Katy, as always, was quick off the mark and had my quilt finished and sent in record time. And true to form, mine took a little longer!!
I'm totally in love with mine. Whilst I'm blog-hopping late at night, I pull it off the back of the sofa and wrap it around my legs and feet. Totally snuggly.
The fabrics I chose were Makower Zen 2 in the Slate colourway.
The fabrics Katy chose were all flowery in a blues, reds and pinks. Totally exuberant - just like the lady herself!!
This is the first "proper" quilt I have made, and I must admit to having a crisis of confidence when I'd laid the strips out. I just wasn't sure the combination was right - a theme that runs through all of my sewing.
But the construction was simple. I decided to quilt inside the seams of every "block". After re-reading how to do the binding a good half a dozen times I managed to get it sewn on correctly and then took HOURS to hand sew it on the reverse side. I have a total aversion to hand sewing but it had to be done properly.
As a result I really have caught the quilting bug!!
