LAST NIGHT WAS ....

....quilt group meeting in Sandbach, this was the night of the chopkey demonstration..


all the ladies made one xx makes me so happy when folks have a go xx .. makes all the preparation worth while xx

I took an item with me to Show-and-tell x Do you remember I gave you a sneaky peek of what I was working on..


WELL.. it is the first 6 blocks of the Classic-Meets-Modern  block of the month organised by Erin .. ( www.sewathomemummy.com ) ..


.....and decided that if we were mixing things up and putting a modern spin on them .... I would NOT make a quilt ..OR .. a conventional wall hanging .. BUT I would make a ..


BANNER x I used a cheap fabric .. bought at the Malvern show .. for the back piece..

 

the two pieces are only connected at the top block ... I hand quilted and embellished the top piece..

 

I have to tell you I had SUCH fun with this .... I will have to think how I can mix up the next 6 months worth of blocks xx

When I opened my front door at 07.30 this morning THIS..


is what greeted me!! I thought they were coming through the door! They are going to change my gas meter to-day .. hope they know HOW!!!! lol

You always make me laugh and I needed one today with that truck out front of your door. I love the banner and the chop key. I love that you get your projects done. I am off to start finishing my projects - you have inspired me.

(Blooming iPad thinks it knows better). I'd meant to say...
Did you have to use the digger to get out of the house? I like the chop key blocks, might have to have a go at that.

Were you allowed out? Or were you expected to stay put until they finished their digging?

Chopkey looks interesting and different..
