Dear sister Moya has been busy too. Rmemeber her collection of sunflower fabrics? Well today she brought round the completed flimsey and spread it over my bed, it reached the floor on three sides and tucked up neatly against Teddy.
She has used the Turning Twenty block pattern. She's going to back it with yellow and green fleecy fabric and is unsure how to bind it, but I'll keep you posted, she shouldn't be long getting this one finished as it is to be a Christmas gift for her friend.
I finally got to my table runner, I kept it simple with only two patched blocks. I hunted around for days trying to find a block I liked, then on Sunday (9th Dec) I turned the page on my block a day calender and there it was looking at me.
It's called four patch in nine. Hunney selected the fabrics and also helped me to cut them. I wasn't fast enough with the camera, I did try to get a pic, his mum will never believe me. Not the greatest picture I know, but here's how far I got.
It's well and truly pinned waiting for me to baste and quilt it. I've used an off cut off fleece as wadding and the backing is cotton.
And last but not least, we also put our tree up yesterday and as you can see Santa is very organised and has dropped off a few items in advance.
Now I really have to do some of that school work! I'll reward myself with basting the table runner later.
