Keeping It Together Again quilt I found a set of extra 9 patch blocks. I'm really not in to batiks these days and wanted to pitch the whole lot but my inner-hoarder couldn't let them go. I decided as a compromise with myself that I would use the blocks to make a charity quilt and then I could donate the rest of the fabrics. I had a large piece of the stripey blue fabric but in the end it turned out I was one block short for the intended layout. Not to be thwarted I made a 4 patch for the center block and went with it.
BostonMQG retreat, the perfect post-cocktail hour project:-)
Meadow Mist Design and the amazing Caro of Splityarn that I tried out on this one and I got to use my new giant ruler that I won. I usually run a basting stitch around the edges of my flimsy before I baste the layers together but I think from now on I'll take another pass around the edge when the quilting is done to hold everything together before throwing it in the washing machine.
