Quilt number 2 - Done and dusted!

It's finished!
The red quilt (that was supposed to be green) is now finished.It was based on Louise's lovely pattern. However, as I have issues with following instructions I had to modify it (after a little mummy tantrum).
I cut out the big squares on the floor in front of the tele (silly, I know) and cut them out the wrong size. Had said tantrum then hurt my brain trying to work out how to make the outside bits fit.I think it works. As I'm still on the quilting planet of "make it up as you go along", it's a bit on the wonky side. But hey, wonk is good - right ?!?!?It's now thrown on the couch when not being dragged around the house by the "Quilt Ninja"The next quilt is cut and ready to go.
A cot quilt for the amazing Corrie to be sent to Queensland flood victims. I hope it looks OK when finished and makes someone smile!!
If you would like to be involved too check out Corrie's blog Retromummy.I would put her lovely little icon thingy on my blog but couldn't follow the blogger instructions on that either. I wonder if there is a support group for those who can read, take in and then forget/ignore/stuff-up instructions ......
