I've just spent the last hour installing DSL, what sheer joy to have the phone line freed up and have quick page loading. I had forgotten how quick it is.
Back to the blocks, I have just counted and I only have another 4 1/2 blocks to do and the stitching on the Bronwyn Hayes blocks will be completed. I think I need to re-trace 2 of those blocks as the stitching will end up being too close to the seam line, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. So to stay with the theme of the Bronwyn Hayes blocks I'll share a couple more photo's with you.
I've been collecting fabrics to use for the setting of these blocks for some time now and I must admit I'm ready to start putting it together. It won't look anything like the photo on the cover of the book as I've changed the size of all the blocks and added blocks that weren't actually official blocks but just doodles from the book. Plus I'm not overly fond of square quilts, I'm yet to sleep in a square bed. I much prefer to have a quilt that covers the side of the bed, hiding the mattress and base and those revolting legs on the frame.
I'm thinking that once the quilt is finished that I'll offer the book as some sort of prize here on my blog. The book is in very good condition and has not just the blocks for the quilt but also bag patterns and pin cushions. I'm it's first owner and the cost of the book was over $30 AU.
