I managed to get the Pay it Forward packages down to the post office yesterday and about half an hour after felt terrible - I have finally succumbed to the dreaded 'flu. I couldn't be staying in bed all day so decided to do something simple which didn't involve using creativity. I have joined the Black and White Quilt Challenge and also the Friday Block Party so decided to combine the two and audition some of the black and white fabrics I have collected. I quite enjoyed some simple piecing which I have not done for a long time and although the points don't always match there is no place for the Quilt Police here.
This block is called Broken Dishes Variation.
and this one is Foot Stool (slightly adapted from the original) - who comes up with these names?
I also like to use samples done in classes as something useful. I recently did a course with Fibre in Form called Textile Surface which resulted in lots of different technique samples. They have been cut up and have made what I think are very effective bookmarks.
Off now to feed the cat and indulge in a hot toddy - unlikely that it will make me better but I will enjoy trying.
