Here is a project started a long time ago on a trip to Darwin, perhaps in 1996/7. I had great fun buying the fabric from "Frangipani" fabric shop which has since moved to Tasmania. A friend showed me an easy "floating four-patch" technique that I just had to try and in a flurry of excitement this quilt was born. There are 169 blocks and it is 1.75 sqm (70sq").
So this quilt spent many seasons at the back of the cupboard.
After seeing the "Trick or Treat" quilt in "When the Cold Wind Blows" by Barb Adams and Alma Allen I thought the applique in the setting triangles might work. On it went and the quilt was ready for some custom long arm machine quilting. Thanks to Verna, the quilt was almost ready.
That was more than 12 months ago. I knew what binding I'd use. I just didn't feel excited by the quilt any more.
Yesterday, I needed to clean up the floor in my sewing area and it seemed like the time to finally finish this quilt. No name, no label. It is an unloved reminder of why projects should not languish at the back of the cupboard for any length of time.
