Example no. 2
A few weeks ago as I was putting together my "Sea Views" quilt top I lay out all the blocks on the floor and asked my husband - "okay, what do you think, does it look good, is there anything that stands out?" He looked for a moment "Nope, looks good". So I proceeded to sew it all together with the sashing. When I looked again I realised that two of the same fabrics were next to each other. Oh no! I showed Todd the catastrophe at hand - he said "Yeah, I saw that right away, but I thought you wanted it that way, so I didn't say anything.".... (It actually didn't take too long to unpick, turn the block around and sew it again, and it was kind of fun complaining all the way)
But he does take a nice photo... I'm going to miss him when he's away for work for the next little while.
Thanks for all the lovely comments about my "Sea Views" quilt. I really appreciate all your kind words, and your holiday spots have made me smile and think of warmer times. There's still some time to enter and snag yourself some gorgeous fabric (if you haven't already), just see the post below.
Also, I'm being featured on Quiltstory today! Thanks for the invite Heather and Megan. They have a great blog over there, featuring tonnes of gorgeous quilts along with the quilters, stories and processes behind them. What a fabulous idea! Go and check it out.
