Sooooo I've finished the top for the blue & white quilt, its lookin cute
But now I need a wee bit of advice or an opinion, you see I've run out of fabric for the binding, I could just go & buy some plain binding but I just cannot stand that horrid stiff excuse for binding they sell in my nearby fabric shop. I don't have time to wait for more from overseas so my choices are these......
I've put a border of blue followed by a thicker white band so I've picked out these two from my stash, its gotta be one of these........which one??????
Pink or turquoise.................................
Opinions please :D!!!!!!
And movin on................... my much neglected ripple has been given a bit of attention over the last few evenings, its just soooo very relaxing while watching season two of 24 (of all things) not exactly relaxing viewing, but great nonetheless.
I'm at 75 rows, i think I,ll go to 100 then edge it & find a home at home for the finished piece.
Have enjoyed this one very much, but then I really enjoyed seeing any hooky piece come together.
There's just such pleasure & satisfaction in creating something sweet for your home!!
Today after being inspired by Sarah at FairyFace Designs i finally got back to my Ruby fabric.
Last time i touched it, it looked like this....
I just wasn't sure where to go with it, but after seeing Sarah's pinwheels, inspiration hit.
I've never done pinwheels before so it was a bit of a challenge
This lot came from one charm pack, I have three more so it should make a pretty nice size quilt.
I'm gonna border each square in white, wish me luck.
All the Quilts I've done so far are just plain squares so this one may be venturing into new territory for me :D.
Go have a look at Sarah's blog, its really great & she's Irish ......Yayyy!!
Well its 24 time (I don't have TV channels, so we tend to buy different series to watch & this is our latest offering)
I'm in sweats, woolly socks, crochet at the ready....here goes xxxxxx
Hope you all have a wonderful evening & an even more wonderful weekend
Love you guys, its just so lovely to meet more & more new friends all the time,
Lots of love & millions of hugs & kisses Karen xxxxxxx
