Last Sunday I had the opportunity to attend a "fastest quilt in the west" class. I started with 10 fat quarters and the tutor had bought some examples of her quilts to give us ideas of final layouts. The morning was spent measuring, then measuring again, then cutting; and after lunch we were finally able to make blocks. Once all our blocks were made the fun part started, moving them around until we were happy with the layout. My quilt is for Josh (14 years) who in the last year has shot up to just over 6 feet tall and needs a bigger bed. I made him a Boys Story quilt in 2011 here and it is now too small! After trying different block arrangements, the class consensus was the zigzag design as a more boyish look. I was amazed to get the main part of the quilt sewn together in a day, now it needs some borders to finish it. I'm thinking they may take longer to do than the first part!
Oh, and look, I made a sock! Wendy xx
