The white quilt is finished

Standard
Finished & in place

The white quilt survived the wash, but due to my washing machine being ‘intelligent’ it weighs what’s in it & adjusts the amount of water it uses. Normally that’s great, but not if you’re trying to wash out the blue preprinted lines, they are still very faintly there, it really needs another wash. It can wait until the better weather.

This is the kit I used, it was really easy to do. You needed wadding , backing & quilting thread too. It’s just small running stitch & it looks stunning, I used a dark variegated purple thread, for a good contrast.

Finally, I’ve finished icing the Christmas cake, I still have a few bits to make as GF cakes don’t seem to keep that well.

Luna is waiting for Father Christmas.

Luna & I wish everyone a very happy Christmas.

Solar Flare quilt phase 1

Standard

I really loved the look of the solar flare quilt, shown on Tula Pinks update, I showed it to Mum & she brought it for me. I haven’t paper foundation paper pieced for a while. It was lovely to get back into it.

Yellow & pink block

This is the first set I made, I soon got back into the swing of folding, cutting & pressing.

Block 2
Blocks 2 & 3 together

So that’s the big square blocks done, on to the smaller ones

Block 4

These blocks are triangles, so together they make quite nice squares.

Blocks 5 &6

So with 4 of each block made, a large quantity of squares cut, 2 from each fabric & some borders cut.

It’s time to start thinking about construction. Time to grab a coffee & read though the next lot of instructions.
