|4 blocks from my new project ready to piece.|
I have cut maybe half the blocks that I need and hop to cut the remainder later,. I have adapted the pattern That I "borrowed" from Peach Patch Quilts to suit the size of the Blue Bird print for the center square. I have also mixed up the other fabrics to get a more scrappy look and to accommodate the amount of material that I have in each print. I am falling in love with this quilt even at this early stage, I think that it is destined to be a birthday gift for my wonderful neighbour Marina, she is the best person that I could choose to have living next to me, Once the good weather arrives we will have days out looking round Garden Centers and plant Nurseries, not forgetting a spot of lunch here and there
Do not forget that I need a name for the quilt, the Log Cabin is called Dave's Delight. It is for a colleague , named Dave, who has dropped several not so subtle hints over the last 6 months or so, even telling me what colours his wife has in the bedroom, as he is leaving to start an exciting new job in a brand new building I thought I would surprise him.
I do have a guilty secret, last year I bought the fabric and made the 9 patch blocks for a quilt, I liked all the patterns but once assembled I found them DULL and somber. I put them on hold for quite a while then 2 weeks ago I wandered into a quilting shop that I had only just discovered and picked up a stack of Christmas Fabrics. I think that 2 of these used as sashing and borders will lighten and brighten the blocks to nearer my taste. This will be next on my list of WIPs to finish.
I will finish by wishing you all a very Happy Easter Sunday, Enjoy the Eggs but remember that Easter is based on a pagan celebration of fertility and that chocolate is regarded as an aphrodisiac , so remember that
a LITTLE of what you fancy does you good.
