A Q4L top made up of blocks donated by Wanda at Exuberant Color.
Next off the line.
Another Q4L top made up from squares, again donated by Wanda. I added fabric from FQ's that people have sent with their blocks and from my red stash.. Needs a border and then it can be stored with the one above.
This is supposed to be a Disappearing 9 Patch but I got over-zealous with the reds!
Look what is nearly finished ........
and these are interspersed with Blueberry Fool (Leaders and Enders).
When the whirring of the sewing machine stops (or in other words when she's finally decided she's had enough, the bobbin runs out and there is smoke coming out of the foot pedal (only joking!)), there is always Halloween Houses.
The giant cobweb is coming along nicely. Not exactly bang in the middle of the quilt, but that doesn't matter.
I've stopped marking (you can see where I did mark the quilt - dratted chalk!) and it is so easy. I'm amazing myself at how much I can get done in a couple of hours, sitting at the kitchen table (this is one heavy quilt) listening to Stephen Fry reading the Harry Potter books. Now if that isn't inspiration for this quilt I don't know what is!
Mum arrives tonight - as I type this she is sitting at Lille station waiting for the TGV to Angouleme. I haven't seen her for 2 years and although we speak on the phone nearly every day, I'm really looking forward to her visit.
A beef daube is simmering away in the crockpot filling the house with the scent of red wine and herbs, the weather is foggy and cold and it is definitely hunker down with a quilt weather. Which reminds me. Where did I put all those denim strips?. Must get them out and start piecing if it is to be ready for next September.
Catch ya later!
