This is a christmas quilt which I SHOULD have started way way way before christmas but, well, I didn't so I thought there is not time like the present and maybe (fingers xxx) it will be finished for next christmas. The pattern is by Me and My Sister Designs called Cake Walk and I am using the Crazy 8 range by Moda. I have cut up all the 10" squares into 41/2" squares and now I need to cut the jelly roll strips into 21/2" squares.
This is a UFO which I have had sitting in my baskets for a long time so on New Years Day I decided to just get it finished. I was up to the quilting stage and could not decide how to quilt it. I really wanted to try stipple quilting but I am having heaps of trouble with my machine with the bobbin thread being very uneven and pulling on my practice attempts so in the end I just decided to sew buttons on to get it finished. The range of fabrics is called "Sultry" and I have just used homespun for the binding and backing. It is very pink and not really my colours so this is the first project to go into the gift bag for 2010.
