Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Christmas Quiltalong July - Pt2

Ok - so I have had some technical problems here, which has been VERY IRRITATING INDEED.

After I'd got all the routine stuff out the way yesterday morning, I spent a happy hour or so laying the blocks of QuiltSue's Festive Mystery Quilt out various different designs and taking pics of each on my camera, which I then wanted to put on the screen so I could compare and see which I wanted to go with.

But there was a problem taking the pics from the camera onto the computer which I couldn't seem to solve whatever I did.  I gave up before I chucked the damn computer through the damn window and stamped off to do other stuff.  What a day for a technical glitch - I could see you all having fun with Lynn (on the phone screen), baking and making and having a lovely time but couldn't join in.  Boo boo boo!

I was so cross that I didn't even look at the computer until late afternoon today (actually, the weather was so good for once that I was quite busy doing other stuff) but magically the glitch seems to have resolved itself, and I can make my final layout choice.

Not that I've had time to actually do much sewing, but I'm confident it will fly together now the difficult decision making is done!

I think that I'd better put a few blocks together to set in concrete my design choice before scrutinising properly how you all got on yesterday - from what I've seen so far, I just know I'll see other ways to lay the blocks out which I'll love too, and I've had quite enough dithering and inaction for one weekend! 


  1. Your layout is great! Love your quilt.

  2. So glad you got the glitch taken care of Hazel. I hear your frustration! Your layout look great Hazel. You've done a wonderful job.

  3. Love your layout!I think the pieced borders add so much! Yes, there is always fun the day of the Christmas quiltalong, but sometimes some of us don't get much done...meaning me! Could be a Christmas Quiltalong week coming up! So glad the techie problems seem to have resolved themselves.

  4. great layout it looks perfect!

  5. I thought you'd been quiet! That's a lovely layout you've settled on. It's so much fun seeing everyone's quilt coming together now.
