So last weekend I got back from my annual trip to go quilting up at Armidale. Unfortunately I don't have a lot to show for my time (except maybe a renewed interest in my craft and children who appreciate me a bit more!) My main project that I took was a flannel quilt that was a quilt that was not co-operating! It was made from a pattern that had been written for regular quilting cottons, but in the kit it had a note saying "Since flannel fabric stretches more, we suggest using interfacing". But unfortunately with these limited instructions I was at a bit of a loss exactly how to do that!!
I did however complete a pillowcase for a little man who likes Ninjas, Spiderman, cats and giraffes...
I also had a very cute cat panel that I sliced up, bordered with a bali pop I had in the cupboard, to end up with blocks like this..(this may be my favourite as it reminds me of my ginger cat, Louie)
So I am currently auditioning sashing fabrics...(feel free to vote!)
And so that I could justify my epic tv watching during the Commonwealth Games, I have been knitting again. I have been receiving a Winter Club from Jellywares and got a lovely skein of Malabrigo wool. So after seeing this pattern, I got knitting, and this is what I ended up with.
Anyway, hope you're having a good week!
