Phase Two

Thank goodness the knee held up. 

I was a machine today. 

1. One quilt top completed. 

2. Pieced backing achieved with leftovers of course. 

3. Binding ready to go. 

4. Go and rest the knee. Basting and quilting commences tomorrow. I will be spray basting and straight line quilting. 

Super excited to be this far. 

Layer Cake Lemonade

I've caught the bug. I decided to road test my knee and hit the sewing machine.

So I had a spare layer cake that was sitting around in my stash for a while. It's Hullabaloo by Urban Chiks for Moda. 

It has a great range of dark and lights for the free quilt pattern Layer Cake Lemonade. I love the pattern, the easy to follow  instructions and Kimberley's video tutorial. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for a fun afternoon.

The knee held up enough to get my rows completed and put the quilt up on the design wall. I will be back tomorrow to sew the rows together. 

Fingers crossed
