When the Mister is away on a motorbike trip I get plenty of uninterrupted sewing time, in fact the only interruption is when Cody decides that he is hungry and comes to tell me that it is dinnertime :)
I've had these blocks for quite some time they were from a block swap I took part in and I had set them aside for when I had more time to put them together and that time was this weekend.
Rather than fuss about trying to get matching seams I added a fabric strip to the top of two of the block rows, another fabric strip to the bottom and then stitched them together, I rather like the result. Conveniently I had quite a few strips of the spotted fabric stashed away with the blocks so used them for the side borders/strips.
I'm a bit over large quilts (they are a PITA to baste and quilt) so
decided to make two smaller quilts but once finished I thought that
rather than having to quilt two quilts, I would use one for the backing and save myself the extra quilting.
