It's wonderfully sunny at the moment, Wimbledon is on as is the World Cup (best not mention Sunday though), paddling pools are popping up everywhere, and we desperately seek out ice-creams in the afternoons and bbqs on the weekends, and what have I been thinking about… quilts!
It may seem mad to be worried about my daughter getting cold at night when it's currently so warm she's hardly wearing anything to bed, but I started the patch-working for this quilt last year and never quilted it.
The creation of my in-laws quilt took precedence over this quilt as it was (supposedly) a Chrimbo pressie. Due to my woefully slow quilting prowess I thought I'd best get started on this baby if I want really to have it on her bed by winter. I am so very glad it is just a single bed sized quilt.
The quilt pattern is called 'high-flying geese' and I got it from a book called Layer cake, jelly roll and charm quilts. In the book they made it with a mixture of Heather Bailey fabrics, but I thought I'd use a mixture of thirties style fabrics.
Every time I blog about my quilts I always think 'I should have ironed that first' but never remember before I take the photos. Oh well, sorry about that :)
