If you read my blog regularly, you will have seen the steady steps of progress with the making of this spectacular quilt. Merrily's now finished it... boy was she pleased with herself! It's all her own design made with inspiration from a similar picture in an old magazine. The centre took a while and, I think you will agree, it looks just like the Statue Of Liberty? It's made of all HST (Half Square Triangles) and was the starting point for the project.
The border blocks mix all things British with all things American and such a lot of thought has gone into them.
Toot toot toot Merrily, your quilt is absolutely brilliant!
|Di Butterfly fiddled about with the little pockets on her advent panel. They are quite tricky really, especially to get all the tiny seams level, but they're worth the effort... so I've heard, he he he|
|Barbara BB sandwiched and quilted her cushion panel. The Ohio Star can be quilted all the way round the middles and the star without stopping to tie off any ends... which helps to make it a peoples favourite!|
|Taa-daa, Michelle My Belle spent quite a while deciding on the layout of her blocks trying to get an even spread of colour and fabric design... Success as you can see, it is fabulous! Borders have been chosen too, they're probably on by now.|
More new fabrics came... I know, what was I thinking... but they are really irresistabubble. I have a man building more shelves today, under the ironing boards!! Then I think I have maxed out on shelving... I thought that last time this happened though!
I have a great selection of fabrics on clearance at the moment... £5.00 per metre so, quite worth a lookey-look ... With shelves bursting... something has to give!
