It was a fine windy dry season day here in the tropics so I popped the quilt in the machine for a wash and line dry. My darling Mr decided to hang it out for me as I was dealing with a sick Master 2.
Needless to say we had a chat about hanging quilts out on the line when I eventually made it downstairs to find this…..
Which resulted in the nice clothes line mark you see in this (which is also my first picture of the pieced back – looks pretty good I think!)
All’s well that ends well – lesson learnt and I am grateful for the Mr as he really is a good egg.
So being house bound with illness seems to have sped up the binding process significantly this week.
Here are a couple of quick photos taken at home, when I am feeling better I will get outdoors and do a few ‘finally done’ photos.
And one of my blog name sake – just because.
Ten solid hours of quilting and its done! Some slight wonk on some of the lines, but pretty pleased with how it has turned out. Straight line quilting is a lot harder than you might think, as I found out.
Just adding the orange binding now – which really pops. Hopefully will be able to post the finished product later this week, hand sewing is not my favorite part of quilting.
The piecing was mainly done last weekend and the borders added during the week. Its so bright and busy – perfect for bright and busy Master 2.
Just need to finish the pieced back tonight and then I can get onto putting it all together – good thing its a long weekend here!
So my project that was brewing last week is now started – a quilt for Master 2. Have decided on a rail fence style as it is simple and quick and looks really effective.
5 hours of piecing last night – whew I’m tired!
I have been collecting some bright boy themed fabric over the past months and its come time to bust some out and get quilty!
I’m thinking a fence rail style quilt or maybe wonky log cabins. I guess that will be decided when I start cutting. Master 2 approves of the fabric choices which is great.
I love this fabric from Aneela Hoey, chosen for my first attempt at a Jelly Roll Race Quilt. Except I wont be racing anyone – this project will take a little time.
I did find a novel way to randomly mix up the strips. Enter Master 2……
Who loved to help! And was very proud of his effort
The quilt is currently a work in progress, so more details to come soon.
