This lady's first quilt was soft browns and creams -
This is Marilyn pinning her creation together ready to quilt. Just as a matter of interest the quilt below is made with exactly the same block but every other block has been rotated. They don't look like the same block at all do they?
She started off the present quilt with purples and is thoroughly enjoying branching out into bright colours, much to the disgust of her daughter-in-law! You don't have to make quilts that match your decor all the time do you? Colours make your heart sing. The purple one is singing loud and confident! I'll get a photo of the completed thing.
I've got another block on the go at the moment but I've done something for the second time with this quilt - I've made a 9" block instead of a 12" block. I'll add another border.....
What about the crochet blanket?????
I tried a couple of different borders but ended up with a really simple one. I wanted to have a slightly lacy edge but it looked naff in white or ecru.
I love the vintage look but at 30" x 36" it isn't a practical size for anything except a pram blanket and I just don't think it would stand up to the rigours of frequent washing.
The cakes from my 'bakery' this week were Tiramisu Cupcakes. Seen here at Hilary's because I forgot to take a picture at home.
Well I'm off to make some Macaroni Cheese for tea. I've got some stewing beef in the fridge so I might put a casserole in the oven at the same time. I have to make sure I put the extra in the freezer for later before Will polishes it all off in one sitting. I always feel better coming home from work knowing there is something ready for dinner, so it's a disappointment when Will has scoffed it all before I get there! Until next time. xx
