The last block

This is the last block completed.  So excited to have got it done so quick.  I start this when I got home from holidays at the end of May.  Dont know how Chooky talked me into it but thank you Chooky I have enjoy making this one.

Now to my Stitch a long friends.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.  It has kept me going to the finish.  I know I have to sew it all together but hopefully today and then I can show you my quilt top tomorrow

Remember this sneak peak

Here is the end result. Well Conni made this one with a little help from me and I made a smaller version of it (but not finished yet). This was made for a apron she had with some online stitching friends.

Very cute. Hope Tink likes it

FIS Paper bag swap.

Friends in Stitching are having a paper bag swap and this is what I received from Chookyblue.  Now what can I make out of two fat quarters and two lots of trim.  There was a violet crumble but that disappeared(oops).

Any hints????

Im on a roll

Still in the Garden.  I have block F complete too.

Time to rest in the garden would be nice, especially in spring time.  Beautiful flower, colourful birds and sun shine some day.  This is my favourite time of the year.
