I have a finish! No I don't. I believe a flimsy (unquilted, unbasted top) can be a finish, so can a nearly finish be a finish? I may have said this before.
My Houndtooth quilt is pieced in strips. That's 10 blocks across by 10 strips deep. Now I "just" have to trim the strips and piece them together. Then iron it to death. Then baste it. Then quilt it.
I love this. I am so delighted with it. It matches my kitchen floor so well, I might just use it as a mat and not a quilt after all!
I am delighted to see all the purple arrows face in the right direction. Rather pleased with that. And rather pleased that the purples didn't get muddled up en route.
There was a lot of labelling and bagging went on here. And checking and rechecking. So much so, that I was surprised when I was a shale colourway block short in the last row. I had been methodical about these. The extra block sewed onto the penultimate strip explains why I was one short!
Look at the last strip. The whole way to the very end of the quilt, and the very last blocks are the wrong way round.
Maybe they should be my Amish blocks. Apparently the Amish quilters always made/make a deliberate mistake because only God can reach perfection. It is an insult to God to imitate him. I think my daughter would prefer the mistake corrected. Oh the perfect pain and irony, to sew all these blocks together and make a mistake in the final two blocks!!!
The houndtooth pattern is from Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine and is from a design by Belfast's very own Judith of Justjudedesigns. The fabric are all kona solids, I will list them next time. Crazy Mom Quilts who hosts the link up for finished quilts is taking August off from blogging, so that gives me a month to finish. Ha Ha.
