Well it's true. I have gone off at a tangent again, though I was good at the Bee yesterday and spent all day hand quilting my UFO. Not a lot more to quilt, then the binding and my first UFO of 2013 will be done!!!
Now this tangent. Well I was blog hopping as one does, and found this lovely tutorial by
Elizabeth Hartman, so I just had to make up a couple of blocks. I have always been fascinated with quilt as you go projects. Wow, these were looking good. I wish I had cut the backing larger to start
with.This will have to be a rather small project.
not big enough for shopping but fine for carrying small projects to classes and clubs.

The quilt as you go method was quick and easy. The fabric I used was thicker than quilting cotton, so it stands up all on it's own. Well pleased.
|Ann's Baby quilt.|
A lot of fun was had at the Bee yesterday and it was good for me to get out after the bad cold I have had.
Ann brought her lovely baby quilt she was making to show us, the Jemima Puddelduck border was enchanting, and Pippa's blocks , well what can one say she is so neat and tidy and puts the rest of us to shame.
I do wish this weather would brighten up so I could get out in the garden, good excuse to sew though.
Keep safe and keep stitching .....Doti...
