‘Celtic’ is complete!

The first in the series for 2015 Table Runners, at the monthly class with the PP group at ‘Patchworks Unlimited’. This one is designed by Zoe Clifton. Once again the background colour does not photograph correctly, the greenish tinge at the left is the closest to it’s actual shade. What I enjoyed with this project was the challenge of making my own bias, and actually finishing it!

Pastel Tessa talks about ‘procrastination’ in her latest blog post, I know I certainly procrastinate when it becomes report writing time, I wonder if not finishing projects is a form of procrastination?

Finished it! This one now doesn’t belong in the list of UFO’s! An easy table runner to construct (using the ‘Accuquilt’ half hexagon die), and quilted with straight lines. A project of the PP’s.

This reminded me of childhood summers spent at the beach gazing out across the water at the horizon. Some days the water was dark and stormy, others a clear calm blue, or whipped up and foamy on a hot north wind day.

It is not an easy task to name a quilt. It can be as easy as putting a pin in a dictionary, or as hard as getting centres to meet in a mariners compass! What helps you come up with names for your quilts?
