I’ve finished the first four Camelot Blocks and I thought you might like to see them together. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions I really appreciate them.
I had a minor diasater at one stage when I thought I had finished Block 4 only to take a photo and realise I had one of the sections upside down! I wondered why it didn’t fit well. Oh well the lesson there is don’t work on something when you’re really tired. 🙂
I hope 2013 is a wonderful year for you all and your families.
I’ve sorted out a huge pile of fabrics and made a start on the Camelot quilt I blogged about a while ago here. If you scroll down you can see a picture of the quilt. I’m not sure that I’ll use those fabrics in that blog post for the background. I’m going to make all the circles first then decide.
Is there a product that you wished existed? Something that you would find really useful. I have one. I wish that Aurifil would make sample boxes. Something similar to the Superior Threads donut but with a lid to keep out the dust. There is a lovely French made thread call Fil au Chinois that comes in tiny spools. See below. Wouldn’t it be neat if Aurifil did the same for a variety of colours of 50wt for appliquéing and 12wt for embellishing quilts?
I had some scraps left over from where I cut off the irregular edges of the Chevron Explosion Quilt and my husband had asked me to make him a sleep visor so I did and here it is. I used improvisational foundation paper piecing What do you think? He says they are the most comfortable visors he’s ever worn.
