crafting this week - Quilter's Patch and more...
St Germain quilt has gone into storage, it will have to wait until after Christmas to be quilted.
Instead (after a long break) the Quilters Patch quilt (designed by Edyta Sitar) has come out of its box for another block, this one is called "Petunia block", sixth so far. I need to be in the right frame of mind to work on this quilt, because most of the blocks have many pieces, this one (14in block) has over 80 pieces of various sizes.
(The quality of pictures is not great at this time of year, most of them taken in the evening light.)
Needless to say, there is some unpicking going on here, as some of the background pieces are so similar in size;
if not paying attention, it is so easy to join together wrong bits.
But in the end it all comes together.
And I have just spotted a mistake!
Oh well, I think I can live with that one (in the grand scheme of things 😒).
What else have I been up to this week?
My "Winter Quilt" has also come out of the storage and is hanging on the wall.
And as we are getting close to Christmas, the crochet project "Santa's Village" has also resurfaced for another block, also no 6. That means that I am nearly a half way there.
May be in another couple of years.......
And here is the crochet project, "Mystical Lanterns" blanket.
Individual motifs are joined into strips, which will be joined together later.
I made another strip this week.
Again, I am half way there.
Outside, despite some frosty nights, our garden is still refusing to admit a defeat.
