That was a little bit longer of a break than I envisaged.
You know the drill – life gets in the way, I won’t bother explaining. It’s not very interesting. But while I’ve not been blogging, I have been busy. And whilst I’m being very productive, none of it seems particularly noteworthy or blogworthy.
But! I. Have. Finished. Stuff!!!
Want to see?
It’s still a flimsy yet but as you all know by now, flimsies are good enough right now.
I’ve at least cut the binding – it’s a pretty old UFO and I think that I’d never match the fabrics up now.
I really did struggle with my choice of flower, but in the end I used the outer border as an influence. I found a flower I really liked from the border, enlarged it and appliqued it on.
I look back at all my old quilts, the old UFO’s from so many years ago, and I really wonder what I was thinking. I like this one, I do – but I have a limited amount of walls, and a limited amount of beds – so why did I make something totally out of my colour choice, in a size too small to be of any use?
Too much time on my hands back then, I think.
So that’s show and tell for today. I hope it won’t be another month before I post again, but then again I won’t make any rash promises.
I hope you’ve been happily quilting in my absence!
