I can’t believe it’s the 4th December already! I wish I could be a kid again. Back then, school holidays seemed to last months not weeks and Christmas took forever to arrive. Now, I blink and a week’s passed! There’s barely time to fill a bobbin before something or someone is clawing for my attention, be it tree decorating, jam making or opening the advent calender for an ever-demanding dog. Today however, it’s my half square triangle quilt.
With the Lighthouse Quilt having fled the WIP nest, I was itching to get back to the Gossip quilt. I’ve been hoarding that backing fabric for such a long time and it was great to finally make progress on the blocks a few weeks back. All the logs are cut and waiting patiently for me. Well, I hope they don’t mind waiting a little longer as this has to be the next thing I finish…
This half square triangle quilt was something that happened rather spontaneously and has been a bit of a cloak and dagger project. I impressed myself when I didn’t have to buy a single piece of fabric for it. Everything came from stash; handy considering the looming festive deadline. There are lots of favourites in here, including some of my coveted Heather Ross. If all goes to plan, I hope to baste this over the weekend and quilt it early next week.
I could really do with some of those elves right now!
