could it just possibly be?



Yes. Over the past few evenings I have been doing some chain piecing and pinning and have FINALLY finished my retro flowers blocks.

It has been at the expense of me catching up on the HFWYG? QAL blocks but I needed to get something finished and since I've been at this longer I know it'll feel wonderful to have it quilted. I'm sure once I've struggled with putting this together and quilting it some nice blocks will be just the ticket!

I'm intending to do the most simple quilting I can do, straight lines, as I'm not sure I can cope with anything more vigorous.

  4. Love them! Good for you. And I personally love straight line quilting both for it's ease and it's beauty, so if I could only straight-line quilt forever, I'd be happy...just saying...

  9. Lucy, these blocks are beautiful!! I love the fabrics - this is going to be a fabulous quilt. And I hear you about the quilting. I am never capable of anything taxing when it comes to the quilting part. I tried something taxing once this year and it's still undone months later...

  10. Yay - the batting for mine arrived yesterday! I just need to piece the backing - how can such a great quilt pattern create such a feeling of lethargy!?

    Nothing wrong with some good old straight line quilting - then it lets the blocks and fabrics really shine!
