I have been a bit absent in the last week or two. I have had a bad case of the flu, a bit run down, busy with shows and quilt in items, grandsons birthday and usual stuff.
I am exhausted. I have had a few days at home doing nothing but it is time to catch up.....
I am a bit late advertising FNSI. It's been and gone but I did join in.
Well this is what I got up to this weekend.
I am making another quilt for the Aussie Heroes. The request for this one is a Blue TRIP AROUND THE WORLD. These quilts are usually made with squares. Starting in the centre with one colour and each round is a different colour. With this one it is to be all shades of blue.
The size of an Aussie Hero quilt is 40-42" x 70-72".
So, that means a square block won't be as good or effective with such a small width. I had a bit of a think and came up with the block size, cut, 2.5" wide x 3.5" high.... This gives the rectangular shape.
So Friday night I cut all the pieces.
Saturday I sewed the blocks as per Bonnie Hunters theory.
Using leaders and Enders to help with thread. No wastage.
And then webbing the rows...
I have to have this quilt finished and in the mail by next weekend along with another 2 spiderweb quilts.,it's going to be a busy week of quilting.
Keep on watching this space to see the finished quilts...
