Second New Years Quilt.

OK. Lets try again. I have all the instructions, I have cut the fabric and made the OHS so, I can just as well make the quilt. Luckily I can always bribe Nkosinathi to do the B&B shift. So here I go,
1.  Make the OHS that were wrong on the first set of instructions.
2.  Do the lay out of the 9 blocks
3   Attach the side bars
4   Attach the top bars
5. Devise a border
6. Sandwich and quilt.

12:20  OHS done. Layout done and it is 16 blocks.  On my way to get the rows stitched. 40 deg Celsius in the sewing room. I wanted a sauna any way!

OK, This did not happen. Some rows done for the blocks but I'll have to learn how to do those nice red marker rings that is used on the forums to show other peoples mistakes by the cruel people.Piecing has lost its appeal completely. Pity. Expensive fabic, expensive bribes and waste of precious time.

Take a big breath. January has started in full swing!


  1. what does OHS stand for? Are those the Half Square Triangles (HST) from the Mystery quilt?
    Thank goodness for Nkosinathi! You get to quilt!
    Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out..

  2. OHS is lost in translation... I'd rather not explain.
