I'm switching styles here, onto something a bit different. I finished piecing and basting the Cheddar Cheese and Crackers doll quilt from Loris blog before I came on holiday. I thought it would be a good idea to have a wee hand quilting project to do in found time. There is very little of that happening here, I forgot how little people can be time suckers.
Have a little look at the top right hand corner, see the humility block? The four patch got turned and it wasn't deliberate but I thought I would leave it as a humility thing, like those odd quirky blocks in the antique quilts we sometimes see. You know the story, of how this may have been done deliberately because only God is perfect? As if we humans could make anything that could be perfect.
I admit it, I couldn't stop noticing it so I unpicked it and switched it back to how it should be.
Some hand quilting has been done, enough to see how it's going to look. The grid in the cheddar blocks is a half inch apart and I've tried to follow the same quilting pattern as the original full sized quilt. I like the idea of putting a flash of red with this one and will probably bind it in that colour, again same as the original.
Thanks Lori for sharing such a wonderful project. I love it.
I haven't had time to visit a lot of blogs sorry, but hopefully will catch up when I get home. Tomorrow DD and I are off to visit the patchwork shop we discovered last week to get a fabric fix and while two little ones are in preschool, it's a good chance to have a grown up day. I promise I'll take my camera and share since the lovely owner said I could take photos of anything I wanted.
