This has been one of my favourites.
I can’t really explain why. A combination of colours I love, a simple but effective pattern, improvement in my appliqué skills, lovely texture, a big improvement in my hand quilting skills, and no deadline.
And now it’s done. Bound, labelled, washed gently in wool wash with a couple of colour catchers to get rid of the marker, and then tumble dried. Puffy and soft. Ready to go to its new home. You guys were right, that purple batik was perfect as binding and I still have at least 30cm of the full WOF left.
So, what shall I do next? Quilt another handful of Hatbox blocks? Make a couple of envelope blocks for ST&D? Make a scrappy block for ScrapHappy? Nah. I need a tiny vacation. Like, maybe… a day or so?
Think I’ll stop and sit a while before I get the next job out. This calls for chocolate.
