Just a quick post today, I have to go get Cam from Kindy in about 5 minutes. I wanted to quickly show you my completed Paducah Challenge quilt. I just finished sewing down the binding at quilt group today.
Linda and a group of friends meet up in Paducah each year and bring along the results of their challenge from the previous year. I was with Linda last year when the girls met up, and the challenge for this year was to make up a doll quilt to be given to charity with the fabrics you see in the picture.
It took me a long time to start my challenge quilt as the fabrics are so different to anything I would have chosen, but as the time draws near to send it off, I decided to bite the bullet and just make something ... anything! I made up four DJ blocks, they are easy foundation pieced ones. The rest of the quilt went together easily, and to draw the black in the blocks out a little more, I put a piping with the binding. The quilt is around 17" square, and hopefully the quilt will be loved by a little person.
The binding didn't take long at quilt group, and with a lack of other stitching with me, I decided to cast on a sock with the Patonyle yarn I purchased the other day. I love, love, love how it's knitting up! I haven't even done one inch of knitting yet, but I can see I'll struggle to work on other things.
Well, that's it from me ... strike one goal off the list, and run out the door!
