Assembly is well under way. I think if I had applied myself (and not used a rotary cutter with 2 blades in it, how is that much stuupidity even possible?) I would have spent about one 1 planning fabric and cutting.
I'm now about 90 minutes into assembly.
So, total current tally: 2,5 hours - it may well be a Quilt in a Day.
There is another baby on the way, in fact, she is due in 6-odd weeks. And when the baby's mum was feeling utterly low by really useless comments from her doctors, I promised I would make her a quilt. This will be a small project, not entirely along her phantasies of a non-pink rock chick, nor within my comfort zone in terms of colour. But it's good to push one's boundaries, yes?
My second finish of the year is basically another large granny square - crocheted in Kaffe Fassett's chunky variegated cotton. I especially love the bordering on this one. Now let's see if I am right about this babe being a boy.
I took a number of projects on the quilt retreat, this was one of them and I'm pleased to say that it's finished!
I'm not too sure about the colours and fabric design but I liked how fast it came together and I really like the quilting on it.
Also, this was quite the deviation from my usual fretting. All I did was divide up squares into light and dark and assemble as they appeared in their piles.
