Well I took the photo in the garden

As well as amateur gardening, I also enjoy amateur sewing. And as it would be ridiculous to have THREE blogs, I think I will very occasionally put sewing pics on the gardening blog. Quilting is a BIT like gardening. You have to plan, and then you grow something quite big and colourful… some of the fabric has flowers… yeah.

Anyway, I finished this one on the weekend. A zigzag quilt for 2013, to match my zigzag book.

It’s a nice big one – big enough for two people to snuggle under on the couch. Or one person and one dog. Or just one dog. It was very easy to make – came together really quickly. The hardest part was sorting the fabrics by value. And wrestling the stupid thing through my sewing machine to quilt. I think in the future I’ll just send them away to be quilted. There are 138 different prints featured – a pretty comprehensive summary of my fabric stash. The backing is Kona Coal, with just one line of zigzag.
