This afternoon I am working on some blocks that will be put together for a quilt..a wedding gift for no.1 son and his fiance. I have been very lazy in actually making much progress and the blocks and fabrics have been hiding away in a cupboard for many months. But for some weird reason I felt compelled to beaver away today!! It is a reversible quilt...the batik side is for my daughter in law (to be) and the black and white side for Tristan.
This is a" quilt as you go" quilt. Each block is pieced with the batting in between and all three layers quilted together .The blocks are joined by a very narrow strip which is hand sewn on one side. The idea came from this book Reversible Quilts, Two at a Time by Sharon Pederson
It is a very different concept to the types of quilts I have made in the past and I expect that is why I have been dragging my feet , these fabrics aren't really me and I haven't enjoyed the process as much as usual. But having said that I know the recipients LOVE the fabrics and can't wait for the finished result , so I will keep ploughing on . It is going to look great on their bed.
