Almost Done

Big progress has been made this week quilting Butterfly Garden and I finished the quilting late yesterday afternoon.  The binding is sewn on ready to be stitched down.

We've had some big storms the last couple of days - very tropical weather here lately.

Another cot quilt top is finished and I have 2 others cut out ready to sew up but first I'll pin and quilt some of the finished tops. 

A couple of weeks ago a girlfriend showed me a book she'd bought which explains how you take a striped fabric, eg

Cut it into squares, then quarter-square triangles and re-arrange the triangles to make different patterns, eg

I think it's brilliant.  Might make some cushion covers out of these when they're sewn together.

Wow, that will be great to have your Butterfly Garden finished, Lynda. Bet it looks really lovely. How ingenious to play with the stripes like that - someone has a clever mind to work it out in the first place :) Storms here too

Looking good....your new cot quilt is so soft and pretty, and to think you can create those blocks from stipes, amazing...

Wow - love what you did with the stripes.

Hello Lynda,

Just beautiful. Love how you changed the fabric around,what is the name of the book the instructions came from?
Happy times sewing on the binding.
