I'm calling it "Moonshine"....You know... Drunkards path blocks... I'm sure it needs no explanation really.
The lovely Fiona sent me a bunch of fabric a couple of weeks ago, because she wanted to donate more to Siblings Together, but didn't have the time to spare to make a quilt.

Enter me, with my masses amount of spare time (not true by the way, but I don't have 3 young children like Fi does to keep me busy!)
I wizzed the Anthology FQ's and some solids, through my go!baby cutter on my new Drunkards Path die:
Then sewed them up into blocks on Saturday. I didn't find the curves difficult per say, but I did get quite bad back ache from sewing them. I had to hunch up all close to the needled and feed them through really carefully. But, out of 100+ DP block segments, I only had to re-sew about 3. So I'd say its a win really.
I was working with what I had, and I didnt really fancy white sashing, so I used this light aqua colour (its not Kona, but is pretty close to Kona Baby Blue) and then bordered in a hot pink.
On Sunday, I pieced the back, again from what I had on hand (half pink solid, and half pink stripped seersucker type fabric). I quilted it, in a FMQ stipple, whilst watching a Friends marathon, with my bestie :o)
The binding is one of my favourite prints ever, from Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane and it worked so well with the colours on the top I couldn't not use it. I had JUST enough. Seriously, there was like 2 inches spare!
These 2 quilts just need labels, and they will be ready to send for some lovin' in a new home :o)
