I cut my 9-patch squares 3 1/2" and the little quilt is approximately 16" x 20" completed.
Then I decided to hand-quilt with Perle thread (yes, again!) and the more I quilt with big stitches the more I am enjoying it - just adds that little something to a quilt!
Have you ever used the new (well, new to me!) Clover Fork Pins - not to miss out on anything new - I had to try them and I think they are great to get perfect interlocking seams.
Tomorrow is our great horse race - the Melbourne Cup - they call it The Race That Stops a Nation. Most people have a little flutter, lots of luncheons, hats, glamour, bubbly, etc. I was silly enough to trip over a trolley at Bunnings (our nation-wide hardware/garden store) yesterday, - no broken bones, thank goodness, but lots of skin off and a very sore knee, so I don't think this Little Black Duck will be going anywhere tomorrow. To those who are, have a very happy, lucky day!
