So I have been keeping this one under wraps, not on purpose mainly just because I have been a very lazy blogger.
A few months ago, as most of you know I had a visit to chookyblue's place, whilst there I had the pleasure to sleep under some of her gorgeous quilts.
But one in particular took my fancy
I just loved the scrappiness of this quilt, the lovely colours but mainly just the simple design.
So when I headed up to Nundle for my retreat, I sent the lovely Kerry a photo and she assured me she could pull together some lovely fabrics and guide me, to put this lovely quilt together.
When I arrived at Nundle
This lovely bundle of fabrics awaited me
The girls and I used the black and white feature on the iPad to determine light medium and dark fabrics
I spent 3/4 of the first day creating these squares, I think I frustrated Miss Joolz because I just could not be random, I had to be organised I didn't want to get end and end up with a huge bundle of the same fabrics...
Midway through the second day I had my squares joined into sets of four and was able to lay them out to pick the border fabrics.
I left Nundle with a bag of blocks
On arriving home my blocks were pinned to the design wall
And I played and played until I had the blocks just as I wanted them
Then gradually over the following weeks the blocks became rows, and the rows became my quilt
Then the borders were added, including a supper cute little peeper
And tah dah my finished Scrappy chook quilt flimsy
The scrappy chook quilt
named in honour of my good friend
"Hope your hands are working on a project you love"
