I’ve been super busy with family and the 9-5 recently, although I haven’t stopped sewing. One decision I did have to make was my entry for Festival of Quilts. Yes I said entry not entries.
Originally I did have 2 but I’ve made the decision to cut back so that my lack of time won’t impact on the quality of the entry that is nowhere near finished at the moment. That does mean that I can show you photos of it now.
This is Crazy year and it was destined for this year’s Festival, now maybe you will get to see it next year. At this point it isn’t yet up to the right size. The minimum is for a side of a meter and the main central area is only about 60cm (or 2 foot in old money).
Currently it has an extra white border which actually helps balance it out and shoves it over the minimum. I love the pieced squares and I do have 52 left over blocks of 4 which may, or may not, end up as the back. Considering it is a wall hanging quilt I’m not fussy about what will be on the back other than the label…oh and the orphan block which didn’t make it on to the front. Crazy year is still awaiting hand embroidery and machine quilting. That’s mostly why it’s on hold, the time needed to make the best of every block isn’t going to be a feature of my life any time soon. There’s even a tub of buttons waiting to be added to it. So Crazy year will be finished, I can promise you that.
