I`m hearing a lot about people experiencing an Indian Summer at the moment. It`s still summer here but a bearable 30 C, so no complaints.
I could complain about our postman having done a disappearing act with my batting for the Across the Seas quilt. It should be basted by now and I should be doing the quilting so that I can bind it and put it in the flikr group by next Monday. I`m not.
Instead, I dug out my Kumari Garden FQ bundle and started a baby quilt using this tutorial by Fresh Lemons. Here are the first 6 blocks.
Clearly I was thinking girls when I started making this but as time went on I became less and less thrilled with the pink blocks and I`m drawn to the green and blues one. So my question dear readers is, do I make two quilts separating the colourways or keep it looking bright...and pink? I`m not sure a baby would get a good night`s sleep with this mix but a playmat might be fun.
My favourite block is top middle. I could make a whole quilt of blocks of fussy cuts with wide borders.
You know that lovely feeling when you unexpectedly come across something you`ve lost. Well yesterday I was rooting through one of the many unpacked boxes from our summer move and found my ipod in an old makeup bag. I know. Go figure. I hadn`t seen it since Christmas.
So today I was listening to the album 21 by Adele. Got to love the Adele.
There are still a couple of days left to enter the giveaway. I am blown away by the phenomenal response - thanks everyone!
