I have been in the habit of giving family members a quilt when they reach the age of eighteen. This has become a bit of an expectation amongst the younger brigade. That's more than fine by me, but this year, I hadn't fully appreciated that another birthday was looming, that of the twins! So, not just one quilt, but two!
Luckily I have an extensive collection of UFOs and have finally completed this scrappy nine-patch.
It's one of Bonnie Hunter's designs. Looking good, or at least it will do when I've finished sewing down the binding (and cutting off all the threads!). This will be perfect for Frankie.
And here is my lovely Easy Street as a top. I'm hoping Lauren will like it. It's a bit of an acquired taste, but young people usually like colour and it's the only UFO which is a decent size. I'll keep my fingers crossed here. So what did I do last night while watching the tv? Finish sewing the binding of the scrappy nine-patch? Layer up Easy Street?
No. Start another Kansas Sunflower! They are gorgeous, but I really need to get on with the twins' quilts. Watch this space!
