hello March. I am liking you already, you are bright and sunny, although freezing and windy..... I am so looking forward to "pancakes AGAIN day" and "ponder the universe day" I think that everyday should be "be at one with chocolate day" however, which probably goes well with "don't take no for an answer day"
I shall not however be having any more clean outs, or de-cluttering, I cleared out my clothes recently and am already regretting the de-cluttering of a linen skirt......... also if I cleared out my study I may not have had to hand purple sequins, really strong thread to mend a watch, and eyelets to mend the 2 day old pair of sneakers that the teenage boy attempted to destroy.............
March also contains Comic Relief, the excuse to do something silly for charity. Emma of Silverpebble has been a true superhero by editing a truly fantastic magazine called the Big Comic Relief Crafternoon - (search for their facebook page) with loads of amazing delights raising money for some incredible causes. Go get one from Sainsbury's if you're in the UK, download it on googleplay or itunes (search for crafternoon) if you're not, and make yourself a guinea pig or a flock of birdies because everyone needs one, even my cats.
I've finished the piecing. November 2013-January 2015.
size 90 inches x 100 inches.
or 34 x 38 squares. = 1292 squares.
500 blue triangle squares
500 green triangle squares.
125 blue squares
125 green squares.
42 white squares.
I've pieced a back together from some large pieces of liberty I bought to make a sundress and a shirt and never did....... but I'm not happy with the arrangement, so I need to have another go at it, I think I'll cut the paler section on the left in half lengthways, and sew the other section to the right of the dark fabric. it might balance it. or not. I shouldn't obsess too much, it's the back after all.
I'm also dithering over ordering wadding. I usually use quilters dream blend, but this quilt is HUGE, and I think that will be too heavy, so I'm wondering about warm and natural. It could be that in all reality that all I am doing is procrastinating about actually quilting the thing!
