|Lullingstone Challenge Quilt - W 15 x L 39 inches|
This is one of the garments I have been making since getting back into clothes making. I altered the neck opening, as I have made it before and found the neck V was easily damaged.

Here is a picture of the Easy Stack quilt I mentioned in my last post.
Lastly, this Crazy Paving quilt (started at evening classes with Nita Dodd) has been a UFO for 11 years, but is now complete. It uses a stack and cut technique, with 9 different squares of fabric that you rotary cut into 9 trapezoid patches. These are then arranged into blocks using one patch of each fabric. The finished are blocks are 10.5 inches square, so the fabric squares were probably 12 inches. I made three sets of crazy paving squares and used 27 in this quilt. The other three ended up as a table runner, which I use a lot. The quilt is backed with a pale blue cotton sheet (single) so no joins on the back. It is quilted in the ditch between the blocks and around the centre trapezoid in each block. I think the blue sashing and batik border set it off nicely. Except for the backing, all the fabric came from my stash.
