Nothing for days, and then three in one day??


I know, I know.. but I am finally on the mend, and thought I'd share a pic of some blocks I am working on.. It is a free BOM through "Claudia's Quilt Shop" (link to it on the left there.. I am doing it in the civil war repros, and I have always wanted to do a red quilt, dunno how it will turn out, but so far so good..

Of course, whilst I was laying it out the bastard darling puss puss had to come and roll in the middle of it, but all was saved and I had Miss Lara quickly take a pic..

Now me being me, I stuffed up.. DOH DOH DOUBLE DOH!! I made TOO many of a couple of the blocks, I mean, I have so much time to spare, I make 5 extra blocks.. so I thought I'll keep making an extra one here and there, and hopefully I'll have enough for a couple of cushions to match.. If the Beast (aka the Monster who lives here who is also known as 'ginger jesus' cause of his long red hair) likes it, he can have it.. somehow I think I'll be getting a new quilt! LOL he asked me to make him a black quilt.. just black, maybe with some skating stuff on it??? I said um no..

Your quilt is beautiful! I love the red. Maybe you could make some throw pillows with those extra blocks. They are truly wonderful.

Lovely lovely quilt.

But I had to laught at the black quilt thing - I would have loved a black quilt when I was a teenager. All my clothes were black, and my hair, and my make up ... I even had black pyjamas!

Funny how fashions come round again :-)

Love this quilt Lissa, and love the fabrics you've used. Keep posting photos of it.
My DS wanted a red and black drunkard's path quilt. I'll make it for him one day as an exercise in curved piecing.

Reds and creamy tans have to be my favourite combination. Look forward to seeing this quilt finished.
