An old copy of this magazine, I confess that I did not choose it at random, I had a book mark in it at something that I wanted to make. Of course I put it away and promptly forgot about it, then earlier today I had a reminder when reading a blog post.
I do like any patchwork made with HST, and I have not used them to make a chevron pattern, yet.
These solid cushions are pretty, but I am a scrappy girl at heart and as you may remember I have rather a lot of cushions.
I had a little rootle through the fabric and found some patterned Charm Squares and some white on white that read as solids. Sooooo I paired pattern with white right side together, 42 pairs. Sewed round the outside with a 1/4" seam and cut twice on the diagonal, result 4 HST from each pair.
I have laid a few out to give myself and you an idea of what the outcome will be. This will be a small quilt, I have not done any math as I am not worried about the finished size.
Once I have got all the squares out I can decide then, also whether or not to add a border. The only problem is that there are no new babies in the family, or any expected. I may be able to stretch it to cot/first bed size, time will tell.
The weather today was a mixed bag, torrential driving rain in the early hours, heavy drizzle at first walk time and bright sunshine by lunch.
Dinner is meatballs with pasta, Fran's request. I made them this morning and tweaked my usual tomato sauce recipe to make it a bit barbecueish.
Fran and I will eat soon and then we are going to watch the third Indiana Jones film, you know, the one with the worlds sexiest OAP in. That is Sean Connery of course.
He popped up in something that Fran was watching last night, he played King Arthur.
I was pootling about and just saw bits and pieces as I went back and forth.
Have a good evening, I intend to.
