After your fantastic comments on my Procrastination (which I am good at!) a Plan started to form in my mind.
I love squares (hate trying to get them to fit together!) and I love white (I love it in my crochet cushion, not too keen on the snow now though, bored with it!).
So I thought, my quilt will be made up of blocks of squares, surrounded with white, to calm it down, give it some definition.
So I'm choosing vintage and new, mixing it up, as I said. Unfortunately, I'm not great at the Precision bit, yikes, all those corners to line up...I will never get finished, or started for that manner!
So armed with tutorial I had a go at '2-for-1 Nine patch', yes didn't mean too much to me either!
Mixed results I must say, which I'm putting down to the fact I haven't got one of those quilt ruler thingys, not my lack of Precision! Actually, I'm using a narrow ruler and it's not really holding the fabric still enough to get a good cut. I do think it will be a really good way for me to put them together, once I've practiced more, who knows I might have a go at other patterns!
Want to see?
Not so good....
Must get one of those proper ruler thingys!
These fabrics next I think......
I've got a really busy few days coming up, Eldest Bea has a birthday and I'm trying to get her crochet cushion finished. I have discussed with her the possibility it won't be, she told me not to worry. Some empathy perhaps developing for a mothers plight? No! She is making me a fabric covered notebook in her textile class, apparently I should have had it for my birthday (December!).
