To market, to market ...
We are heading off to visit friends next week, so naturally I decided at the last minute that a quilt would be the ideal present to bring with us!
Here's the progress so far
The pattern is called Floating in the Air and is from the Aug/Sept 2013 issue of Quilt magazine. The pattern calls for 63 charm squares for the block centres, but I have reduced it to 49 as the full size quilt would take up all of the baggage allowance :)
I am using up the text charm squares that I received in the Texty Charm Swap, which I discovered when looking for the link that I received two years ago!
No progress will be made on the piecing for the next two days though as I won this in a giveaway run by Bernina a couple of weeks ago.
Fortunately, the show coincides with the first day of the next Test match in the Ashes cricket series, so whilst I am browsing the eye candy at the Quilt show my other half will be soaking up the sun at Trent Bridge. Win-win all round :)
