Decisions Decisions


What do you do when you've had a fabric delivery and you can't decide which you like best?


Simple - you have all three :-)

And you use them to make a quilt, entirely out of Courthouse Steps. They look like dog bones and cotton reels.

It isn't finished yet, I just laid them next to each other to show you. Neil really really doesn't like it, but I love it. It's so bright.

This is Barbara's version. Barbara is making a baby quilt, the centre squares are burgundy not black as they look on blogger. The quilt is for a little boy and the colours are that of a football team, but I don't know which one- I forgot :-( (Angela I think it is Aston Villa...... Neil)

Today though I have been working on this. It is for my C and G course, we have to show the use of commercial ribbons.
I'm not sure I like it but as it isn't finished yet I might grow to like it.

I adore the courthouse steps quilt - and I cant believe how much you have done since saturday! What a little beaver you are ;)

I like those bright colours in your quilt. As for the homework... a lot more auto patterns... and perhaps some cable stitch on the surface to blend it all together?

Ooh, I think those three fabrics look lovely together! So bright and fresh :-)
