This finish is an adaption of a BOM quilt that I started at the beginning of 2011. When I was doing the appliqué I realised when I was adding I the scrolls (as I did them all at the end) I had positioned one of the squares off centre. I had no more of the black, and not enough fabric to make another block, so what does a girl do.
Put it in a box and sit on it for a couple if years, that's what.
Then a light came on, I don't have to make a 9 block quilt. So I have decided on this 3 block wall hanging, will make a 4 block Lap rug and two, one block cushions. I think that the offending off centre block will be much less noticeable as a cushion
So here is part 1.
The wall hanging.
I may re hang this not so close to the window, I was covering a scratch on the wall made by a chair, but now I look at the photo, It is too close to the window.
So, yes, I spent a great deal of the weekend finishing this, but we also got to babysit over night our three oldest grandsons.
Mitchell, who was having his first ever night away from home. And Leo and Jack, that are quite seasoned at staying at nana Sues house.
Lots of fun activities were arranged, starting with painting. Look at them all hard at work
Even Ziva had a go before daddy took her home, as this sleep over was for big boys only :)
Mmm, yellow paint taste good?
