Yellow and red is not my favourite colour combination. Red does not star much in my quilts. I don't know whether it's because I don't like tomatoes, or I don't like tomatoes because they are red (and have seeds, and don't taste nice and have lots of different textures). Presenting the tessellating 'S' quilt.
I have been told the pattern is called "Double S". Thanks for all the suggestions regarding the outside edge. I tried all your ideas and eventually found the border in my stash, depriving me the opportunity to go shopping.
It feels good to have only used fabric from my (large) stash and to have finished off a UFO. It only took 12 years and 10 days. Once the new design was settled on, the blocks came together quickly. It reminded me of a must read book. I just couldn't put it aside until it was finished. The plan is to use big stitch quilting. Fingers crossed I can finish it before 2012. While I am quilting I hope to settle on a name for it.
The back of my jumper (sweater) is also complete, but I am once again struggling with the intricate pattern at the beginning of the front.
The 'S' quilt had to make way for another more recent start. Once a month I am in a class Sue Ross teaches at Quiltsmith on a Sunday. I have long admired her quilt. She made 9 blocks, but I am enjoying it so much I am on my way to 16 blocks.
This week I have really enjoyed all the blog posts about the Sisters Outdoor Quilt show. Now that would be a show I would like to go to.
