Well. I don't like the feel the canvas cotton on the sun loungers against my feet, or more specifically against my heels and the soles of feet. No. I am not weird. No. I am not a spoilt brat. Its perfectly normal. Isn't it?
These blocks are wonky cross blocks from my Modern Quilters Ireland Stash Bee two years ago, link here to my tutorial. I asked for a solid background, preferably a strong colour. The cross was to be a geometric pattern, or lines or circles in a contrast colour. I reckoned if I kept them long and narrow for the sun loungers, I could add a few blocks and get two garden quilts.
I was simply dividing the blocks in two equal piles when my daughter and niece suggested hot and cool colours.
And Mrs Hot Hot Hot and Mr Cool were born. (For obvious reasons I couldn't call myself Mrs Hot on the world wide web, though of course I am) All of a sudden the quilts popped.
By prioritising my time, my husband can wait for his!!
Thank you to all the girls in the MQI from 2014 for your blocks. I'm awffy pleased with it on our new decking too, next to my auricular theatre (posh shelving unit for plants).
