Which will only interest you if you are a quilter!!
1. I haven't sewn in probably a year.
2. I have never sewn this pattern before.
3. I did read the instructions, honestly, but obviously not well enough!!
So I did post a couple of photos of the baby quilt pieces I cut out on yesterday's post. It wasn't until I had sewn a lot together and cut them up more, that I discovered I had been too enthusiastic in my cutting and sewing. As I had bought this as a kit there wasn't any surplus material left over, so I had to improvise.
I first set the squares out in a couple of patterns on the kitchen table to see which way was the best:
When I decided on what I liked best I sewed them all together to make the quilt top.
This is a close up of part of it.
So instead of it being called "The Yellow Brick Road," pattern, it's now called, "Gill's Surprise."
Was watching Jamie Oliver the other day while having lunch, the show where he has Great Britain in the title?
Doesn't matter, because I was laughing so loud and hard I thought I was going to pee my pants. He was tasting a sandwich in the street and a little old lady passed by and said hello. He said hello back and asked if she would like a taste of his sandwich. She said yes and he said:
"Mind you don't get it stuck under your plate (false teeth)."
Only in England.........by the way he wasn't making fun of her, he genuinely meant her to watch what it, as the roll was a crusty one.
