Finally finished….

Today I completed the final block in The Homespun Magazine Breast of Friends BOM.

The original block was by Natalie Bird and although it was lovely, and I’m sure it was well suited to the set I just didn’t like it, can’t really explain why. I decided to change the block to another block by Natalie Bird from her book The Gift of Friendship. I kept it to the size of the original block so it will work out ok at the ‘putting together’ stage.

I have also added the final borders to my second Double Irish Chain Quilt. I started this one at my annual retreat on the first weekend in November. I was struggling to add the borders because it necessitated me getting down on the floor to measure and pin the borders, and it gave me a really good excuse to procrastinate! So I did!

Until yesterday that is… I was clearing up my cutting table of all the ‘stuff’ that ends up there to be dealt with ‘later’ and saw that my basket of WIP’s was going to topple over if I didn’t get some finished. So that’s what I did yesterday, between watching the cricket, snoozing, reading and the all popular eating!

So good to see it done!


Now to tackle something else from the WIP basket.

Thanks for visiting,
