Tomorrow is the Melbourne Cup. A Race Meeting that is the highlight of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. In Victoria it is a holiday but most cities seem to watch the Cup Race on the TV.
But when one is retired, all days are holidays ... bliss.
My next quilt is going to be a Rebuilt Log Cabin. This is one I prepared earlier
At least one I made in 2008 gave it away as a present and it now resides in England. I do hope it is well loved as I dearly loved that quilt and always wanted to make another for myself.
As so I shall
a dear friend Elaine from Elaine Pieces in the Panhandle USA is such a whiz at quilting both piecing and the actual quilting, she is kindly doing a tutorial and sew along. So I am going to make another one with her.
The weekend was spent sorting in the cupboards and boxes of my stash. I have now discovered to my dismay that whilst I may seem to have a lot of stash, it is only small pieces. But I think I have enough of each colour now.
This is what I propose some have been cut into the 1.1/2in strips whilst the others will be joining them tomorrow.
I can't wait until she writes up the first set of Instructions .. so watch this space.
and thank you Elaine for your kind generosity in helping those of us not quite so creative.
