If you can't beat them...

...give them something to do!

I am juggling quite a few quilts at the moment, mostly in my head, but these Brit Bee beauties needed laying out for all to see, and doubled up as some apres-tea fun...

Am I the only one thinking 'redrum'?
As with Constellation, I am going to use 9 blocks on one side, and 3 on the other, along with a siggy block to make another double-sider.

I am adding the siggy block to tomorrow's To Do list, so that I can hoop it up ready to embroider all our names together for posterity.

  4. Looks cool together, hope you get your progress tonight/tomorrow. And I have a slight phobia of twins, that has a lot to do with that film, your angels don't look murderous though, so i think you're safe, they don't have access to hatchet, right?!?! ;o)

  18. Redrum...I've never been able to watch it all the way through - way too scary! Your girls, on the other hand, are beautiful as is the quilt! I love the idea of embroidering all your names on for posterity. Will also be helpful when the mind goes.

  21. The blocks look great all laid out together. A very effective quilt, well done! Cute kids. Are the girls identical? In one photo one twin appears quite a bit taller than the other. Good to see they are helpful!
