It’s been a busy few days, making the most of having a weekend at home, and working on Horse Quilt No 2. I’ve been stitching blocks together and working out how to get them to fit around the horse element of this quilt. Here’s a sneak peek with Gemma helping my design decisions by jumping all over the quilt blocks laid out on our bed. I’m sure she thinks she is helping me, but this little ball of energy leaps here, leaps there, bounces all over the bed, having a high old time.
Once I worked our the maths of how to attach the blocks to the central area the rest will go together so much easier. I decided to have a count and see if I have enough blocks to complete this quilt top. This is what I have left.
Not quite enough – I need to stitch another 13 nine patch blocks, I’ll be able to make a good start on them this afternoon, and hopefully get them finished. That will be another step closer.
I’m working under pressure here – Gemma has decided that jumping up on my knees while I’m sitting at the computer writing a blog is a great thing to do. Here she is, all squashed up next to the table but happy to be close by. She is trialing her little pink harness today, all ready for her first trip away in the caravan next weekend – it doesn’t seem to worry her one little bit.
