Windblown flower quilt

windblown flower quilt

Tina taught this quilt at our once a month Monday sit and stitch group.  The block is so easy to make but putting it together was a bit challenging and there were a few naughty words said alongside plenty of unpicking.   I was left with a huge pile of triangles and, being from Yorkshire with our ‘waste not want not’ mentality, I decided to use them.  I pieced them together to make the border.  There were a few naughty words said and a little unpicking done that day too!

I made a pact with myself that I would not start anything new until I finished something (EEK!!!) and after spending a couple of days cleaning (I hovered under the bed for goodness sake), I bit the bullet and put the binding on and finished this quilt.  It measures around 40 inches square and B said he doesn’t like it.  In fact he pulled a funny face and said he didn’t like the colours.   sigh.    This is the fabric collected for my next masterpiece!!

  1. Yummy colours for your next project and the windy flower quilt is very lovely. Worth all the stress and the hovering 😉

    May is really impressed, especially the colours. She wants to know if B is as colour blind as I supposedly am.

    B is not color blind, he just knows a little green would have given that quilt some color relief! Nice work, though… 🙂
