Bending the rules....

I've really enjoyed making my 9 nine patches but I'm afraid it's resulted in me bending the rules somewhat. You see, I'm not sticking to the one-a-day rule....I made 16 in my first session (because I was 10 days behind) and 42 in my second! I now have 58 which means only 12 more to go. I just need to crack my last 6 colour combinations which is not as easy as it sounds having used most of my fabrics. Don't they look scrummy on the cake stand!
The girls, Clare, Kay, Michelle and I attended our 6 hour machine quilting workshop yesterday. We were all pretty excited about 6 hours behind a machine before we even got there! The workshop was run by Mary Williams through the WEA. We didn't quite get 6 hours worth of machine time but we learnt SO MUCH and can't wait for the next installment in a fortnight. Highly recommended.


  1. Oh wow! You are a nine-patch whizz! Can't wait to see them!

  2. My head is still spinning - but my machine is broken!! Dropped the feed dogs for the free motion quilting and now they won't come back up again, so off to the repair shop it goes....hope it's back in time for the next instalment....

  3. Eeek, that is a disaster! I hope all is well soon. x
