These blocks are so old they almost need to be carbon dated.
I can't remember when I started putting the red and yellow half square triangles together, but it was certainly last century. The book by Judy Hooworth and Margaret Rolfe excited me
and I started the project on the cover. But you know how things are...it soon was put aside for an even more stimulating project (that I can't remember at all!) and really only came out of the cupboard on the occasional clean up spree.
As we all know, quilts are full of memories. This one is no exception.
My husband went to Adelaide on an overnight trip to help out a friend. While he was there he called the LQS and asked them for all their red and yellow fat quarters. A couple of hours later, when ringing to see if he could collect them, he was surprised to hear they were still cutting!! What an unexpected treat.
Times have changed and so has my taste. I no longer want the quilt on the cover. After fiddling around with the blocks I was happy with the "S" pattern but the two tone look didn't appeal any more. A couple of rebels were made. This time around I think there will be a finish, particularly since my younger daughter, Sarah, claims I have never made a quilt especially for her.
It is still up on the design wall but I want to put a border on, with some floating "S". Dear blog friends, I would love it if you would help me decide on a colour for the border.
