getting started


this quilt is requiring much perseverance

I feel as if I have been cutting & drawing away for weeks .... well 1 week

there are 30 rows of half square triangles to create the zig zags

I have done 7




the squaring up is taking an age

it's a good thing I am very fond of the design & intended recipient

the colours are beautifully vibrant in real life

I have made a template showing each row colour to guide me through , you can see it blue tacked to the wall

as a distraction I started on some hexagons .... which are too cute !!



happy sunday xx
