Black and White

Instead of a BOM, one of the groups which I belong to decided to have a block of the meeting this year with 17 of us taking part. We each take a turn in providing a pattern and at the end we’ll have a nice 4×4 lapquilt with the 17th block as a pocket on the back to turn the quilt into a quillow. I decided to use my collection of black and white fabrics to make a quilt for long-suffering DH, with the odd bit of red too. I also decided to quilt as I go in an effort to ensure this quilt would be put together. I was doing really well and made the first 5 blocks. Then I missed one meeting and before I knew it, I had 5 blocks to make!  A huge effort a few weeks ago and I had the blocks made but not quilted. Then I missed the last meeting….however, a friend rang last night to let me know the block – 4 six inch Flying Dutchman. Hmm, I decided to make it a 12″ 3D block instead and I’m rather pleased with it. I’ve been cutting the wadding and backing today so perhaps there’s a chance to get fully on track soon! Here are a few of the blocks: R

Bright Headland Quilters are also doing a block of the month. I’m also making these in blacks so that I can combine the two for a bigger quilt!


About sheppeylass

Mum of 4, I live on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. I've always sewn but the quilting bug snagged me a couple of years ago and now, with the encouragement of my artist husband, I'm spreading my wings into textile art.
