Joseph’s Coat Quilt A Long – part 1

Finally something to show.  After ordering the Kaffe Fassett jelly roll online from the US, I just knew the boat would be slow, or the camel would stop for a long drink, but I didn’t quite expect the parcel to go via Sweden to Singapore.  The pigeon finally landed, but no jelly roll – it was on backorder.  This would have to be one of my pet annoyances with overseas/online ordering.  If I had known this I’d have cancelled the order and sourced it somewhere else.  Grrrrrr.

I don’t know whether it is the heat, humidity or the cr*p glue, but the whole process has been quite tedious.  The first lot of petals got ditched, but I’ve managed to finish 24.  I’m now unsure whether to be picky about the colour placement or just stitch them randomly.   Might have to make some more and have a play around.

After all my good intentions, I don’t expect to keep up, but it’s a start…sighJoseph' 001

I just love your petals and the colours are gorgeous so was worth the wait for the jelly roll.

Look forward to your progress-enjoy the process.
