Over half term in Feb, the kidlet and I made our usual trip up to see the Parentals and In-laws for the week. I had deprived them of seeing him for nearly seven weeks and so they were desperate to babysit and I got to sew. Win-win!!
|46 prints from all of the Sun Print collections|
I swapped between projects all week, but my favourite start was my Alison Glass Sun print quilt. I have been collecting the prints for this for the last 6 months as I wanted a quilt with all of them in (well all except the white on white ones - they went into my low volume stash).
Since I was at the In-laws, I bought the Sissix Isosceles triangle die and nicked my MIL's Big shot. The two big lessons I learnt were: 1. triangles cut this way waste a lot of fabric 2. 4.5" triangles take a fuffing age to lay out!
Still it was worth it! I even did a skill swap with Charlotte on our retreat, where I quilted her scrappy trip-along while she sewed half my triangles for me.
I am just waiting for the border and backing fabric to arrive from Annie and I can get on and finish it. This quilt is definitely for me, me, me!
