I finished sewing the 2 inch square blocks to the Friend-Sheep wall hanging this morning. Yesterday I raided my scrap bag to find the material,gosh no wonder we are in love with those 5inch charm squares. Cutting the two inch squares took quite a while. Mind you if I had just used a couple of strips of material that would have been far quicker,but the theme for this year at Kainga it to use it up. I only made one real alteration to one of the blocks. The July block was celebrating the 4th of July but I decided to make it a bit more Aussie. Thanks to fellow blogger Dzintra who helped out with the "Christmas in July" theme. I hope to get to the shops this afternoon to get some wadding. Then the fun part of quilting starts.
The other week at Good Sammy's I saw some new tea towels and decided to jazz it up a bit with some applique. Doesn't it match my milk jug.
I have gone way out of my comfort zone and entered a quilt in the "Weekly Themed Quilt Contest" over at Quilting Gallery. I will let you know tomorrow which quilt I have entered and the voting details. Wish me luck.
