Since mum arrived she's been helping me, encouraging me, and by doing a little at a time we managed to get the last 2 commissions of the year finished on time. Phew! Fortunately mum did the quilting for me on these, as I am just not up to sitting upright for long at all now! So, here we have the Giant Pluses in Powerpop with Sketch background,
and here we have my reduced version of the Made in Cherry star quilt with Amy Butlers Daisy Chain. I've had the fabric, the solid, the binding and the back all set aside for this one for over 2 years, so I'm delighted to have finally made it. Have to say, I rather like this one myself!
And before I forget again, the first thing mum got stuck into for me when she arrived was the centre for my Brit Bee quilt this year. This time, as you may have read here or here, we are mixing it up a little and we have one design which we are all making - the only differences will be how we do the centre stars. This is my centre star, and my specifications for colour scheme are blues, greys, low volume, and lilac purples. Mum did a Stellar job piecing my star (and she will hopefully be teaming up with me all year in case I cant sew with beany right away). Anyway. Its been sent on to the rest of Brit Bee, and I shant see it again for well over a year.... exciting!!!
Blimey that's scary, my life in the next year.... Next time I see this block I hope I'll have a happy, healthy little 1 year old!!!!
