My Creative Space


Second top finished!



I left a few of the squares whole instead of piecing as they are just too lovely to cut up.
Really happy with how it is looking.


Today I'll be working on the backing. This one will have a pieced back. I removed one of the rows as it was so much bigger than the other and time is not my friend, so that will go on the back, along with some scraps left over. Have heaps of fabric left.

In other news...hubby is on his way to Melbourne.
In case you have been living under a rock for the last 6 months, AC/DC start their Australian tour tonight, and hubby just had to go. Seriously a massive fan. Not creepy massive, but massive enough that he tried to get tickets to the Brisbane concert too. Good thing he didn't get them or he'd be on the couch for a month. He also wanted to name our only boy Angus...didn't happen!! Me? Not a fan. Have an understanding and appreciation for them. And I like to stir hubby up! 

So here is 'our' AD/DC song. He used to sing it to me when we were, mmm, dating if you can call it that! Check it out! They are so young and now they are so old lol! xox

Love that quilt top - and love the other one too!

Kirsty said...

It looks great. I struggle with cutting into favourite pieces where the pattern is large too. Best reserved to bigger piecing I think.

Nothing like a spot of the ol' head banging to relive a 'yoof'. Quilt tops are the bees knees!

Kate said...

Wow, that is one gorgeous quilt. I love how by leaving a few of the squares whole it makes it look a bit random. X

Another beautiful quilt. The big pieces look very effective. I'm with you, I'm really not with the whole ACDC thing either.
