I cut the 4 1/2 " sqares for this quilt about this time last week . It is now quilted and this evening I shall add the binding and sit sewing it down .
A 9 patch is very quick to do . The fabric was all from my stash so a very economical quilt to make . I intend to make another one for my daughter in law . I shall be more selective with the colours because she wants to give it as a birthday present . This was really a dummy run to see how long it would take to make.
I did say I had been sitting around a great deal but at least I have something to show .
Browsing in my garden yesterday I noticed 1 lily from last year coming through ,it is about 8 " high and already had lily beetles chomping at the leaves . I drop more than I pick off because I dislike them so .
