What do you do when you have a pile of quilt tops waiting to be quilted?
Start a new one, of course! I hadn't intended to, but then up popped a Quilt Along with Amy Smart at Diary of a Quilter and I decided to join in.
The pattern is very clear and straightforward. The main challenge was finding enough fabric in my stash of the required size as many of my favourite bits weren't quite big enough. (A couple of these were changed at the last minute.)
I think I've ended up with quite a random, vintage-y selection. Hopefully it will all pull together in the end.
All the strips cut and joined ready to be cut into smaller pieces. I bought a 1/4" accufeed foot for my new Janome machine and it's great for piecing, especially for long strips like this. Next step is to make all the half square triangles. Shouldn't take long once I've figured out which foot to use for an accurate 1/4" seam next to a drawn line.
Not a great photo but the light was all over the place, with a huge thunderstorm just about to pass overhead.
Bye for now
