Do you remember that while we were at the festival of quilts in Birmingham I agreed to make my Mother an elephant quilt? So she bought just about every African animal panel at the show. I finally made a start on her elephant quilt. She purchased a large panel of several Ele's at a watering hole, you can see it down there a bit, I got my pictures in the wrong order as usual. So anyway, see that pretty corner stone on the panel?
It made me think of Shoo-fly blocks, so I made some and plan to incorporate them into the quilt somehow.
Pattern? What pattern? I'm making it up as I go along.
I didn't tidy the threads on the Roses quilt as I planned, instead I sat with my knitting last night. The threads have been taken care of though. I woke up at 3am ish, I gave up and got up at 4am! And spent the next two hours going over the back of the quilt. What a mess, there are a lot of tucks and folds, I'm really not so pleased with myself. They'll stay though, I plan to add some more quilting then get it bound before the week is out and I have to go back to work. Having exhausted my meagre supply of green fabric I'll have to wait for more to arrive before I can make any more shoo-fly blocks, so I guess today I'll be doing some more quilting on the roses. Just the borders left to do.
