.......but most definitely not of the honking kind.
I have finally started my very first Quilt A-Long....although in truth, I should probably call it an 'Almost' Quilt A-Long as I am quite a few weeks behind everyone else.....however better late than never....hummm I think I said that about my Farmers Wife Quilt...oh well!
The first task was to cut up all your fabric for the quilt top. I'm making the 3 x3 block which will finish up 54" square....a perfect lap quilt to live on the sofa in my kitchen. I'm using prints from the Aunt Grace Miniatures collection and for the background a vintage cotton sheet. This is the first time I have ever cut up all my fabric for a quilting project in one go, I'm normally a cut as you go girl! There was however something very satisfying I must say, once I had my stacks of little squares all piled up.
It was then time to get stitching. The best part of participating in this QAL is to learn new skills and straight away I have learnt how to make No Waste Flying Geese. Obviously... I am already dreaming up projects where I can use these again........ At this point I must say a huge thank you to Melissa who is running the QAL and so generously sharing her knowledge!
After a couple of hours I ended up with 72 little blocks......
The next task is Half Square Triangles AND I get to do some colouring....does it get any better than that!!
