Look what I did yesterday and why there isn't really a blog post today

Hello Dear Reader,


Most of my days have a rhythm to them and Sundays are no different, I usually have all the house work done and mostly garden, sew, wash the towels and bed sheets, watch Landline and Gardening Australia and spend some time typing up some bones of blogposts on a Sunday. Well, instead of that, yesterday I watered the garden, went to the markets to pick up some berries and cinnamon, did a sort out of my little stash of quilting fabrics and then spent the rest of the day sewing.


This unfinished project has been sitting looking at me for a very long time, nearly 3 years, the problem was, I had run out of the background fabric and was unsure how to continue, well while I was sorting out my stash I found I had quite a lot of the grey zigzag fabric left (it's the same one I used as the "lids" of the "Jars" and used that. So instead of the "Quart Jars" popping off the quilt, they look like they are on a stand. The original idea was to use a dark background so the "jars" really stood out.


The design is from Jenny of "The Missouri Star Quilt Company" and is called "Eye Spy" I really loved the idea of it. I will finish the quilt with another large boarder, using the same fabric for the backing and binding, that is when I get a chance to go out to Spotlight and buy it. I am thinking of a pale pink polkadot. What would you use?

So concludes my non blogpost for today.

Have a lovely day

  3. Beautiful quilt, if for a girl the pink polka dots would look good, if for a boy or a neutral child quilt, a blue/green/teal would look great too. Love how you spent your Sunday. Take care, Guida.
