I’m guessing that if you ‘live’ in the world of quilts and fabric the fact can’t have passed you by that Quilt Market is happening right now and therefore it’s time for Bloggers Quilt Festival.
It took me a little while to decide what to enter, I like to show you all something new rather than enter one you’ve seen before, so I’ve decided to reveal my And Sew On BOM wall hanging:
I started this on the 31st December last year (Australia are ahead of the UK so it was already January there!), I kept to schedule and made a block each month. If you want to read my post on each block just select the And Sew On BOM category on the right hand side.
If you do read the other posts you might notice that I had an issue with this block:
The top left piece of fabric is whiter than the other background pieces, I pulled them from my scrap box thinking they were the same, it really irritated me so before I stitched all the blocks together I took out that piece and replaced it with the same fabric as the other whites – it made me feel much better!
I backed the quilt with a vintage sheet from my collection and added a couple of corners to aid hanging (currently there is a piece of dowel rod in there and it hangs on a picture hook in my sewing space).
I guess I should add a label too!
