I got distracted!

It was like this . . . I had black thread in the machine for the pastcards, so I might as well do some black mending . . .  and then I could add the diamonds top and bottom of Swirls . . .

then I could start on Heather's Black and White and Pink.  I put a book on the audible, and started listening to Steig Larsson's Girl With a Dragon Tattoo (much easier to follow all the characters when you hear their names rather than read them) while I cut and stitched and ironed and cut and stitched and . . .  ooops, i'm supposed to be working on the Texture quilt, and instead I've almost pieced  the B+W+P!

This is a rubbish pic as I dont have a design wall, just a design bed, and I cant get high enough to photograph the whole top.  It will be 12 squares x 16, and each block is 4 inches finished.  At the moment I have 12 assembled pieces: each one is 4 squares by 4, and apart from the ones that create an H they can be moved around to their best potential.

I'm not too sure about the H, should the horizontal bar be three squares wide (as it is now) or should it just be two squares wide?

It was inspired by this quilt, and I hope Heather loves it as much as I'm enjoying making it.  I'll put it to one side now (her 21st is in November) and get on with the texture quilt, but it was a lovely distraction!


  1. The BW&P is looking really good - I love those scissors! I wouldn't worry about the H, I think either way is fine, and I would definitely not unpick it!

  2. Great job on both quilts! Love the swirls and the diamond border!

  3. The sewing whirlwind continues! I think that they look lovely.

  4. Thanks so much for the mention. I could get lost for hours searching all the fun things on pinterest ;) Your version looks great. I love the touches of pink on the corners. I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes along.

    And those swirls are gorgeous too!
