Small pieces

I had a major breakthrough on my jelly roll quilt this weekend. It's the square dance quilt form Pam and Nicky Lintotts Two from one jelly roll book.
I wrote about this for my first WIP Wednesday post. At that point I was still slogging my way though putting together the little nine patches.

I got these finished the previous weekend so this weekend was spent putting them all together, there are 146 of the little blighters they are 3 inches square. Laying out was fun, but I daren't breath when they were on my very flimsy design wall (basically a bit of flannel hanging from a curtain pole)

I managed to get one corner sewn together, I am usually very poor at working with small pieces, they annoy me and require far more attention to detail than I can usually muster, but this time I was more patient and am pretty chuffed with progress so far.

so all in all a very productive weekend am looking forward to finishing this one

  4. It looks really lovely, will be gorgeous when you have finished and definitely worth all that effort.

    Did you know you were a no-reply blogger by the way?

    1. Thank you so much for your comment but also telling me I was a no reply blogger! I thought I had made my email available, but obviously not, or the evil google overlords changed it back ... I have set it right now, thanks again
