Since I posted last, I actually managed to make some good progress on my Hopscotch quilt (any ideas for names for this one? I've decided my quilts deserve better names that the obvious descriptive ones I come up with. And considering I even struggled to name my babies, I have no hope on coming up with good names for quilts...)
I apologise for the awful photos - one of my kids has been trying to poke their fingers in my camera shutter which has caused havoc with it's focus and ability to photograph. On top of that the light here has been terrible (plus this is all stuck on my design wall so I can't move it to better light. So you'll have to bear with me :o)) So it grew from this:
And with a few more blocks and a bit of swapping around it now looks like this:
Roughly 1/3 done (well 23 blocks done of 77, so close enough). You can see how it's trying to migrate off the design wall - my solution is to tape a piece of batting to the door next to it, and use that as a dodgy design wall extension. I'm really scared about putting the blocks together - I am pretty sure my points are going to be a nightmare.
I've also been working on finally putting together my little guy's quilt - he helped me design and choose fabrics for it months ago, and I keep putting him off which I feel terrible about. But he keeps coming into my sewing room and declaring how awesome the Hopscotch quilt is and how since I haven't made him a quilt yet, it will have to be his (I love 7 year old common sense!) So I've promised I will make his first before I finish Hopscotch :o) No photos yet, but they will be coming (along with a tutorial I hope!)
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
