I really cracked on today, and finished the lap quilt I have been making with the first set of 4patch blocks I made for Step 1 of the Orange Crush and then discarded because I didn't like the colours with my main fabrics. I'm pleased with this though; I used some leader/ender 4patches as well and managed to use the last of the very first wadding I bought, a polyester which I really don't like at all. I much prefer cotton wadding now. I used a fleece blanket which I bought very cheaply - £4 at Tesco - for the backing, so the whole thing cost me very little and is my very first scrap quilt. I decided to use it on the bed that Rosie - the laziest cat in the world - favours during the day. It'll be quicker to whip off and wash than changing the duvet cover all the time - if I can shift her fat furry bottom!! She took to it immediately.
This wasn't on my list of jobs for April so I'll need to get on with those now, though I'm doing pretty well. The black and white quilt is the slowest to make progress; I've kind of lost momentum as I've got interested in other things. A little personal discipline is called for I think! But then, there are all those interesting suggestions for my 'doctor' quilt to look at .... perhaps I'll look at those first!
