Thats how it works isn't it? If you finish something, you get to start something.
So the other day I finished the 30s cot quilt. Here it is all bound and ready to go off to its new home. When I pulled out the camera to take this shot, I spotted the rogue block!
One block has turned around.
When I looked back through wip images of this quilt, it was always like that.
Even when it was in pieces doing the swapsy shuffle on the floor.
Too late to do anything about it now, so on with the next project.
I loaded it's friend on to the frame yesterday and got busy. See those lights in the background?
That is the cooker hood, I had pans on the stove. And was running from the frame to the stove.
Pear and walnut chutney.
Also on the stove was a huge pan of tomato soup, for the freezer and some pickled veggies.
So, with frequent stops to stir the pot and seal jars, eventually I was finished quilting.
Once I was finished in the kitchen I headed to my other room at the front of the house, and put on the binding. I was going to close the binding last night, but Debbie and Bruce called round, so we sat and chatted instead. But before dinner and before they arrived, this happened.
I made another start.
When I was out with Claire and Debbie the other day I bought a wee bundle of Kiwiana fabrics.
I spy a new quilt in the making. There are no preserves to be made today, so once the domestics are done, it will be time to put all of these blocks together.
After I fix the naughty blue one at the bottom!!
One of the things Debbie and I chatted about last night was the moon glow quilt, that big kit I got in the mail last week. We had a quick look through the book, Debbie was blown away and amazed at what I'm taking on. So am I. One block at a time.....
But before I get to that, I have at least one more quilt to make.
Time to go and do, then I get to play.
