I went and picked up the rocket quilt this morning, a little bit nervous, a little bit hesitant. What if I hated it? Well, I didn't, I was over the moon (get it?). Chris (the lovely quilter lady) even trimmed it up and stitched all the way round the outside which will make binding it a breeze. Bless her. And I got all the trimmings back too - so I can probably use them for a small cushion, or a seat pad for ginger's chair. Or maybe a laundry bag.
Summersadie's quilt around the world is up and running. I am trying to decide what block to start with, hopefully I can get it done tomorrow if I pull my finger out. I was thinking a cottage block, like the ones over at Nanette's. If I started with a cottage block, then maybe I'd get a whole neighbourhood of houses, maybe some trees or something like that. That's my plan, anyway. Plus it'd look perfect without sashing.
Whilst I'm here, do me a favour and say hello to my friend Brioni . She has just started a blog. We met right here on my blog. Isn't that lovely? She has two amazing quilt tops waiting at the quilters, I saw them today and it was somewhat of an effort for me not to swipe them both. Unfortunately Chris the quilter was watching. Darn it.
