here, I decided to make my own version in grey, blue and pink for DD1's 'Brown Owl' who has been very patient and understanding over the years. Anne was kind enough not only to say that I could copy her idea (thanks Anne!) but also to give me tips on construction which made this a nice fast construction job.
It was a 'deadline quilt' as DD1 will move up from Brownies to Guides by leaping over the toadstool on Thursday night.
I love the 'compass pointing' that the triangles do if you rotate the blocks. I'm less certain about the placement of my silhouettes on the quilt, but wanted to put each of them on a dark space so that they showed up. If I was making this again I'd have fused a dark fabric under the silhouette so that I could put them over block joins..... another learning experience!
I hope that Dodo likes the quilt. I'm pleased to say that the 'commissioning mother' was very pleased with last week's camera cushion cover.
Just a couple more sewing items to do (replacing elastic in slippers in time for DD2 to take them on a school residential trip tomorrow is top of the list - and I can hardly think of anything more tedious, to be honest! At least that should be a relatively quick job!) and then I'll get back to my neglected college work (and perhaps a bit on Love Entwined, which made a tiny bit of progress this week, unphotographed though.
