My sister's Christmas present requests are challenging to say the least. After taking up the wool last year she decided that she would very much like a woolly granny square throw to go on her conservatory sofa....I obliged and needless to say it took a while!! I'll blog the Christmas blanket another time but there's a little sneak peek below
...... A Quilt......... more specifically....... A Cath Kidston Quilt......oh and could I make it a double!!!
The past two months has been spent scouring ebay for patchwork pieces, remnants and yardage. Its going to be a patchwork quilt of a random design.
This sneak peek is possible as I gave her the option of some design input...completely random or a bit of a pattern? Luckily she opted for random so I don't have to embark on a mammoth colour jigsaw! Luckily during the consultation (very technologically done via text) she downgraded the size to that of a sofa throw. Want to see what I've achieved so far.....
After a lot of cutting I have gained a pile of squares!
Arranging them at random took a fair while but it was enjoyable and fun!
Now all that is left is an awful lot of sewing!!!
