It is taking some time but I thought I would show you my 'nearly finished' Mental Mashup lap quilt that I made out of the batik fabrics I got from my trip the Bramble Patch the other week. I didn't follow a pattern - it is simply 3 piles of 8 fabrics cut into 5 pieces and then restitched together.
I am still deciding what to quilt in the lattice around the squares - possibly some leaves as some of the batiks have leaf designs in them.
This is only my second qo at quilting a quilt - the one I did for Dad at christmas was my first. I have bought myself some quilting gloves now which definately makes life easier - but it is still tough getting it through my Janome! I dread to think how I am going to manage when I finally get my queen size sampler quilt top finished - now that will be a challenge!
Well I will take some photos when it is done so you can see it before it goes to it's new home - in the sitting room over my knees! I am definately keeping this one!
