A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

Rosie’s quilt #3


This is coming on slowly as I’m only getting time for it on some of my days off. I have managed to piece together the blocks though and now have a quilt top ready for making into a sandwich.

I struggled for ages with how to arrange the blocks. I wanted random, but I’m not very good at random. I like logic and order so kept finding myself making sure there weren’t any blocks with the same colours touching.

Eventually I just put the blocks into a pile and laid them out in rows as I picked them up and made myself leave it at that, although I did make sure to turn them so that as few seams lined up as possible. Less chance of them not matching that way πŸ˜‰

I think it came out quite nicely.

Rosie's quilt - 06It’s sitting on the batting in the photo and is nowΒ all rolled up on top of some cupboards where the cats can’t reach it. Hopefully I’ll find time to sort out some backing for it soon and get it basted.

  3. I too, struggle with random! It is comforting to know one is not alone!


  4. I can’t do random either. Far too stressful trying to get it really random!!
