My weekends work

This is what I've been working on over the weekend. I am trying to get it done for DH's birthday, (which was 2 weeks ago) I had to give the poor guy a rain check as it got a bit challenging for my
mental capabilities, LOL.
However, I'm on to it with renewed vigor, I'm gonna nail this quilt!!

But then I have had the odd smallish problem, I haven't had any pattern pieces as I just did the triangles all out freehand. So I used all my scraps of batiks, but some were a bit small, or I had them sewn on at the wrong angle, and BINGO! too short, doesn't fit!

Did I tell you a have quite the relationship with my quick unpick!! LOL

However, now can you see where I'm headed??

A long way to go yet!

Carole :D

GORGEOUS!!!! Amazing colors. Love the wobbly border and sunburst centers.

I really came looking for photos of your "Madness and Mess" of a studio. Isn't this where you were going to post them? ;)
