Candy Stripes Quilt

10/03/2017 § 4 Comments

There are some really strong retro fabrics in this quilt but they seem to work and balance out with the solid red at the top of the flags combined with the prettiest pastel candy stripe.  I’ve added a solid red binding to frame it all and that’s this evening’s task – to hand stitch the binding all around the back of the quilt.


The 2nd quilt I’ve finished this week is Mini Road Trip – using up the left over patches from last week’s Road Trip Quilt, cut down and combined with more solid blues.   It’s a smidge off finished as there’s an edge and a half of binding to hand-stitch!

I’m hoping to have them both ready for tomorrow’s first market of the season in Alton, Hampshire.

Today is damp, dull and cloudy – I need a sprinkle of sunshine so here’s a photo from yesterday afternoon …

What a difference a day makes!
Enjoy your weekend.

    Oooo! I like that “Bunting” one! — A great way to use up odd scraps and/or use as a SAMPLER of your Fabric Inventory…
    At the very least, quite “SPRINGY”!!
    — I’ve still got a meter of GLACIAL-ICE left on my lawn and -15C daytime highs this week! – [Temps were almost +15 less than a fortnight ago!]
    Anyhoo, GOOD LUCK with your Market!

    That’s very cold – hope you have some good quilts to snuggle beneath! Today’s market was a great success.
