Sorry been a bit slow to get going this morning! The kids are back at school this week and I was on driving in duty!
Yesterday and today I have been quilting my latest Siblings Together quilt - the July deadline (when summer camps start) is getting ever closer and we still need plenty more quilts so I am doing my best to provide as many as I can.
I am sure there are a few more in the process of being made elsewhere in the UK/world but I am a little nervous that we will not reach our 100 target and don't want to let those children down.
This has been a really easy quilt to put together using lots of scraps for my 'filling' - that is the most time consuming bit. Making the blocks and the top itself is a bit of a doddle!
As the blocks are not as flat and square as one might like them to be, quilting FMQ style, with a swirly pattern, seems to rectify a multitude of sins! The swirliness seems to draw up and gather any excess - could be my favourite pattern and certainly one I don't have to think much about.
Here is my progress ...
The close up - first clear shot of the two coloured background
The back - best view of the quilting - not finished yet though...
And how it looks on the front! Hope to finish today or tomorrow....keep your fingers crossed for me!
