Just in time!
This photo is to give it some context. When I did a workshop with Jan Hassard, making her curved log cabins, I didn't have a 1/4" inch foot for the machine that I was using. This meant that when I got home I could either 1) carry on using this machine or 2) sacrifice this first strip and make the rest of the strips that I'd cut out into a slightly smaller quilt. As you can guess, I returned to my beloved Bernina and left this first strip hanging forlornly on the wall for some considerable time.
You can see the quilt that I made hanging on the living room wall in this photo.
I hope that a little boy will like this at some point - and I liked having the practise for some long feathers on a couple of the plain strips - the rest of the quilt was stippled - always best to put plenty of quilting on a pieced quilt that is being made for a child, I find!
I hope that you are enjoying some summer sewing time too.
