Quilt Top Progress & CTTY Winner

It's very remiss of me... forgetting that I hadn't announced a CTTY winner from the September Link-Up... naughty me...
~ Barb ~ You'll be receiving a little 'thank you' in the mail! Well Done!
Thank you so much to each of the ladies who joined in; it was a bumper month for link-ups, believe it or not!




Yesterday I sewed together the main part of my jewel-y quilt top... this is my favourite 4 x 4 layout for these blocks... I'm planning to add a single border & hoping that a predominantly dark fabric will look good, but that will be determined when I take it to the shop with me to look at options.
And no, I am not a whizz with my sewing - these are the first blocks I made, not the most recently featured strips!
Adding a border will make it about 60inches square.

Glorious weather here today - perfect for the Site Manager to do some sunbaking - (he thanks everyone for their concern) - & for me to do some secret sewing while there is a little quiet at home.
