May blocks for do. Good Stitches


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?)

Zaki is 4 and has never got up before 7...I don't know how I would have coped if he had gotten up earlier! Your quilt is going to be great.

Enjoy those early mornings. We had Little P for two days last week and although Im an early riser I was challenged to sound enthused about the day BEFORE I'd had my coffee.

Loving those zig zags ....
