It does pay to be the last one to leave the office sometimes!
Just as I was grouching out of the lift last night, and went to sign out, the receptionist asked if I would like to take these home! Well that was enough to put a smile back on my face!
I’m sure I didn’t arrange them as they deserved, once I got home, but they have really brightened up my kitchen this morning!
I have been crazily busy with work this week and a job this morning has jeopardised sewing time today too but I did however manage to make the 2nd block for my quilt last night! Not by hand this time… shame on me… I am behind by 2 issues already and needed to produce at least one little something this week, otherwise I would have truly gone mad!
So here it is… The Whirlwind block
Thank you to Mrs C for her helpful comment on my last quilt post, I remembered to press the lighter seams onto the darker ones. None too neat with the snip, but hopefully you will get the reason behind this!
History: Said to be a variation of the Pinwheel design, seen in quilts from the mid-1700s, and features rotating ‘sails’.
No. of pieces: 8
When I started this blog, I didn’t think for one minute I would be including quilting posts but I kind of like the pressure that is mounting on this one. Firstly from my neighbour who has kindly bought me the subscription. She asks me each week how I am getting on and I feel truly ungrateful if I haven’t made any progress! Secondly, I have Little Miss Ooobop! on my case to spend quilting time together and lastly but not leastly, if I share my progress on here, then I have just got to reach a finale at some point! Though I’m not even thinking about how many more blocks I have to create yet… wish me luck!
