Plodding along....

I managed to squeeze in some time on the weekend to baste my Munki Munki Rainbow quilt only to find that my planned time to quilt was turned upside down. I ended up having to stay with L at a school friend's birthday party....actually I was called back as soon as I'd got home, so that was even worse! But that's another story.
So I've been catching an hour here and there these past two nights to quilt. I have 8 more squares left to go which is just under a third, so I'll probably finish it off by tomorrow night. We have Sew & Sew's tonight...and you can't really travel with your quilting, so I'll be piecing my Hope Valley 1/2 square triangle instead.
I'm really happy with it so far. I've chosen what I would term a medium sized stipple. This is working well and not covering the beautiful munki munki prints beyond recognition! I love so many of these blocks, the images in the centre and the solid colour to frame them. I've managed to mix in some gorgeous aubergine, salmon, tomato, duck egg blue, violet and what's become my staple colour, celery.
I can't wait for this one to be finished!


  1. Lovely! I agree, the stipple size is great. Can't wait to see it all done!

  2. You made a Munki Rainbow too! Great minds think alike! Yours in gorgeous, and the quilting is perfect.
