I hoped to use up a couple of charm packs I had bought of the funky Pezzy print, however on reading the directions again at the start of the month, I realised that I was seriously short of fabric. Never fear, internet shopping to the rescue and I bought some more. It took a few days to arrive, and then we were in business. Apart from the pesky business of migraines and the like getting in the way.
As a slightly unusual touch, I thought I would try the steel grey as background instead of the traditional white. I’m aiming for a much more masculine look for this quilt, and I’m interested to see where it takes me.
I did manage to steal a few hours away and cut and pinned all the half square triangles. I managed to get through chain-stitching them all up before bed called again… which is where they have sat for the past few days. Hopefully I can get them trimmed and start laying the blocks out, especially considering that cheeky Sharon got a head start on this months quilt and she had it finished by April 2nd.
