Firstly, let me say a big Happy Father's Day to my wonderful Dad. We'll be catching up at a BBQ at Mum & Dad's house today. He's a wonderful man, and I'm so lucky to have him in my life.
I had no clue that Father's Day was celebrated at different times in different places, but I guess it would be more strange if everyone got together and organised it for the same time? For my friends in the US, I hope you're having a great Labor Day long weekend!
For today's dose of eye-candy, I have attached a picture of a quilt top that has been haunting me for years! This is a quilt I began piecing shortly after Cameron was born. I had decorated his room with a Winnie the Pooh theme, and had grand plans for this quilt to be ready for when he moved from the cot to a 'big boy's bed'.
As you can see, I've gotten stuck at the first mini border. I have made a mountain of half square triangles for the next part of the border, but I think it was the final border that had me unglued. I have decided to add the half square triangle border and call it finished. Maybe I'll add a plain final border, I'll decide when I get there. Cameron's room has long been themed Buzz Lightyear, and so this quilt just needs to be off the nagging UFO list, and out of my head.
On my list of goals for this month, this quilt is to be at the 'marked and pinned' stage. If I get it quilted, that will be a bonus! I would like to do some feathered wreaths in the alternate blocks, and other than that, I have no plans for the quilting ... ohh, except for the fact that this will be machine quilted, and not hand quilted like I had originally planned.
