This morning I woke up with a bad back, something I do suffer from. I took some of my amazing special painkillers and got on with cutting out my fabric for the stained QAL that the amazingly talented Sarah is running.
This is the quilt we are making. I have used 10 FQ;s. There is some serious thinking to be done with placements on this on.
This is my block1 which uses all of the fabrics
I have cut in to my 'beach' fabrics and I am thrilled with the result.
It has taken me about 5 hours to cut everything out (yes really) but I knew that I needed to do it all in one go otherwise I might not get round to finishing it and I might have lost the design plot. This is my fault, as I was too lazy to follow Sarahs excellent instuctions and just started cutting. Morale of the story is to always read before you cut!!
My back now, after 5 hours of standing, appears to have completely siezed up, which is my own fault. But I am really pleased with what I have done.
Can't wait for the sashing instructions ....!
5 hours!!! You have earned a good long rest! Looking forward to seeing this one evolve - what colour will your sashing be?ReplyDelete
Five hours? You done good girl - its taken me All Day! Lol. Love your fabric must show Mr T he lives in flip flops :-)ReplyDelete
Sorry your back is bad - my back is playing up a little but I think it`s the cold and old age! Your quilt is going to be great!ReplyDelete
I love your fabrics, what will you be using for sashing? Sorry the back is playing you up, good job you have some of those magic pain killers, I know only too well how it feels. Take it easy, I did some cutting today but still have qhite a lot left to do.ReplyDelete
Oh I have a bit of that flip flop fabric!ReplyDelete
Hope the back eases soon.
take care of your self xxReplyDelete
Hope your back is better very soon, and I haven't even got round to thinking about starting my Stained Quilt. I am officially behind already. Bugger!ReplyDelete
Hope your back is better soon. I so want to join this quilt a long but I really need to finish some WIP's not add to them. I will, as usual be QAL all by myself probably 18 months after everyone else lolReplyDelete
5 hours? You're doin well lovely, I'm at 3 hrs total and I've only cut 3 out of 11 fabrics... and its giving me a sore back!! Hope you're feeling a bit better.ReplyDelete
best idea to do all the cutting at once - but it is hard on the back - hope it's straight now!!ReplyDelete
Oh you poor thing! I got a box made for my cutting mat to sit on top of my table which helps my back alot! Having a sore back is no joke! Hope it eases up soon. JxoReplyDelete
