Firstly, the shawl is finished and blocked. I changed the pattern slightly so achieve the fit I wanted. I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this one.
Next, lots of reverse sewing. That disaster quilt just has to come undone and I have to be so careful unpicking it because all the seams are on the bias.
I have worked out how to save it, with the help of my friend Angela. Lots of text messages later we agreed on this mock-up I came up with.
The extra squares in red on the body are appliqued in place and although the piping in the picture is actually masking tape I was able to get some fabric fairly near this colour. I intend to bind it in this as well.
And whilst in the fabric shop I saw this display of Riley Blake fabrics.
I have just the quilt for it in my mind, I just have to draw it up and work out how much fabric I need.
