The boat quilt for my grandson is finished. This quilt will be for his cot.
It is quilted simply with stitch-in-the-ditch around each boat and a wave shape on each alternate block.
I used a fabric with all over boats for the backing and I even found a preprinted label with a boat.
All soft and crinkly after a wash.
This months CCCQ block looked deceptively simple....
Block 25, Sarah Stubbs' block.
All those curves took a while to stitch.
I'm looking forward to making Block 26 this month; Love the pattern of this one!
I just managed to complete my Noah and Matilda blocks on the last day of October! There were only 3 blocks this month and the first 2 didn't take me too long.
I procrastinated over the third block! lol
Not perfect, but done.
Dawn has posted photos of her blocks for November. I'm looking forward to making these. The 3rd one looks a bit of a challenge.....but I love a challenge!! :)
Mid month also brought my next installment of Cotton and Steel fabrics.
(only 11 fabrics here. Somehow I left one out after admiring them all!)
I've started cutting out hexies from some of these fabrics. I need about 100, so a little way to go yet. These are 2 1/4 inches. The top and bottom fabrics in the left column are Maze and Vale fabrics. I think they make perfect partners for Cotton and Steel.
Yesterday we had a visit from a dear friend who has just come back from several weeks overseas. She brought back these books she found in a small town in Sussex, England.
Perfect reading for a cold and damp Sunday. Looks like there is lots of inspiration behind those covers. :)
Have a great Sunday, everyone! :)
