|dark photos - I live in Melbourne and today is back to winter!|
I had visions of a completely solid zig zaggy quilt when I chose this block for my turn as quilter back in May, but I just couldn't get the tops and bottoms of the rows to meet, so I have made a stripey zig zag quilt instead. The stripe of fabric is not a solid, but a spot, which is pretty hard to see here. The top is finished and I just have the back to piece. I have some blocks to put on the back too. I just love a pieced back!
I'm not sure when I will get the back done and then get the quilt stretched and quilted, but it is on my "to-do" list for October. Our grandson arrived with my Bradley from Adelaide yesterday and our house is now rocking to the strains of a four year old! He's one of those start-the-day-at-5:30am kind of kids, (I know they exist, but none of my kids were like that. They were all much more civilised.) which I'm sure will be quite a challenge for us. Tune in next time to see us sleep deprived and loving it! (What's not to love about four year olds?)
