top done

Well I have finished the quilt top.
I decided to opt for a smaller quilt (7 x 7 blocks, 7 1/2").
I have enough for 2 quilts.
The other decision I had to make was borders:
I don't do borders.
The photo below shows the first attempt but it seemed the wide border didn't work so I cut it down.
What do you think?

does size matter

This photo is dated January 2.
That's a good start for the new year don't you think.
They are a bit out of my comfort zone.

And I am well and truly underway.
So far I have made 77 blocks. They are 7 1/2".
I think I might have got carried away.
I was thinking these bright colours lend themselves to a cot-sized quilt but how big is that?
Should I add borders?
Maybe I'll make two (it's always handy to have a few in the "gift chest")

too late

I was too late finishing this to call it a 2018 finish.
But here it is:
It is based on a Red Wagon pattern which I "customised"

The flip-side.
This is a remake of one of my very first quilts and the owner of that has claimed this.
After the usual round of social media and public exposure.

Cheers for 2019 
and here's to lots more blogging.
