It’s Hatbox time again 🙂
Actually, if I’m honest, it’s slightly overdue, since I normally post about this project on the last day of the month. But what with the recent trip, and being totally
obsessed focussed on the caravan quilts, I didn’t allow enough time to get the last two hatbox blocks done by the usual date.
Next month, I’ll show the final layout of all the blocks, and perhaps even the start of the hand quilting which is next on the menu for this quilt. I’m going to enjoy that, because I do like a bit of hand quilting, especially when the piece is not too large and heavy. Time to start building up my quilting calluses!
Lynn at Tialys is also making a hatbox quilt wall hanging, but started later and has fewer to make, so she’s finished her blocks and is on to the quilting part. Click through to her blog to have a look at hers, they’re all gorgeous, being made from Liberty fabrics. She’s in a later timezone than I am, so maybe wait a little before you go over there to give her time to get her post up.
Bee, Myself and I is a forum for ‘selfish sewing’; any stitchery which is purely for pleasure and not for anyone else. The original concept belongs to Carla of Granny Maud’s Girl. To find out more, you can click through on either her blog link, or using the button a fair way down in the left hand column.
Time to return to stash all the pieces that didn’t make the final cut.
