close up of the blocks - there are 42 in all (126 rectangles)
If you'd like to make this quilt, there is a fabulous tutorial here. It is very well written and so easy to follow (even for a mathmatically challenged person like me!) I'll let you in on a secret - Lydia had to work out the measurements for me (I'm that bad at maths). In the tutorial Florence used 12 fabrics but I only had 6 - it would make for easier laying out the more you have.
Provided my sister-in-law likes it, it will be winging it's way to Australia soon. They are expecting a little girl after having 3 boys and we are so delighted for them.
Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for visiting!
Ps. I should have said it was very quick to make - just 2 days!
In my haste to make it though, I sat up very late on Monday night (nearly cross-eyed) completing the top, and when I got up on Tuesday morning (5 hours later)
- oh my word -
it was like a dogs dinner, not a straight line to be seen :( ....so Mum and I ripped out all the blocks and I started again. I finished it last night but I've learnt my lesson...I won't be sewing late at night again!
