I was supposed to block the lace edging but decided not to as I liked the bounce and frilly effect. It's likely the blocking would lose that.
It's a cute extra warm layer for these cold frosty days.
I bought a charm pack at a local quilt show. I love bright colour but when I put it all together I thought it was going to be a horrible clash. Luckily I've managed to settle it down with the mellow border and solid colour edging the blocks.
My local quilting shop came up with this brilliant binding (see above) which picks up the colours from all the blocks.
It looks really cheerful on the coffee table. Finally, I've been looking at this quilt pattern called Gypsy Wife for ages.
So I ordered the pattern and have started making all the different blocks from the scraps that I have in my fabric stash. I think I'm finally getting more accurate! (click on pics below for a slide show of some of the blocks I've made so far).
Happy New Year everyone! Hope it brings you all you desire.
