November Novelty, the latest block of the month from EQ. Very easy to make, the hardest part was choosing the fabric.

Sentimental Journey

Here are the first three blocks of the Sentimental Journey.

My Jewel quilt

I have come to a stand still, I have run out of black, and have only a small bit of the coloured fabric left, so for the time being my Jewel quilt is hanging on my curtains, I look at it each time I come past, and it still has not come to me what might be next.
I was going to put four borders on, one bright ( a solid colour) and then black and then the original fabric that I used plus another black. The only problem with that is that there is just not enough fabric left. My daughter thinks I should make diamonds all the way round, but I am not convinced. We will see.

My daughter sent me this picture today and I just had to share it. She made it on her mobile phone. There is no way I could cut this one up.

I just had to put this up straight away

It is turning out beautifully, three rows together and I have to show it off, this is the centre of the quilt, it will be over 6 foot square when I am done. I am just taking the blocks as they come, all my previous ones I have picked and moved and then moved again, this time it is come as they are.

32 blocks like this with three coloured bits.

12 blocks like this

So I made 13 blocks like this and there are also four plain black ones. This is a total of 81 blocks, I now have to add the little triangles to four sides of each block, some will get coloured ones and some will be black. I am working on one row of blocks at a time, starting with the middle.

What's happening at my place

A few weeks ago I was going through my stash looking for something, I did not find it, instead I found this.

I remember buying it ages ago, there was about 5 metres in the piece.

So, as I had found it again I took a photo of it and had a play in EQ7.


This is what I came up with, The white section is the coloured bit and the dark is the black.
