Today was an unexpected sewing day. I was supposed to watch my 2 grandsons but things changed so I was free for the whole day. I have no right to start anything new but all that hand dyed fabric from the quilt show was sitting on my table, tempting me.
These colors are hard to photograph, the color of my block looks so different in real life. These came with a pattern that I really like but if I make the quilt with these fabrics it will be considered a kit and I won't be able to put it in our quilt show to be judged. So I will make the pattern with different fabrics, maybe my own hand dyes.
The wedding quilt top is almost all together, I worked on that today too. I am thinking of putting borders on the sides and bottom and not the top. Does anyone else ever do this or does it look bad?
For those of you who loved Downton Abbey there is another show that is on PBS and English. It is called "Call The Midwife". Season 2 starts this Sunday. We are about half way through Season 1. My friends Cheryl and Jane and sister Flynn all highly recommended it so of course I watched. Even my husband is watching it so it is not just a chick show. It takes place in the 1950's when we were born, so our interest is keen. Gosh I am glad I had my kids in the 70's and 80's! I will say I love the sweaters and skirts in the show complete with pearls!
