Thought I should check in! I have been busy in the sewing room with all manner of projects.....
I have just finished the second of the Baby Play Mats that I am making for my friend. Both quilts are now washed and ready to deliver. The twist blocks were quite easy to put together, but I did learn one thing..... to cut the squares which make up the twist piece at least 1" larger than the square that the twist is attached to. The pattern suggest 5-1/4" squares for the twist and 4-1/2" square for the base, but on the quilt with the red centre squares I made the twist squares 5-1/2" and it did make it much easier to attach them.
The photos make the quilts look all crinkly, but in reality they are not! It was quite windy outside when I took the photos:-)
So what else have I been up to??? Well, I have been very busy putting together my Christmas gifts for my stitching friends, but as they do read my blog..... I can't show you what I am making!!! (Sorry girls! you will just have to wait until Friday)
My next project will be the Dolly Baskets for the little girls in my family. I will use the same pattern that was used in the Quilted Basket Swap on the Quilting Gallery earlier this year.
Now to dig out all of that PINK fabric I bought to make the baskets.......
