I didn't forget about this. I just didn't manage to get it done before the linky party finished!
For Everything Else, There's Mastercard
But it looks lovely, doesn't it? Still deciding if it needs a contrast colour to ease the richness of those golds and purples. Maybe the binding?
I finally found a binding! Timeless Treasures' Legacy range - which, incidentally, is a gorgeous 'brocade' range - had all the colours I needed in the right shades for the quilt.
And so we bind! If I put some back into it, I can get it done and spread on their bed for Sunday night when they get home from a long weekend at Ayers Rock! Maybe. :)
Cutting has begun, although I haven't sewn anything together yet. I just hope there's enough to make a decent-sized quilt out of it!
Lumiere de Noel
I've had the fabric for at least four years, and still haven't done anything with it. On Saturday, at quilting group, I bit the bullet, decided that I'd make a mess of HSTs out of it, and use the cream and beige backgrounds and the scarlet accents to develop structure and design in the quilt when I laid it all out.
They need ironing and sewing together.
The Usual Suspects
1. New York Beauty
2. Go Back To The Jungle, Turn The quilt Around - binding
3. Disappearing Harvest - binding
And probably several other things I've forgotten about.
I have a long weekend in Australia (Queen's Birthday weekend) so I will be using some of that to go check out the linky party at Freshly Pieced!
