This was my haul from the sale.
This was a view of some of the quilts there
Today was an equally grim day, drizzly and grey, so perfect weather for staying in and sewing. I belong to the Contemporary Quilt group in the Quilters' Guild and each January have a journal quilt challenge, but as I only joined middle of last year I wasn't eligible to join the challenge. I have a few ideas in mind but this little quilt lent itself to a technique that I did last year with the rainbow quilt I made last September.
This is what the back looks like covered up
So at 8" X 10" it was a quilt made in a day from start to finish. I've got a few ideas for other journal quilts for forthcoming months so I'm looking forward to this challenge.
Blunder of the day. I made a wonky block from a smaller one made last year. Trimmed to 12.5", and layered with slightly larger wadding and backing. All well and good, but after quilting on my machine the whole lot shifted. Oh dear. Slithers of trimmed off fabric where them added to bring the block back to size. You'd never notice
