In the Pink
This pink quilt was made by Irene one of the Friday afternoon ladies at The Fat Quarters. One of the best things about being in a group is the inspiration from other peoples work.
Earlier in the year, every Friday she bought a different fat quarter of fabric on a pink and white theme. Here you can see the wonderful quilt she has created with them. Cut into 5" squares and arranged in a diagonal stripy pattern, simple but effective.
and its all brought together with some wonderful hand quilting , I just love the beads on this lovely border pattern, and the scrappy binging made from all the left over strips. Isn't it pretty?
Last weekend we made the most of the lovely autumn weather and had a long walk on Druridge Bay, we just about had the place to ourselves. The weather hasn't been like that today though. Lots of rain and flooding in the North East tonight.
and just to remind ourselves of the better weather - when we got on this boat in the marina at Gibraltar, it was so hot that I didn't know how I would survive the next hour in the blazing sun without any shade.
Tomorrow we are off to The Scottish Quilt Championships in Edinburgh - watch this space !!
Happy Quilting xx
