my creative space - progress report

It's been a quilty kinda day here today. Quite fitting really given the weather is finally starting to feel slightly cooler.

So you might remember this pile from last week's creative space? Well here it is a week later

yellow + grey - progress

I'm not sure if it's finished yet and since I don't have a cot set up I have no idea if the size is right or not. I  have had moments of sheer joy piecing this in it's haphazard, 'a-little-bit-of-this-a-little-bit-of-that' way. And then at other moments I have been so stumped by indecision about what should come next that I was wishing for a pattern.

BUT I figure I must be on the right track since the Mr's response was along the lines of, "Wow. You should make it bigger because I really like this one". Not entirely sure if that was meant to be a reflection of all my previous quilts or not ....

Speaking of which this one was picked up from the long arm quilter, Suzanne (you may remember her handy work from such quilts as this) today.

shirt quit - quilted

Just a sneaky peek for now. The final reveal will happen once the binding is on. So don't hold your breath or anything.

For more creative spaces head on over to Kirsty's place.
