Look what I won!
Yes, that’s right, I won a beautiful set of Aurifil threads for the December Lovely Year of Finishes!!
Aren’t they gorgeous?! I only have limited blue threads at the moment so very pleased to see this beautiful rainbowy array, can’t wait to try them out.
Onto my goals for this month.
Quite simply it’s this…….
Finish the city sampler.
I’m not sure it’s wise to set this as a goal, but really I should be able to get it done, I mean it’s taken long enough so far!!
The only thing is I’m not quite sure about the measurements.
Here was my original plan:
So two square blocks and then a narrower strip in the centre.
But now, after laying it on the bed, it looks a little too narrow in comparison to the length and the proportions just don’t feel right to me. The quilt would cover the foot on the bed easily, but only slightly fall over the sides. It’s not a big deal and it would look fine I’m sure, but I think it might bother me.
So the other option is this:
This means adding four extra blocks to the centre strips. I haven’t basted the narrow strips yet so that’s entirely possible. It would also work with my quilting idea. Plus side I can use more blocks….buuut it’s going take longer….boooo!!
What do you think, should I do it?
Oh and before I go here’s a sneak peak of the backing fabrics…..
