Scrappy quilt 1
Three years ago I started making a scrappy quilt out of 2 1/2 inch blocks - it was fun and I loved working with the bright colours.
Armed with a few squares - I started
I found I could do 1 or 2 blocks during the evening and they didn't take long.
This is one block - there are many ;)
The white with blue flowers is for the sashing and the blue for the border.
I pre-cut the sashing ready to go
Over the years, you will get to know this doorway as it is the easiest place to display the quilts :)
And then, after much difficulty and a little bit of unpicking and a lot of moaning and grumbling I managed to quilt it myself.
I used variegated thread.
Going from corner to corner and ditch stitched along the sashing lines - not a happy time for me doing that - ditch stitching isn't one of my fortes.
..and always one of my favourite sights, seeing the binding rolled read to go :)
And finally the finished quilt :)
