Hello, hello :)
A quilt. The quilt. The first quilt I ever quilted. I'm sure, in years to come, this blog post will be looked at by myself as some kind of 'whoa, that really sucked!' moment, or perhaps a 'I seriously gave that away? But it's not perfect! What was I thinking?' moment.
Either way, it's done, washed on hot and shrunk a little in the drier for some crinkly goodness, and I'm going to show it to you.
The middle panel, right and left sides, and backing are all upcycled from a 'quilt' (by which I mean, some thick polyester ripped batting in the middle, the only quilting stitched in a big rectangle near the edge) I found at our church's Market Day (kindof like a fair) last year.The rest of the fabrics are yellows from stash.
Have a look at the quilting. See how brave I am for posting these pics?
And the backing. A strategically placed photo to not show too much of the pulls in the fabric.
And hello? I have something delicious to introduce to you - my latest purchases from Red Riding Hood Yarns - 'Walk in the Woods' in sock yarn and 'Zeus' in laceweight (eek!).
These colours are amazing (truer in this photo though)- aren't you glad I introduced you?
