Well, I set the deadline, decided on the pattern and jolly well had to ramp up the fabric buying to make sure I had enough.
He's pretty into yellow and green as a colour scheme, so I adapted it slightly to mustard and teal.
The pile above is from My Bearpaw in Edinburgh, where I spent a very happy half an hour pulling bolts off the shelves while my Christmas gift vouchers burned a hole in my pocket.
This is Teal by Carolyn Friedlander from Botanics and a joy. I'm already considering buying more just because I love it so.
As I mentioned in my previous post, the quilt is made up of 540 (!!) triangles of various teal and mustard fabric. Cutting 540 triangles was a daunting prospect, but I got through it faster than anticipated.
I've started chain piecing these together, starting with the edges.
I've got a horrible feeling I've not let enough room between the selvage and the edge, but we'll see. I've got lots of these edge peices left over so am confident I'll be able to replace a few where it looks a bit tight. The one on the top of the photo above has already met with the unpicker!
