Here I go ... doing silly things again!
Today I have started to make a raggy quilt for DD, Angela, for her birthday on the 27th, yes, January - as I say - wish me luck!
I bought these great charm squares from Kerri's and Julie's Online Quiltshop - Provincial Patch! For all your Aussie girls - great 30% sale there until the end of January and Kerri and Julie are so lovely!
Now, I have five charm packs of Arcadia by Moda and figure with 1/2" seams allowed, I should end up with a lap quilt approx 68" x 55". I have lovely Quilt Lite batting (this being cotton, it will fray very nicely!) on hand and had some Fusions backing fabric, purchased at a sale, so this will be a very cheap quilt.
Look at that funny white plastic thing - it is called a Hera Marker (by Clover, I think) and one of its uses is to mark quilting lines that will become invisible - see the lower brown print fabric. I should be able to whiz through the quilt-as-you- go quickly!
I have my dear wee grandson, Byron (one of 4-year old twins) with us for a few days? (am sure you all know about the boredom of school holidays and kids fighting!). Guess who is going to give into anything his little heart desires, so I can get this quilt done?
I'm on a mission - so hugs and happy stitching - Lurline♥
