Yay, my bits & pieces are a finished quilt top!
It's been a great project to do a bit here & a bit there, over the last few months.
'Sunshine & Daisies' is from The Red Boot Quilt Company... Toni designs such fun & achievable projects... & bonus, she's Australian.
The quilt is 65inches square... I was just in need of something fun, easy & cheery... this fit the bill perfectly... it's off to the quilters this afternoon.
I'm sorry the pics aren't too good, for some reason it was just tricky getting decent pics this time.
A few months back I shared that my Patchwork group are doing a Friendship Mystery Quilt... round robin style, so we each end up making a block for each other lady, in their colour/style choices.
We each wrote up a card featuring our own preferences, samples & requests on it... many of us also provided yardage of our preferred backgrounds or a feature fabric. That card & the fabrics go in a bag, & that bag is given around month by month, by our co-ordinator Sue. Sue also gives us the instructions for the blocks.
We give our sewn blocks & the bag back to Sue... she keeps the blocks stored for us... so we never see what else has been made. When we each have sewn a block for each of the other 17 ladies, we'll have a special event in which we'll each be given all the blocks made for us... hope all that makes sense!
I don't want to share full block pics here, but I think I can get away with sharing a little of what I've sewn up to now... I've only found one block so far to be quite hard, & it's certainly been interesting to work with some of the colour choices. I'm learning a lot as I go, that's for sure.
Bye For Now!
