After a break from my sewing machine, I threw myself back into it last night and put together the 4 blocks for the summer round of the 4 Season's Doll Quilt swap. I should have taken more photos while it was coming together, as it was 4 wobbly blocks, then I sewed on 1.5 inch of sashing and it turned into the below quilt top!
I have it pinned on my felt wall, over the red, white and black "Squid Eye" quilt which I haven't touched in months. Pinned it up waiting for some inspiration to strike on how to quilt the thing. I'm thinking stippling the red and blue and a straight stitch in the ditch for the sun's rays? Hopefully that will tone down the blue cross as thats all I can see at the moment. It actually looks a bit religious to me.... Or maybe I shouldn't say that, cause if you point out the faults of your own quilt, nobody knows they are faults until you say it. LOL
And on a sad note, here is Grace and her beloved Uncle Just, her favourite Uncle, Daz's middle brother. Justin and his wife are moving to Brisbane as a result of a work promotion for him which is a fantastic opportunity for them but sad for us as the girls, especially Grace just adores him. She doesn't get that he's moving away though, she thinks he's going to live in Bindi's tree house! On the plus side, they are still in Australia, only a 4.5 hour plane ride away. He doesn't know I have a blog but see you soon Uncle Just! We'll all miss you!
