Got the Gees Bend Bug

Long time - no post!

I've been busy doing other things, most of which cannot be shown.

I've also been cutting up shirts, corduroy and denim and once the corduroy was cut up got itchy fingers to start putting a quilt together. Black and pink - yummy!

As most of the pieces were very oddly shaped, I immediately thought Gees Bend.

So here is a record of my progress.

The first 2 blocks

the next 2

and yesterday's progress.

Unfortunately I've now run out of the dark pink and it doesn't look the same with just the pale pink and black so I've sidelined it until I can find some more dark pink.

In the meantime, I've got the denim bin out and am about to start playing with that.

Watch this space!

More soon
