The dining room is finished thank goodness. It's not the colour I wanted but I actually quite like it and it works with the chairs and curtains (and the mod pod quilt on the design board), so all's well
We are off looking for new lights today. You know when you buy something in a rush, and you never quite work out why, because it's horrible. Well we did that with the lights in the dining room, and now we want something more modern, that we actually like!
So I have my sewing room back, and I could have got on with those curves on the Mod Pod. Did I? No, I started something new!
About a year ago, I agreed to make my friend Rose a quilt. She chose this one from the Jelly Roll Quilt book by Pam and Nicky Lintott
Not really a quilt I would choose to make, but I couldn't dissuade her. I've been gathering blue fabrics for the past 12 months, and finally got around to starting it.
There's been a lot of chain stitching
and I have 110 of theses
and a lot of pressing!
There is just over half here and now I've run out of Kona snow, so all I can do is sew a few strips together. Although I thought it would be a boring quilt to make, it's come together quickly so far, and I've listened to half of a book whilst doing it! And it's been very good for straightening up, and speeding up my straight line sewing!
Just so that you know I haven't abandoned Mod Pod, I have cut some more squares to make the outer curve, and shall be cutting and sewing some more over the weekend. I may even finish my 11 blocks with a bit of luck.
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday as usual.
