I love school holidays! No school runs which means uninterupted sewing! The girls are happy playing outside building fairy houses around the birdbath and watching Madagascar 2, the latest movie on high rotation in our house. I love watching that movie too, definitely lacking on the cracking, my friend.
What better holiday activity can one think of than to sew a queen sized quilt for ones bed! I only have two other WIP's for our bed, lets start another? This one is nice and easy...
So I have spent a day cutting up Amy...... into rectangles and squares.... and then added a strip of homespun to make each of the blocks. The pattern I'm using is this one here, its called Highlight. I'll call it that too, till a better name strikes me.
Then rearranging it lots of times, I wasn't liking how the dark blue grey strip was saying look at me, look at me so much. I decided too, to add an extra block to the sides, so it will drap down more on the side of our bed.
And here is the top nearly finished! Its massive, 76 inches square and I still have a border to add! I'm definately getting this one professionally quilted.
