Needlework Tuesday - The Challenge Deepens
It was just last week that I told you about the challenge that was issued by my local Quilt Guild president. If you missed that post, click this link for the details and block choices.
When I left you last week, I was off to search my fabrics and see what I could find in the black/white/ yellow range. First is the lovely piece of mottled black that I originally purchased as sashing for quilt for my son. Oh, black isn't all that difficult to replace. Mother bought me this black and yellow check when a shop went out of business. I knew it would come in helpful. It will be the backing as I'm not sure whether it's poly or not. Have to do the flame test.
Before I could start sewing I first had to re-install Electric Quilt EQ5 and then install the EQ6 upgrade. Haven't got around to purchasing the EQ7 upgrade as I haven't even used these ones in the past two years.
Showing in this photo is the block minus some half square triangles.
Monday the 6th of June is the due date for this top. I hope to have lots of photos of the other entries next Tuesday.
Have you made a black/white/yellow quilt? If you have posted it on your blog, send me the link, otherwise, send me a jpeg and I'll post it with the others next week.
I'd better get back to the fun.
What's everyone else up to?
Lit and Laundry joins in with a cross stitch inspired by Jane Austen. Hope I got that right, it's been a while since I read those books.
