When cutting out the centre blocks I had several melon shapes of the blue floral left, so they became a flower centre for the back of the tablecloth.
My husband was pressed into service to hold the top up as it is far too windy today for a photograph. Upon hearing that it was destined to become a tablecloth for the garden table, he has claimed this for himself as the perfect cover-up when he is sleeping (sorry reading!) in the garden on a sunny day. So it looks like I have lost my tablecloth already!
Now that I have this WIP off the list I can make a start on another one. The Triple Zip A Long kicked off on Monday, but I have been putting off starting until this Curved Seams challenge was finished. I ordered several zips from ZipIt thinking they would take a couple of weeks to get here, but they were really speedy delivering them so they actually arrived on the first day of the ZAL. How is that for service?
My fabrics are now cut and I am ready to join in with the ZAL.
Three zips in one pouch should definitely knock on the head any lingering difficulties with inserting zips, well that is the plan anyway!
So here is how my WIP list is looking now.
So my WIP list currently looks like this
- In Color Order HST BOM - Top Completed
- (Almost) Irish Chain quilt basted
Tsatime quilt pieced, backed and bastedCOMPLETED
- 5 blocks of NY Beauty QAL completed and fabric cut for remaining 5 blocks

That will be a very well dressed table!! I love the idea of it being reversible, especially with my messy children!!ReplyDelete
Yay! It will make an awesome table cloth. Sometimes you need some time off to let your brain work!ReplyDelete
I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT!!! Congrats on meeting the challenge! I love your project and your thrifty attitude about using up scraps--genius!ReplyDelete
Yay for the finish, and double yay for multiple uses ;o)ReplyDelete
Oh, wasn't that a great movie! Great job on the curves!ReplyDelete
Great idea to incorporate the blocks into a tablecloth / cover-up and doesn't it feel good to cross it off the list. I'm off to see Les Miserables this week. I've heard it's very good and that I'll need tissues.ReplyDelete
BEAUTIFUL work! I love the block! Using the leftovers for the flower on the back was a genius idea. I love how your husband claimed it as a blanket :D!ReplyDelete
Your fabric choices for the Triple Zip are very pretty! I just checked out the ZipIt Etsy store and I think I am in love! So many pretty colors...I am going to have to start hoarding zippers now LOL!
Well done on the finish - and your idea for the back has just triggered a light bulb for my leftovers from the Mod Pop DP cutting!ReplyDelete
Looks gorgeous, I think you need to reclaim it for its intended purpose!ReplyDelete
well done on getting it finished, it looks great, and incredibly hard!ReplyDelete
Oh no, I'm late for the linky. I'm so behind on blog reading after all this time without broadband at home. Ah well, maybe next month.
This has turned out perfectly. Looks very tricky - you've done a fab job :)ReplyDelete
