When I’m not running and reading running blogs I can usually be found quilting or reading quilting blogs (work and Twitter also fit in there somewhere). I have recently finished this quilt for a friend.
The pattern is a Single Irish Chain inspired by this one and this one. The fabric is a jelly roll of 1930’s Playtime (2013) by Chloe’s Closet for Moda. I kept the black strips for the binding (which I did not get a good photo of).
The backing is an Ikea duvet cover. Unfortunately it’s not sold anymore, because I love it & would have bought a couple more for future quilt backings!
My friend, Suse, and I met in Sydney on our first day of university as undergrad Occupational Therapy students nearly 19 years ago (eek). She and her husband met here in the UK but now live back in Australia. They have just been back here visiting family so I made the trip to London to catch up with them and to give Suse her quilt. We also visited the poppy installation at the Tower of London which was incredibly moving.
Right, I’m off to parkrun. Normal blogging services to return shortly!
