Turning 20 - again, well 12 actually.

I have a pattern called Turning 20 - again, that uses fat 1/4s. You layer 4 fat 1/4s together, cut them all in one go and shuffle to cut pieces and then sew it all back together again. LOL.

It is a fun and quick quilt to make but not sure if I really like this either. I used 12 fat quarters and each block measures 16ins finished. Now does it need a border or not?

Nearly an FO (Finished Object)

I am a quilter but just lately I had lost my passion for sewing. That is really not me as I lived to sew. Anyway, I have recently started to sew again but am determined to finish some projects that I started but never finished a 1000 years ago. These are affectionately known as UFOs (unfinished objects).

This is a quilt top that I made sometime before the written word was invented so I have backed it and quilted it and it is now ready to take with me when we go away this May Bank Holiday weekend where I can hand sew the binding to the back and maybe add a bit of hand quilting to it.

I can't say I like it but at least it's finished.
