A while back I had to search for the joy of patchwork, but recently I have been able to put the fun back. I really enjoyed the Sue Ross blocks, but I auditioned so many fabrics for only 16 blocks, that there seemed to be enough left over for another quilt top.
All the pieces except the border fabric, setting triangles and squares were already cut. I am proud to say that I found them in my stash. I bought soooo much fabric for Sue's blocks (wish I knew the name of her quilt) that I was shamed into using the offcuts and raiding the stash for this one. In design, I followed the KISS rule. It wasn't hard to put it together. In fact, it was fun.
On the knitting front, I seem to have created my first woollen UFO. I have knitted all the way to the neck, joined the shoulder seams and started picking up stitches for the collar.
But it looks horrible. No photo - too mortifying!
I will have to unpick it carefully and try again. So the red jumper is making its way temporarily into my UFO cupboard that is mistaken by some as a vast and apparently expanding black hole.
The S quilt is being quilted bit by bit.
Apologies for blog torpor. Life is getting in the way.
