So, back in March, do you remember I got all pumped about the Parson Gray Curious Nature fabrics?
And that I bought heaps of it for all kinds of sewing projects including skirts, shirts, scarves, etc, including the quilt pattern featured on Parson Gray’s website?
Well, I did finish the quilt top in time to give it to Moshe for his birthday on 25th March, but then it’s sat in an ever-upwardly-growing pile.
So, yesterday, I checked my calendar, and yep, Sunday was all clear! Apart from cleaning out the fridge (which I’ve been postponing for a bit too long for comfort), and one load of laundry (easy peasy), oh, yes, and watching the last three episodes of the final season of Weeds, my whole day was free! Yippee!
I got Moshe to help me rearrange the lounge room furniture, and drap out the two long trestle tables from the laundry, and I sewed up the back for the quilt, pressed it nicely, laid it out over the two trestle tables, got the batting Moshe had just raced out to buy from yippee-they’re-open-on-Sundays Patchwork on Central Park, and Moshe’s quilt is now - finally! - pinned and ready for me to hand-quilt it.
Let the quilting begin!
Now to decide whether to change thread colour as I’m quilting in concentric circles through the fabric changes. What do you think, yay, or nay?
