Getting on...



It's surprising what you can get done when you ignore all the other stuff that perhaps you should be doing. But I've managed to get the main part of my quilt pieced now. I don't think the photo really shows the true colours - the band across the middle should be red and it looks a bit pink to me. I think it still conveys the idea of the colours moving across the quilt.

Planning the border may take a few days as I like to work out what I need to cut - and then walk away and then double check if my calculations are correct and also check if I have enough material. I also need to have a think about whether to hand or machine quilt. At the moment it measures 39 by 51 inches - so even with a border it's not too large - well not compared to the last one.

A huge thank you to all of you who posted such nice comments about my last completed quilt. It's so nice to know you're all out there. I do reply to comments posted but I know some have the settings so this isn't an option.

Thanks again and I'll keep you posted.

Is that a split nine-patch block you are using? Very effective. I'm very impressed with your measure twice, cut once technique - I should try it sometime LOL!

Wow, so quick and so cool-looking! I love the movement of colour you've achieved.

WOW - the colour flow on this is fantastic. It looks quite complex in the smaller picture, when I clicked for a larger view I couldn't believe how simple the blocks are. Can't wait to see how you do the borders :)
