I have been quilting DD's sofa quilt this week, but ran out of thread. Machine quilting is great but you can certainly get through miles of thread! I can't get any YLI variegated thread locally, so have sent off for more. In the meanwhile I was inspired by Wanda's gorgeous sizzling strips (go back to January 11th, but be prepared for serious inspiration on the way!) and Elaine's to rummage round in my UFO box to find a set of blocks I won in a raffle at a local quilt group which had been waiting to be joined together. There were 45 of them, so I made a few more to make 49 and then played around with them a bit to see how I wanted to arrange them.
The top bit is the part where you can see the sizzling of the dark and light stripes going on, but I thought the zigzag added interest. Now I can't decided whether to just add a border and make it into a Linus/lap quilt, or whether to do something more interesting (like add some more blocks but change the colour gradually to yellow and green). Maybe it'd be better to experiment on a whole new quilt than try to mess about with this one. Any ideas out there?
