Or so we thought.
|An old man we bumped into later said he'd seen us in the field. "What were you doing? Trying to fly a kite?"|
Clearly too windy there.
We almost lost the quilt top over the edge.
And it's a long way down...
Things looked up when we thought we'd found the perfect spot.
|Daughter No.1 : "I'm only doing this if no one is around. As soon as I see someone I'm losing the quilt. OK?"|
Until we realised it was probably right place, wrong time.
|Daughter No. 2: "Hurry up Mum. I think some people are coming."|
This quilt came about thanks to Fiona who (along with sending me the best cushion cover e.v.e.r), also sent me some of her spare Drunkard's Path blocks. In the spirit of using up and because I still had some left over from this quilt I thought I'd try another variation on this quilt block. I used the Drunkard's Path template from Acuquilt to crank a few more out, all from the scrap bin.
Fiona - I can definitely spot one of yours in this shot!
|And if you really want to look closely there's golf shoes in there too...|
It was fun to make. I forgot about colour and just concentrated on dark/light values.
|Linking up to Finish It Up Friday|
I would like to sincerely thank everyone that left comments on my last post. I have not given up hope of it appearing, especially after reading some of your comments. Annoyingly, a package I sent to the U.S.A. two weeks later has already arrived.
For all the disappointment, there is also a positive to be taken from it: at least I can stop worrying now that people were going to be looking at it thinking it wasn't modern or perfect enough :-)
Thank you again.
