I wish I could crochet!

This is lovely Rosemary and I don't have a problem with it not being patchwork/quilting.

I was bored on Tuesday as it was too frosty to garden so I made a table centre in bright sunny spring yellow and 2 fabrics with bees as part of their motif. I love it but hubby isn't keen, says its too big at 20" square.

I used some of the strata that was left to create the borders and a navy fabric for the rest of the borders binding and backing.

I knew there was something different as the quilting went in a different direction at that point and I couldn't see why. When it was laid flat I did think rather a lot of light reds but hadn't twigged as to why. I had to dig a round in the scraps box until I found an appropriate bit.

As you say I'm in good company.

I completed the top a couple of weeks ago and did the quilt sandwich.

I started quilting it and was happy with the way it was going. It was laid flat on the table so it doesn't crease. Hubby waked past it a couple of times then says the 'fatal' words : why does that red block not run the same as the others?

Oh no he was right I had joined 3 strips incorrectly and then I spotted another in the bottom left hand corner. Now I think I was struggling with a lack of the red fabric and that was the cause.

Today I unpicked the quilting within 2 segments of the red sections, unpicked the red bits and replaced them, but this had to be done by hand as it was 2/3 quilted and all around the sections.

Back to the quilting tomorrow then the rest of the borders. Tired shoulders today but tomorrow is a new day.

I was looking for the competitions but all I get is the page that tells me there are some but there aren't any below the instructions. Am I just looking too soon?

I started this before Christmas but didn't finish it. But I am being strict with myself and finishing the UFO's before I start anything else. I have my bargello quilt to finish.

Oh the teddies are lovely Rosemary. A lucky little person is going to love that.

I do like that palette Margaret, which people find odd as I am blue/purple colour blind. they look like different shade of the same colour. I also love minty greens/aqua colours too. Though my favourite colour is softish yellows/primrose/lemon.

that is exactly what it should be. A celebration and memory. I think that is the perfect place for a lovely quilt.

Being in a 'strange' mood is also understandable. Funerals do that for me too. Eileen x
