A busy Day....

Well, the last few days haven't been entirely productive, but I made up for it today.
I'm working my way through Bonnie K. Hunter's Carolina Christmas mystery quilt.  The actual mystery is over, but I'm dragging my heels with the steps.  I'm up to step 4.
Millions of triangles....
from this...

to this.  All sewn together, all 208 pairs of them.  Which only leaves cutting apart and pressing of  them.  I may be here all day!
I am attending Summer School at Patchwork on Stonleigh this week and although I have been collecting fabric for quite some time, I realised that I had no background.  Not sure how that happened.  First thought was to visit quilt shop, but they are both closed until Monday.  Hmmm, what to do?  Remembered my tub of neutrally fabrics.  The pieces I need aren't large- only one 2m piece and one 2.5m piece, and what do you know I found 2 pieces that will fit the bill.  Lucky for me I have a stash, (which is just what I impressed upon DH ).
I'm doing 2 quilts at summer school, here are my requirements so far:

I'm going with a DF Ms A and we're really looking forward to it.  All hand stitching, gentle conversation and good food- what more can you ask for?  Oh, and air conditioning!


  1. Mmmm, yummy fabric choices for Summer School. You think you are dragging your heels on Carolina Christmas - all I've done is print the instructions! Looking forward to seeing your version with those nice reds.

  2. Gorgeous fabrics... there sure are a lot of triangles there...
