Gertie quilts for England!
Or tries to, in between looking after small children and avoiding housework. I enjoy all needlework but especially patchwork, hand appliqué, making dresses for my girls, and crochet. Thanks to the encouragement of fellow bloggers and quilters I have now tried FMQ and machine applique instead of procrastinating. In my spare time (!) I also love to read.
This morning (well, lunchtime really - Royal Mail has lets its standards slip) there was a knock at my front door. As a rule I am not known for my speediness, but when I heard that rat-a-tat, I ran downstairs as fast as my little legs would take me.
Because I knew this was coming:
...Kona solids for my Fracture mini quilt! Charlotte has already posted the instructions for cutting the foundation papers here. Superswot Kelly has already done hers. Mine are ... on my list.
And also this arrived in the same parcel:
... yummy yummy Chicopee!
My only finish this week are my September Bumble Bee blocks. These are modified Bento Box blocks for Moira at Kettleboiler, who asked for these blocks in fun boy fabrics for her just-turned-1 year old son:
Hmmmm the contrast doesn't show up well on this photo but in the flesh they are really quite funky! I wish I had had some extra orange to do those 3rd corners with. But I'm sure they will look at home with all of the other Bee ladies' blocks.
I have been plugging away at my daughter's Dolce quilt and have nearly all of the 36 blocks done so with another hour or so I should be able to get a picture of it all laid out very soon.
