Oh My!

When I decided to make the 4OT quilt, I didn't realise just how many pieces I was going to have to cut out! So many that it's taken me several hours over two days, and resulted in a very sore shoulder from holding the ruler down.

Ive got big squares, bigger squares, little squares and even smaller squares, anda few rectangles just for good measure!

But most of the cutting is done now, and I've started piecing the flying geese. It's a different method from what I've used before, but so much easier!

Today I got a special package in the mail; a giveaway that I won on Bec's blog just before Christmas! I've never done a stitchery before, so this will be a good chance to learn.

Thanks Bec!

Nice presents from Bec, she's a sweetie :^)

What's a 4OT quilt?
And which way are you making the flying geese?
Curious minds want to know....

I admire you - I can not even entertain the idea of quitling something like that. My mum is a mad keen quilter and I just get scared when I see how much work there is involved. She made a gorgeous quilt for my daughters birthday - I will post some pictures this week.

Keep us up to date on how the quilt is going.
