This week little son has been off school for half term, so we have been out and about or watching films wrapped up in the warm, when the weather has been horrible.
On Tuesday we had a trip into Solihull to buy some Christmas presents – yes I know it’s a bit early but it is the only time we have to buy his fathers present without his dad being around.
On Wednesday we had a trip to Baddesley Clinton, which we have not visited before even though it is only down the road from where we live.
Baddelsey Clinton is a moated manor house and well worth a visit.
We also visited Hatton Country World before coming back to Baddesley Clinton. http://hattonworld.com/. Little son has grown out of wanting to visit the farm so just enjoyed the shops, especially the old fashioned sweet shop. He also got some more ideas for Christmas presents for his brother and sister! We will be going back in a couple of weeks for their Christmas craft fair.
So to this weeks quilt idea;- One Block, Secondary Patterns I know not a very good name but that describes what it is.
The above measures 54″ by 72″, obviously this can be made larger or smaller as required, with or without borders. The block size is 18″ so only 12 blocks are needed for this layout.
