We’ve had some lovely days in the last couple of weeks…
|This cow was very keen to have her photo taken!|
…but today isn’t one of them! The wind and I rarely see eye to eye when it comes to taking pictures of quilts and today we are, apparently, having gusts of 70-80mph so I’m not even going to attempt it and the photos are rather gloomy.
May’s colour for the Colour My World Challenge with M-R at Quilt Matters was aqua/cyan and last week I became possessed of the idea that this skirt, which I chanced upon in a charity shop, would be perfect for something…
By last Friday, I had got it into a 42″ unbound lap quilt and I was thinking of either adding some applique to make it a bit more interesting or cutting it up to make something else. But yesterday, having had no great inspiration and no time to sew all week, I decided just to bind the edges and call it finished.

|front and back – which is fugliest?|
|this photo has the most accurate colour|
I’m not going to link this to the Colour My World Challenge today because M-R is leaving the linky open all year which means:
1. I still have time to make something I like in this colour-way to link up.
2. If you haven’t joined in already you check out the Colour My World Challenge and either start with June’s colour or go back and make something for the colours we’ve done so far.
