I had too little of each colour to make a "back" in a solid colour, so I decided to go on with the random of the triangles on the front and I cut all my pieces into strips and now I'm busy joining them together. (the wierdness of quilting - take a good piece of fabric, cut it up into pieces and then sew it all back together again??)
So far I've joined the strips into groups of 3 or 4 pieces and I put them up against the batting with pins to see if it was long enough to be the back of the quilt. It fits!! so now I can finish this off and then the sandwiching will start. One thing at a time!
When I was doing the Sampler Quilt 2013 with Laura Knownes at Craftsy she said in one of the episodes that quilting 'was never meant to be a race' and that you should enjoy the process it took to make the quilt and they stuck in my head and I have to remind myself of these wise words every now and then. I am just as guilty with the QAL that I'm hosting, but we must really stop putting a time onto when it 'must' get done by. I know, I know for some that means never getting anything done, but for me - and I only speak for me - I'm plodding along and enjoying it.
Anyway onto more happy sunshine things -
