Scrap Attack - Finished

Finished the scrap QAYG (quilt as you go) quilt.I love how quickly these go together once you have enough blocks made. Though they do get a little unwieldy towards the end.

I chose to use a plane cream fabric for the sashing and binding, and the seam ripper is out. I'd stitched that row together the wrong way round. 

Its turned out to be quite a big quilt and in fact it measures approximately 80" x 64" which is much larger than I intended to make when I set out on the project, as I was thinking of making a lap quilt!

I love how the back turned out too.

Now it's finished I just need to get it to the local Project Linus rep for re-homing.

April UFO - Ready to Quilt

All tacked and ready to quilt. 

The quilting is now well underway and I've thought of a name for it. I do like to give all my quilts names. It's called Ring a Ring o' Roses.

Still making April's UFO...

Oh dear I knew this one was going to take time.
I've unpicked and remade the centre with the correct blocks, so that's all good now.
The border blocks are sewn together and have been stitched onto the quilt.
I've made the pieced back, my favorite way to back quilts at the moment!
Cut the wadding to size.
Time to layer it up.

Although its not yet finished, and its now the 7th May, I'm reasonably happy with the progress. It is after all  much further on than it has been for the last several years!
