We were to be starting the centre panel for a new quilt called Sutton Grange. I can tell you that up close and personal it is even more beautiful, a work in progress and will be stunning when finished. Di is most definitely the Queen of Fussy Cutting.
Progress was made during the day and this was what I did. That little drunkard's path block is 2 1/4 inches and there are a lot of them to make. I am sure that with Di's method of stitching they will soon whip up.
During this week I have continued to work at it and auditioned various fabrics for the outer edge and this is my almost completed block. The edges are tacked ready for needleturning and then I need to think about the broderie perse. I also had great luck with the background fabric as my friend Marie just happened to have something that suited it perfectly. The search is on now for a border stripe.
It was a great day stitching with a group of lovely ladies, eating good food and yummy puddings and it was a privilege to see some of Di's quilts that we only get to admire via the internet.
Thank you Sue for inviting me and lucky me is spending the weekend at Cowslip with even more stitching with Di.
