Here we are again on the best day of the week when we all catch up with our blogging friends all around the world....if you don't know what I'm talking about what cave have you been living in for what seems like for ever? Pop over to Julia's at the Stamping Ground to find out more and to join in the fun.
My desks today involve quilt making. I have had a break from the demand of sewing for my customers for a few days and as my head was full of cold bugs I needed what I call a bit of mindless sewing to keep me busy without great demands being put on my brainpower so I decided to make a couple of eye spy quilts.
I got out my boxes of fabrics and carefully cut out 108 4" squares....enough for 2 quilts. Each square is different to the next so all 54 has something different to search for and talk about.
I then sorted out enough fabric to make the borders for each quilt and had sufficient wadding but didn't have enough fabric for the backing pieces so ordered some on line from the company I use.
My name is Annie and I'm a fabricolic....
While shopping in Aldi's on Saturday morning they had fat quarter bundles in stock again and they are always far too good to miss out on so they fell into my trolley and when we got home from shopping my parcel of plain cotton fabrics I use for backing my quilts had arrived too....a girl can never have too much fabric ....can she?
As you can see I've already put some of the plain backing fabric to good use as I've now completed my two quilts....but you may notice the fat quarters are stacked on the top of the photos as I may need to stroke those just a little more before I cut into them. 😁😁😁😁
That's all from me for this week....I wonder what I will have on my desk next week to share with you? I will do my best to get round as many of my visitors that I can and until then I hope you all have happy, healthy and creative times during the week.
