I think MIL should like this birthday quilt. I enjoyed trying out different blocks for this sampler. Though I think that now between this quilt and my hipBees sampler (yet to be finished) I have well and truly scratched my sampler itch.
I spent an "interesting" afternoon at the weekend trying to quilt in a spiral with a broken walking foot and a guide arm that I had to hold down with one finger. I think I will have to save my pennies for a new walking foot very soon, not sure I could go through that again!! But, perseverance paid off and actually it doesn't look too bad, especially now that it's been crinkled in the dryer.
Back soon to show you a few little bits and bobs I've been playing with.
