Incidentally, I really admire people who have a consistent sense of style - mine is a bit too open to influence, which means nothing in my house matches and sadly not even in the trendy way they call "eclectic". It's hard to acknowledge the fact that the height of my aspiration in the early 1990s was to have a black watch tartan duvet cover and matching lampshade - a bit like an old crush, sometimes you look back and think oooh, how could you?! As soon as I see a new fabric collection I like it more than anything else. So that's the reason for using up the Amy Butler: sorry, Tree Peony, I still love you very much, but it's time to move on!
one of the neater bits of quilting!
My main problem has been trying to square up the quilts before binding them. Since all the lines and angles in my piecing are off I just could not get it to look right, and began to fear that something like this would happen.

In the end I had to pick my best straight line, and square up everything else by it, and hopefully the sprogs won't mind.
