So now the second promised quilt from my dinner party in February is done!
This one was made from the rest of the 3 packs of charm squares that I bought from the quilting shop in Victor Harbour on my holiday. Plus the white from my stash and a mix of b/w polka dots and grey, also from the stash. The back is from a thrifted doona cover. I wish I’d bought another charm pack – this quilt is a lap-sized quilt and I would’ve liked it to have been a bit bigger.
Every time I use HSTs (half square triangles) I hate getting the points aligning. Especially when I have to unpick part of a seam and try again. MANY expletives come out of my mouth when actually sewing these quilt tops and I vow – never again.
But once they’re done they look so effective.
Ian requested blues, but I like the way the bits of green add contrast. I think they make the quilt pop.
Yesterday I started work on a baby quilt for Jack29.
No, he’s not expecting! One of his close friends is, so he requested a quilt. In my wisdom, I’ve picked a design with around 450 pieces.
Maybe lockdown #4 has affected me more than I think…
