A recap on Ruby Ruby Ruby's back story.... Laughing Boy's parents celebrated their ruby wedding anniversary this year and I offered to make a quilt as a gift from us. My lovely MIL asked for something colourful with a solid red back and no noticeable quilting on the back! It was the fifth quilt I have made and I decided to try out flying geese. It took me aaaaaages and it was unpicked and resewn a gazillion times before I chillaxed and just got on with it. So, months late, it was finally finished and here's a photo of it in situ...

So in terms of lessons learned in its making, where do I start!!! Well, I learned the importance of accurate cutting that's for sure and of accurate 1/4inch sewing (my geese don't always fly in formation and some look like they've been on a pizza and cury diet!). I also realised that I needed to worry a little less about fabric choices, although this is still work in progress :).
So after a difficult start, Ruby Ruby Ruby and I have become firm friends.
