July Schnibble

It's only 8 July but whilst others watched Andy Murray at tennis I quilted this lovely little quilt. I also sealed the new plaster with Nick and Lizzie. Unfortunately we didn't have any white emulsion so it's now shades of beach and lavender blue, but it is sealed. Today the plumbers are taking out one radiator completely and replacing another with a super duper radiator which will arrive in a few weeks hopefully, but as my question as to delivery date is being avoided, then probably August as the factory is now closed for July. They are installing the pipework today so it will be ready for the tiler next week and not hold up progress.
I used a new pantograph to quilt the Schnibble and I hadn't quite appreciated how large it was. The throat was only just big enough. I'll have to remember to reduce it next time. I also used some of my Ikea Britten Numbers fabric for the backing. The fabrics for the front are two charm packs of Simply Colour by V & Co. The binding was left over from my Simply Style quilt and was a good match for the turquoise patterned fabric.
I will be making a return to teaching patchwork on a Friday morning, but from Fiona's lovely log cabin. I plan to visit her this morning to finalise details. Now I need to phone the flooring gentleman to order some kitchen flooring for the tenanted property, do a small amount of food shopping and drop in on Fiona. The next Deckade the Halls step is released today so that will be on the cards for this afternoon.
