Like many fellow quilter/bloggers out there in the ether, this year I am contributing a quilt to the Siblings Together Charity. Many of you will know about it, but for those that don't you can read about it here and here.
I made my quilt using one layer cake of Little Apples from Aneela Hoey. I used this really quick technique to make half square triangles, and then played around with the placement until I came up with the design I liked.
It was at this stage that Gordon helpfully asked if there was going to be another column down the side because, did I realise it wasn't centred. Yes dear! Once pieced there was a pause until I could get to Ikea for the
backing fabric. But now it's all finished so yesterday afternoon I took
advantage of the sunny weather and took it out for a photo shoot.
It's not quite the prescribed size, but I was limited by the design, and the colour of the pieces in the layer cake. I just couldn't manage another "round" in the right colours . I hope it will be OK. All I need now is the label, which hopefully is on it's way to me right nowhome and will be much appreciated, then it will be on it's way. It's definitely a girl's quilt, but probably not a girlie girl. Perhaps more of a tomboy type! Anyway, I'm sure the guys at ST will find it a good home and it will be much appreciated.
