I have been very under the weather since Tuesday night with a flu like virus and last night my temp spiked at 39.1C again so hopefully I am on the improve. Why does every little illness seem so much more intense as we get older?
I have made another quilt top and have it sandwiched together ready to quilt and write up instructions to so that they can be available for download. I have not started quilting it yet as I don't think it will be much good for my health at the moment. I am calling this 60 inch square lap quilt my Night and Day quilt because of the split colours in the embroideries and also the contrast in the fabrics. The quilt is embroidered with the Black and White Florals set of designs from Hatched in Africa. It is a set of only 5 designs but I was able to get the 9 blocks out of it.
Hopefully the instructions will be on the blog early next week. I am not rushing this.

Joan has also made a quilt using the layout that I used for the Pretty in Pink elephant quilt. You can find that project on this page and the link for download is there. This quilt layout is very useful if you have a set of designs to use that are of varying widths as you can choose which ones to go in the horizontal blocks and which ones to go in the vertical blocs.
Marylynn has sent in a pic of her Aristocat quilt using the Hatched in Africa's Aristocats set of designs. I love the black background color. If you are using any black fabric please remember to prewash. One of my friends found that out the hard way this week.
