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...

Decision on Festive Mystery Quilt, and Mmmmf mmm mmf

Right - festive mystery quilt - layout 2.  This one.

I think.

Quick!  I could change my mind at any moment, so I must get on with piecing the blocks!

Meanwhile, I  may not have shown the progress of the baby mat for L & F, but I have not been idle - it is taking shape, but given that this is a present for big sister Helen to give to her step-children, I'll not give the game away.

Shame really, as I could have done a bit of expert input on a couple of things - but never fear!

Quilt design is an inexact science, so I had a layout envisaged, but as I started to piece, I saw that what I had done was not What I Had In My Head at all, so made changes to the layout as I suit.

Perhaps the quilt has been telling me what it wants to be!

    1. Thank you Ann Marie - I'm still astounded at how many really different effects you can get from just twizzling a few blocks round!

  2. Sorry I'm late coming to this (horribly behind on lots of things!)

    You definitely chose the right layout :}, hope your other project is progressing well.

    1. S'ok - no one's counting! :-)

      This one nearly all in one piece now, I'll email you about the other, away from prying big sisterly eyes!
