This quilt was a scrap monster, it ate up so many pieces from my scrap drawers.
It refused to become rectangular enough, so I will have to add some bits top and bottom; I'm thinking something from my drawer of 3.5" squares will do the trick. But it can wait a while, there are other things I have to work on.
I'm doing a very strange quilting project; it's for a lady whose son was part of the winning crew on a boat in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. He gave her the flag, and she wants it turned into a quilt to snuggle in when she's feeling down. She has cancer, so this quilt will end up being like a hug from her son. The flag is polyester knit, the batting is two layers of flannel and the backing is polyester poplin; it's an awkward combination to work with. It's 105 " x 95", absolutely huge, and she wants the cords left attached, so it's going to be an odd thing to quilt. It's a worthwhile thing though, I hope it brings her a lot of comfort.
My area is all tidied up, ready for the next lot of sewing; what a lovely feeling that is! My word from last year is still a favourite. Onward!!
