Instead I started work on my second quilt that I want to finish by mid March so I can show it in our first exhibition of applique. It consists of 4 pieced and 5 appliqued blocks and then a pieced border.
The quilt is a Michelle Yeo pattern based on an 1800s quilt. I've chosen to make it in modern colours rather than my usual reproduction fabric as a change in style. While it's so hot I think my hand stitching will be more pleasant to work on than quilting a large and hot quilt. I hope the weather cools down again soon as it will be hard to sleep during the day when I'm working nights and also hard to get the quilts finished. I never have a lack of hand stitching I can do luckily.
Hugs, Jan Mac
