No wonder it's taking so long… I'm not sure we really do much quilting! A friend asked me the other day how long we'd been doing it.
"Urm" I say "well I'm sure Kaly was pregnant and her baby's just over a year" at this point I realise how bad this sounds especially knowing what they've done, to make it better I say "…but we do other things too. For valentines we made hearts, for christmas we made sock snowman, for…" …there is no more for, what have we been doing!!!
The cake yesterday was yum however, not a carrot in site just lovely blueberry muffins… and yesterday progress was made. It was a cutting and laying out day for the girls, whilst I made aliens and interfered with Max's layout (Kaly has chosen to lay hers out when I'm not there, hmmm, I wonder why!).
And below a lovely pile of striped squares…
We tried a few layouts and Max was very considerate to my OCD… I only moved a few squares. When we finished I had to remark on how mental it looked… was I taking something when I designed it! Actually the quilt design is fine it's the mental colours of the quilt… girls were you taking something when you ordered the fabrics?
Kaly pretended to do a little work, taking credit of Max's remnants! Oh I love blogging! I can be rude to them without them picking on me, which they really do. They gang up on me, it's really not fair!
…and a quick check of Max's quilt to check the same fabrics don't touch. There wont be a strip of wooden floor between the middle section and the striped squares, instead they butt up, but thank heavens there will be a strip of cream around the outside before we continue with stage 2 of the quilt… operation – we're going to finish this!
I am very proud of my girls for what they've done so far.
What do you think about their quilts so far?
