From hotch-potch applique to hotch-potch quilting! I can see now why quilters have so many tools of the trade, things that I look at and think - yuech, maths, that's no fun! Armed with one of Little P's Richard Scarry books (template), and a pair of sharp scissors, I set myself the task of making a summer quilt for P's bed.
Here it is so far, in all it's unfinished glory. It's quite big, as I want it to go over her pillow, or not, depending on the day (I'm very fickle - so I need options). Made with oblongs of left over fabric sewn into strips, and as I suspected I've gone wonky in parts, but I quite like the over all look. I just have to put wadding in and back it now - still tossing up what to do as far as binding? It's a bit big, so I guess I'll just sew it straight onto the backing. It's been fun, and I'll be doing this again, but maybe with a few more tools and allot more patience!
