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!).
