After much internal discussion a few days ago (see here for details), I have decided to make this my February ALYOF project:
And it will have a pieced backing using these:
The backing will just be simple different sized rectangular blocks of the light brown fabric, bordered by the coloured strips, all of which fabric comes from my stash. (Big tick for me! 🙂 ) I might also do a little bit of applique on some of the larger blocks, just to break up the monotony of the brown – it all depends on time available, given that February is a short month 🙂 Luckily we have a holiday today, being Waitangi/New Zealand Day – not that I’ve been doing any quilting so far, mind you, having had my nose stuck in a good book all day!
A real change in the weather overnight – it was lovely to step outside yesterday evening and smell the fresh rain, as we’ve had a very dry spell lately, but it’s brought with it a real drop in temperature. I’m just hoping it’s going to perk up again in time for the Cricket World Cup, which starts a week tomorrow – can’t wait! 🙂
