It's been a couple of weeks or so since I had something to post. Been working on a couple of things that are now close to completion.
The first is a 'broken dishes' pattern (I presume like most other traditional blocks it has other names too), looks more like an hour glass or egg timer to me, but maybe people don't use those any more.
The simple two colours seem to work well and the narrow border gives it a bit of a lift. That will be the binding too, once I've completed the quilting vertically as well as the current horizontal. The wavy line was fun and easy and gives the quilt a bit of movement too.
I thought it would be versatile enough and suitable for a new niece that has just joined the family. Looking forward to seeing a 2 week old shortly.
Since I thought it would be softer as a blanket I backed it with a fleecy, rather than the usual wadding and backing. The quilting still worked fine and it's lovely and soft.
Until next time,
