Hard part - done!

I've really surprised myself by getting this all cut and pieced in a couple of days! I did get the kids involved and they counted how many squares or triangles I had cut out in each colour. Really made more of a mess than anything - but it kept them occupied so I could sew!! I may have learnt a lesson about ironing the fabrics FIRST before I cut them. The pink and white spot for the stitchery section isn't so straight but I didn't notice it until I actually ironed it when it was sewn. OOPS! It's okay, I'm sure I can even it up later if need be. I was going to trace it straight away - but I think I'll leave it until I have my threads so it's not sitting there - the soluble pen I use tends to fade a little when it just sits there.

I can actually see progress!!

How are you going with yours? I know there's a few people waiting for fabric or threads as well.


  1. Congratulations!! Well done!! Looks great! Really can't notice the dots not being straight - honest!
    Happy stitching, P

  2. I'm so jealous!! *grin*. You've done a beautiful job. GO GIRL!!!!

  3. see you have been busy.......hope the threads arrive very soon.......

  4. Thanks everyone.... It's sad just seeing it sitting there... !! Can't wait to get into the stitching. But in the mean time I do have a lap quilt I can border and start to hand quilt! It's all good!
