So, it was ages ago when I posted about the "sunshine zig-zagquilt" for Ri. Well, no, I haven’t completed it yet. But I did finish the top and I am trying to figure out whether I should use a batting at all or just give it a back closure. Anyway, this is what the top looks like and Ri loves it.
And while I was at it, I also decided to make another quilt for SSM as a birthday quilt. Erm… birthday is over…the quilt isn’t. But hey, I did finish the top on his birthday. So we know that he will get it before winter sets in K
This was a super quick quilt I made and my first time ever at trying log blocks. Huge bi-coloured blocks. Once the blocks were made, I pieced them together only to realise they did not look quite right.
SSM is a sober guy, really. Drunken blocks were seriously not for him. So I dismantled the blocks (Sigh! God bless seam rippers) and rearranged them. They looked abstemious now.
I would be using a batting for this quilt. SSM likes squashy cuddly accessories in bed with him…Ahem! J
For the batting I would be using a fleece blanket. (Thanks, Shilpa for the flannel/ fleece blanket idea. I agree it seems well behaved. I totally heart the quilts Shilpa makes.)
And I will finish both the quilts soon, real soon. J
