For the last 2 days I've been watching the cricket test between Australia and South Africa. While I've been doing that I've been stitching and managed to finish my Nice People Nice Things quilt.
This is the front of the quilt.
The rows are sewn together in the same way as the blocks. The outside borders are just folded over to the front and sewn under as for the other sashings.
The hand stitching of the sashings really didn't take very long at all. I'm glad I did it that way.
This is the back of the quilt. As you can see, I did 5 rows of 5 blocks which makes a nice lap quilt.
The quilt-as-you-go method made the finishing up really quick and easy.
I'm pleased with the way it turned out and to think that I made it all from fabric in my stash!
Now that I've finished this project, I'm going to focus on finishing the Small Pleasures quilt from Natalie Bird. That's another project just perfect for stitching while watching cricket and tennis (Australian Open is just around the corner).
We had a really nice Christmas Day - ended up playing not one but two games of Risk and one game of Monopoly (I won Monopoly but was demolished in Risk). We all ate too much and are still paying for it now. Will have to swim extra hard this week! Robin bought me an Ipod so I've been having fun downloading lots of songs and music videos. Hope your day was just as much fun.
Until next time
