Two more small finishes
Just a couple of extras cut from stash, plus a central block of the hen fabric that appears in quite a few of my scrap quilts!
I wasn't sure what binding to use. I wondered about something in a soft colour to complement the sashing / border (which reminds me of an old fashioned eiderdown) but decided instead to pick up on the greens that appear in some of the blocks with a lime green spotty binding. Not the perfect green, but the best that I had in my stash!
Of course, if I managed to sew the right pieces to the pattern it might be quicker - yesterday I sewed eight pieces with the wrong fabrics (and unpicked them all, despite the short stitch length because of it being foundation piecing). This is on top of the unpicking that I've done because I've failed to place the pieces well enough (those tricky triangles).
It's a beautiful block, I just hope that I can do it justice - eventually!
I need to take 'final shots' of it, but I enjoyed quilting and finishing it last week.
On to other new projects now!
