Now I knew , and probably you did too , that I would not be able to resist trying the Quilt-a-Long with the new fabric, so - here are 4 blocks from yesterday. I made blocks 1-3 and then jumped to Block 9 as it seemed to be the easiest one and by 9 pm I was looking for easy. The photo doesn't do justice to the colours unfortunately. One of the penalties for living in an old house with walls 3 foot thick is that the lighting is dreadful!! When the sun shines (!!!!) I can take photos outside again !
My very good cyber friend, Jeannie in Florida, offered me some of her 'scraps' to help out my meagre stash for the Chunky Churdashes blocks (being a fairly new quilter its not even a stash really, more of a big bundle by most standards!!) Now - I am not too proud to jump at a chance like that, in fact I was very grateful and looked forward to receiving a small packet of offcuts !! A parcel arrived yesterday full of YARDS of fabric in huge pieces, this is just some of it
Thank you so very much, Jeannie, you're a star!!!
Don't know if I'll have a chance to Blog again before our 5am start on Saturday and not even sure when I will get connected again, but I hope to talk to you again around 18 June when I get back home Now though, I am off to shorten some trousers for DH (!!) not the kind of sewing I like - and then make some sort of a start on the packing or we won't be going at all !!
