I was hoping to have the finished patchwork quilty thing to show tonight, but even with my little helper, it is still not ready. I've been working on it for most of the day, with a dog walk in the middle to get me out for an hour or so. I am still walking my friends dog, as he is not up to being dragged around, with a gammy arm which he is not supposed to be lifting. She is a very strong dog.
Anyway, I'll show you where I am up to now. I am using a duvet cover costing £1 from a charity shop for the backing. Here I am trying to cut the edges off to separate the two sides. Heidi nearly got a manicure in the process.
Next the top, placing it almost to the edge on two sides, then trimming the excess on the other two sides. Next I set about pinning the layers together with safety pins. I had to buy a packet from the 99p shop because I didn't have enough. I found they weren't going in very easily, they were sticking in the carpet.
Have a nice weekend. Toodle pip.
