I half heartedly decided to join my friends Bron and Ange in making a Scrap Vomit quilt at the end of last year - I participated in a 2.5 inch square worldwide swap, and swapped with some local quilters ... but I still wasn't really feeling the love.
And then, I dunno. Something happened and I slowly fell in love with it. And then Bron and Ange and I decided to show our collective vomit at the Canberra Quilters exhibition in August this year.
I got my centre blocks sorted out. I decided on a Suzuko Koseki honeycomb print, charcoal Sketch and citrus Sketch fabrics.
This photo was taken before I pieced all the blocks together. It took forever - mainly because I'm a pinner.
The quilt show entry forms are due this Friday, and I need to submit a photo of the top, and some fabric samples. This afternoon was the last chance I had to have photos taken in natural light - winter in Canberra usually means the light is gone by the time I get home from work in the afternoon. It was a rushed affair - Scott had been digging storm water trenches all afternoon and there was a LOT of mud after the weekend's rain.
And it was really windy. I stood in front of the most protected spot, which also shows off a breathtaking example of our current storm water solution. Just keeping it real, people.
"HURRY UP MY ARMS ARE TIRED!!!"
Hooray for tall husbands with long reaches (and very muddy boots. Sigh.)
The quilt heads off to the long armer next week. And then it is going to get a very thorough soak in the tub.
