First - don't forget to head over and enter my lovely book giveaway if you haven't already (thanks Stash Books). Although I warn you that you might end up liking using a little embroidery in your quilts. I'm a convert I tell you.
It's this great chevron/zigzag quilt put together using jelly rolls (I love me a jelly roll) with the odd charm square thrown in. You can download the pattern from Moda Bakeshop here. It has a lot of chain piecing, which is very therapeutic.
Then it has a lot of laying out, which is not quite so therapeutic. This is what the painstakingly laid out quilt pieces look like after Roger the cat has been left at home with them. Not only that, but apparently BQF's wee man had a incident with his remote controlled car. "Mummy the car just ran over the qwuilt.* But it's okay mummy, I fixed it". Or not. Bad car.
This is Roger. Here he looks like butter wouldn't melt, right? I understand it was pretty touch and go as to whether he would be returning to the SPCA after his initial quilting effort. Naughty Roger. But here he insists it was nothing to do with him. Those claw holes in the fabric must have been made by some ferocious cloth beast. Or something. Whatever it was, he's guarding the quilt so it doesn't happen again.
BQF is using Reunion by Sweetwater for Moda for the fabric. It's to go on her hubby's boat/yacht thingie (he's a mad sailing buff) so it is very in theme. I'm thinking it would be an awesome pattern for my Lorax jelly roll.
Linking up to all the mid week linky parties! Howdy visitors!
* not a typo! That's how he says it. Cute, right?!
