There is always too much going on in December and this year is no exception.... I have been very very busy with work and everything else on top. I have also worked a lot on one of my WIP and I am so pleased that I am nearly there.
Our lovely childminder is sadly retiring this week (she had told us about 18 months ago but I have been in denial until really recently just because she is brilliant). Anyway, when I started the Farm Girl Quilt in the spring, I knew I wanted to make it for her. And I initially did well with the first few blocks and then completely fell off track. With 6 blocks when I needed 30 for the quilt I wanted to make, there was some serious catch up to do!
So I worked through the blocks in the last few weeks and finally made my last block this week-end. The quilt top was assembled by Monday night and I quilted it yesterday with a lovely flower pattern inspired by The Inbox Jaunt.
So here it is a WIP that I need to turn into a finish this week.... Just the binding to hand sew now.
I must admit I love how this quilt has turned out and it has so many special memento for our childminder, I hope she will like it. Hopefully I will blog about the finished quilt in the next few days...
