This is the one done with Jennie Rayment on the create and craft tv channel. One of the blocks the celtic knot has been omitted and replaced with a court house steps block as I could not do the fiddly bias for the knot. The binding has been made form the left over fabrics in the blocks. Unfortunately it was a bit windy when I took this photo. it is 43" square
This is the back, as you can see I have quilted each block to suit the block pattern
My second quilt has had a name change, when we were shown at the Yorkshire MQG how to make this quilt it was called a vomit quilt! I think the name comes form Katy Jones of I`m a gingermonkey fame but have since found it n a book and it is called steps to the altar which is a much nicer name. Not sure if I have quilted it enough, will maybe have to add some more but living with it as it is for now. It is a little smaller than it should be as I pieced all the blocks on my elna little machine which is light enough to take to class (weather permitting) it does not have a quarter inch foot so the seams were a bit bigger but as I continued to make all the blocks with the same seam allowance it worked out okay. It measures 41`" by 55"
the photo was taken indoors as it was raining outside.
Two other little things done this last week, the hexie block for the BOM challenge this month was candy corn which was new to me and the bee blessed charity block or rather a double block for this month too.
these blocks were made as 2 strip blocks then cut in half diagonally and swapped around, the strips were assorted sizes, think I might make a scrappy quilt like thus when I have a bag enough supply of scraps. It had arrived safely in Ireland where a group of ladies meet and put all the blocks together and make into quilts.
I wonder if anyone else is having problems leaving comments on some blogs. The blogs I follow that have a comment box that opens in a separate window I have been unable to comment on as the window will not open, the same goes if I try to pin form these blogs the pinterest window will not open, this does not happen with the blogs that the comments open up below the blog if you know what I mean. if anyone can throw some light on this problem I would be very grateful and if you are wondering why I have not commented you now know. This is not happening all the time sometimes it will work for a couple of blogs modern technology sometimes it is way above my head.
