Stained Blue!

Over the weekend I cracked on with my Stained QAL quilt, and managed to get the top completed.

One advantage of my eldest daughter now being taller than me is that she can hold up quilts!

The fabrics in this quilt are proving to be the hardest to photograph and give an accurate reflection of the colours.

I kept with the skinny sashing, but needed to make the quilt top bigger, so made the border with squares of leftovers and uncut fqs from the bundle (‘It’s a Boy Thing’ by Michael Miller).

Despite spending ages on the maths for the border squares & skinny strips, I still got it wrong, and the corners on the first attempt didn’t look so good.

So I re-worked the corners, a tweek here and a tweek there, and the corners don’t look so bad now.

I’m probably going to have to make a pieced back with the leftovers (groan!) before deciding how to quilt it. 

Although this quilt isn’t needed until September, I want to try and keep up with the others in the QAL group (some smarty pants’ have already finished theirs!).
