I thought I’d better put in an appearance this weekend to prove I’ve not dropped off the face of the planet. It’s been fairly hectic around here as we’re contemplating a big house move but I have managed to sneak in a bit of sewing time. A couple of weeks ago I received this package from Wendy to make a quilt for Siblings Together!
|Freebird jelly roll and Ikea bird fabric plus treats for me from Wendy!|
I’m using the Half Time Quilt pattern for these quilts as it’s quick and I obviously know how to make the blocks in my sleep 😉 This time around I’m reversing the placement of print and solids so it will be more child friendly with less white.
I’ve lost track of how many blocks I’d made at this point but there were lots!
I’m really happy to find that my instructions are accurate for the fabric requirements as I had enough strips to complete the final block, phew!
|Yet more piles|
Now for the tedious trimming of 144 blocks.
|Piles of trimmings|
I’m hoping to get cracking on the construction this week if I don’t have to hide them away so they don’t show up in the Estate Agents photos. For some reason unbeknownst to me it appears that not everyone loves fabric!! Go figure! Hope you’ve all had a good weekend. Catch you soon x
