I have been unable to withstand temptation any longer.
Out came the Moda jelly roll I have been hoarding. Pre-cuts make life much easier when you’re not operating at full efficiency. I contacted Aussie Hero Quilts for a new mission, and have been given the ideal task: a quilt for a Leading Aircraftwoman who has left the colour and theme entirely up to the quilt-maker. So I’m going totally girly, as an antidote to the large quantities of neutrals she’ll be encountering in her working and living environment.
In case you’re interested, this range is Scrumptious, by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. I’m going to be joining the strips horizontally in the order you see them, then slicing through the lot vertically about 2/3 of the way across, inverting the narrower section and inserting a white sashing strip between the two sections and a white border round the outside. I shall have to see what I have for backing, and there’s plenty of colour choices to pick from for the binding.
What I’m going to do for quilting is still an inscrutable mystery, but I expect it’ll reveal itself soon. Whatever it is, it’ll be done by machine as I have a time deadline to meet which doesn’t allow for hand quilting.
But before I start, I have a lot of fairly tedious but very necessary pressing to do, o joy.
