At the request of younger son (he’s only 44 bless him) This WHIP is well on it’s way. I first tried to take illustrations from the original books, but for various reasons that was unsuccessful, so I then went to the web and pulled off some kids’ colouring pages, which have worked well for redwork panels I think, although I had to enlarge some. It’s now reached the stage of being backed; because it will be used as a lap quilt rather than on a bed, I’ve cheated somewhat and used fleece for the backing and now it’s ready for some free motion quilting………
The name of this quilt is a result of far too much interaction with far too many surgeons over the last 3 years, and a tribute to their fantastic treatments. It goes as follows;
1 Notice a problem – in this case an overflowing sewing room
2 Diagnosis – a growing lump of offcuts from various projects
3 Decide on a solution
3 Plan a course of action
10 Contemplate a serviceable end result
I’m so pleased with myself, I’m planning two more, one will be a bookcase quilt, the other another hexie quilt.
