After my friend had visited yesterday I shot up the stair to my play room. I quickly put away all my knitting books and magazines, then looked about for something to do, still on a high from the previous days very fast finish! I had been showing Elaine some of my quilts while she was visiting and also my pile of project boxes. Hmmm, one of them housed several completed blocks, and I knew I had some applique hiding away in a drawer. Out it all came! A bit of playing about on the floor and a couple of extra yellow blocks and in no time I was putting together rows and then a whole top was born. I even got it layered and quilted before my hunney came home.
The border and the back are made from rescued bed sheet. Perfect. I quilted it very simply again, just working in straight lines echoing the seams.
Another very quick finish, A pretty little crib size quilt, made mostly with a Moda Jelly Roll called Butterfly Fling.
I started out in 2009 with two Jelly rolls. I've made two crib quilts and still have plenty of slices of jelly roll left. I was planning another Fling with this fabric while I closed the binding, but I also want to try something else. Watch this space.
DS Jiffy came for his dinner last night and took away his blue quilt. He loves it.
