Work in Progress

After two months of poem-a-day challenges, I am reverting to quilting while the creative juices re-generate.  I started making “something, I don’t know what” with three lovely fat quarters.  Like Topsy, it just growed.  WIP central blockThe central block was too big for a table mat, and too small for a lap rug, so I decided to turn it into a medallion quilt by adding borders.WIP red medallion quilt

I didn’t have any quilt batting, so I pulled a “freebie” fleece quilt out of the bathroom cupboard, layered the top with it and am now hand quilting.  Because the middle layer is puffy, I’ve kept the quilting quite sparse

and it is keeping me warm like an eiderdown as I quilt.

    You are so clever.
    that is really lovely.
    I wonder if I shall ever try my hand at that sort of thing?
    I have my doubts.
