Last night’s movie was great. I always enjoy a good love story 🙂
Going to Gold Class has now totally ruined me from seeing a movie at the ‘normal’ cinema though. Trust me when I say if there was a way for me to put the lounge chair into my handbag and bring it home for my sewing room I would have!
Today, I took some more time to chill out and relax and finished the borders on Dreaming of Paris. I also cut out out the Eiffel Tower and attached it to the quilt.
When I saw this on Tracey’s blog all the way back in January I fell in love with it and I knew that I wanted to make it but I wasn’t sure on what fabric I was going to use as I’m not the floral type.
The idea sat in the back of my head until mid March when I remembered I had fabric that I bought when I intended to make Leanne Beasley’s Butterfly Garden.
I knew that that would work and so late on Sunday 20th March I started to make the quilt. I did hesitate before I made the first cut because I didn’t think that I would have enough fabric but then I decided “what the heck” and just went for it.
I cut my squares to 3.5′ square as I didn’t think that I would get 5′ squares out of it. It was only after I finished cutting it all up that I realised that I would have been able to do 5′ squares. Doh!
It has now ended up as a rectangle, whereas Tracey’s is a square as I didn’t think or remember to trim my squares down to the size they were supposed to be. That’s ok though, cause I think it works just as well as the original.
I got the centre done with the pink flange (Tracey has her ric rac, I have my flanges 🙂 ) attached as well. I finished attaching the grey border on 23rd March and then it just sat waiting until this weekend.
I am really looking forward to getting the time to quilt, bind and finish this quilt. I don’t have a receipent in mind at the moment but I’m sure one will come along.
