This week has been a lovely blip in the reality of our routine, which is why I've been able to sneak off so much and get stitchy! So, just before the craziness kicks in again let me show you this afternoon's progress on the two quilts I've been working on for Bee Blessed.
First up is the jelly roll quilt -
It's had a double border added and is appealing to me much more than it did previously. I made the outer border pieced with leftovers from the squares made for the main blocks - I think it adds a wee bit of interest to the very plain stone coloured border. I've never pieced a border like this and now I'm feeling like one of the cool people 'cos I did it and it worked! (I'm very sad, I know.)
And then this charm pack lovely -
I really do love this quilt top - it's probably the colours that really make it for me. Maybe this would make a good quilt to donate to a male Bee Blessed recipient.
Aaaahhh. (Sound of a stitchily satisfied me.)
