Birthday Quilt Update
My little brother's big birthday quilt top is finally pieced. The Layers of Charm pattern from the Fat quarter Shop is perfect for time-constrained gifts and I love how it looks in these black, grey and low volume prints. Not too fussy for a bloke. That cheeky wee orange punch makes me smile too. It's actually a sketch blender but it does look solid here and not as pretty as in real life.
Anyway, now that piecing is complete I have decided that this quilt should be shipped off for a little Trudification. Honestly, this is a bit of a relief because it means a) my brother will get a much nicer quilt for his big day and b) there's a chance he will actually get it on his big day!!
So, next time you see this lovely it will have been through the skilled hands of a master quilter - sounds better than 'pimped by Trudi', doesn't it?
