I've finished another block from my Nice People Nice Things quilt. This one is called Friends.
I stitched the words in mauve (3041 - one of my favourite colours) and stitched the 'friends' in different colours. I think I used all the threads that I had set aside for this quilt.
For the back of the block, I stitched in 3041 and managed to find enough of the red fabric to use it for the whole border.
The other day I mentioned that I intended to finish this quilt this year. Well, I must be in a bit of a time warp at present, because I only just realised that the end of the year is only about 2 weeks away! Based on that new information I have to revise my estimate and say that I'm aiming to finish it early next year!
Where has the year gone?
I think I have a better chance of finishing it then but still will not commit to a definite date.
I was having coffee with a friend yesterday and she told me about a magazine she reads regularly - Quilting Arts - and how inspirational it is. I had seen it in the newsagent but tended to overlook it, but yesterday I bought a copy and was glad I did. It's not your usual quilting magazine filled with patterns, but is geared more towards 'art' quilts. I have never really been attracted by arts quilts, but was really impressed by the creativity of the techniques and samples shown in the magazine. I will defintely not overlook it any more. Thanks Jane.
Until next time
