Despite all that has been going on, I managed to find some time today to complete the Oakshott HST Quilt. I have been using this quilt to practice the concentric circle quilting pattern, for which I will use on the substantially larger Green Is Underrated Quilt.

Last time I posted about this quilt I mentioned that I was having issues with the quilt not laying flat near the center. Well I found out later that something went wrong with the thread tension. Had I noticed at the time I could of un-picked things and started again, however by the time I noticed the quilting had been completed. In the end I decided to reduce the size of the quilt to get rid of the issue. This has all been a good learning experience for me and I am confident that with the practice I've had, the Green Is Underrated Quilt will be a success! That will be March's project.

P.s. this week I will make a start on the backing fabric for the King Sized Bed Quilt.
