Possum Magic is almost over!!
It's hard to believe there are only two more borders to go before our quilts all arrive back from where they began!
Border 5 had me adding to Sharon's Quilt, which began with this gorgeous centre!
It is a gorgeous scrappy Dresden with the teeniest hexagons I've ever seen......aaaaaand all fussy cut!! WTF!!
When Serena added these Granny Square blocks (also teeny tiny) a couple of borders back I had my AHA moment....I would add a square based block border to repeat the theme depending on what Jo and Jane did.
Luckily for me neither went for squares and in the meantime I settled on the Jacob's Ladder block.
I initially made two blocks with white running through the centre for the ladder but it wasn't right?
Change it to a bright contrasting Solid and now we're cooking!
As in previous rounds I managed to F*&%$ up the orientation between the floor and the machine but luckily I posted this late night photo to IG and Wendy Possum spotted it for me before I mailed it.
A quick unpick and a few Mother Hallelujahs and it was fixed and on it's way to Alice
It really is a beautiful quilt with ,I believe well over 300 different fabrics in it!
I'm in love with this Emily Herrick Rustique print....and purple it seems?????
And Anna Maria Horner's True Colours I think were made just for me....I don't care what you all say they are mine mwahahahaha
I currently have Wendy's beautiful quilt.....and I'm stuck...hopefully that will pass real soon...but I seem to do my best work under pressure...SIGH
