...first off a very WARM welcome to Annie, who is joining us here at The Cheshire Quilter x You are very welcome to visit any time xx
NOW the warning .. at the end of the post will be a grizzly picture of what I did to my finger yesterday! So feel free to skip off into the warmth of another blog xxx He-He x
The ladies at Congleton Quilt group have sussed out that I am a bit of a sucker for a challenge! You may remember last year Joan gave me 2 projects that she had given up on ... a Christmas hanging, and a Halloween hanging... and I finished them both x Well, Gwen gave me 8 stack-and-wack blocks..
and a bundle of fabric...
My mum LOVES PURPLE , So, I thought I would make her a lap quilt for her birthday... now I KNOW that every machine has a different quarter inch ... BUT .. some ..OK MOST.. of the points were at the ends of the blocks!... NOT EVEN a sixteenth of fabric to make a seam! Gwen had already put 6 of the blocks to-gether ....and discovered this! (I think thats why she gave up and gave them to me!)
NOT to be defeated I set to and started putting them together .... and now Ta-DA....
I have a finished top xx mmmm I also like it ... so MAYBE mum will get it for her birthday!! lol x
NOW THE GRIZZLY BIT........ turn away now if feeling delicate! As I was coming to the end my rotary cutter slippped... You know the rest! It would not stop bleeding for HOURS!!.. as a nurse I knew the last place I wanted to go was the hospital ... so squeezed it into submission myself!! OH! and by the way....... I am pretty sure that at some place in there I said ...oh! dear! ... or words VERY similar to that!..
BE CAREFUL with your cutter x
