I decided to make the quilt
"Bread & Butter'
its a free pattern from Red rooster fabrics...
I first saw it on MayBritts blog ....
Quilt blocks laid out this was Friday & Saturdays lot
...I made 14 all up
Spot the mistake...
cut the material for one block wrong
but didnt realise till Id sewn it
so I will either put this in the middle
or make a cushion with it..
Mind you I didnt read all the instructions before I started
so I sewed the large tri-angles onto the blocks
instead of sewing them together as a block!!
so that makes doing the border a bit hard...
I think Ive decided to lay them out differently
so today I cut out four more
so I can have a Layout of 4x4
This is a picture of Vals Christmas table cloth
which she finished off on Saturday
And this a her MASSIVE quilt which she is hand quilting
Close up of one of the blocks
it is all hand appliqued by needleturn
she put hers all together,hand quilted it
& gave it to the ladies daughter after she passed away
So now we are back to reality
washing,housework & a new hot water system installed today
I am now off to the shops to get some food in !!
Might get some sewing in later this afternoon...
back to work tomorrow...
Oh & I have quite a bit of the material left over
not much lights but plenty of medium & dark
so I have decided to do a sisters choice pattern
with some plain cream as the background
so thats the next one on the drawing board!!
