My mad birds, way too big for the design wall. Managed to set out the hexagon applique on the blue/mustard border. More applique required to finish off the blocks.
Spent a lot of time matching mitred corners "sort of" but not quite managing to match the pattern on the half way marks. Oh well, the quilt is pretty wonkinated anyway. There will be plenty of distractions with appliqued hexagon confections and crazy trees over this fairly loud border so no matchies will be part of it's idiotic charm.
Great news ...Jean from Linen & Raspberry called into Material Obsession today and signed up for Marg's workshops next year!
Otherwise not too much quilting has happened in the EF household - The Big Trek is looming and Mr EF reckons I'm unprepared so was pressed into participating in the Seven Bridges Walk last Sunday. In support of The Cancer Council, it encircles Sydney Harbour and crosses 7 bridges along the way and covers 25km, we managed 19.8km (but whose counting?) before sore feet won out and
we he piked.
The Big Trek is a gift Mr EF and I are giving to each other. Next Friday we fly to Queenstown on the south island of New Zealand for 10 days and will walk the Milford Track - a four day hike up over MacKinnon Pass - (maybe there is just a teeny weeny bit of irony in me booking a hike over a mountain to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary)
WWIT BP centre panel will come to NZ with me, perhaps after the TBT I'll get some stitching done as we explore NZ SI. Catch ya later.
