I’ve missed the FoQ this year

Aug 18th, 2011

I’ve been so busy with the shop and things that I just couldn’t find the time to get up there. But, oneĀ of my customers, Angie, has saved me the trouble! There’s more mouthwatering loveliness here. Looks like I missed out on a doozy, but that’s a good thing. I always fall in love with a few of the quilts and then obsess about making my own versions for a few days before finally coming back down to earth with a bang. There is no way that I have the talent to produce anything like those beauties.

It seems so long since I’ve done any quilting. My current project (I’m trying to be much more disciplined about finishing things) is last year’s BoM from Hatched and Patched, Pockets of Posies, which I did with the Quilt Room in Dorking.

It’s about 1/4 quilted and, all summer, it’s sat folded up in the corner, looking forlornly at me. But Angie’s blog and recent Autumnal weather has been getting me in the mood. It’s certainly been cold enough to lay swaddled in the quilt’s warmth as I curl up on the sofa to quilt. No floor stands for me; it’s lap quilting all the way, for no other reason than lack of space. Then my dogs love to lay on it and I end up being unable to turn it at all. I’m such a sucker. I never make them move!
