Charity blocks and some Friday Night Sewing.


Yesterday I received my material from Simone to make up two blocks for a charity quilt. I was given the task of making two blocks for boys. For the block on the left (Courtyard Square) I was given the centre piece and the blue/yellow material used in the flying geese. For the one on the right (Around the Rosie) I was given the centre piece and the green/blue stripe for triangle squares. Most of my material is very feminine but I did manage to find enough boyish colours. I even managed to get a Beagle in there. Simone has a beagle so I thought this was very appropriate. They have just been posted and will be winging there way back home to Simone.
Tonight I will be involved in the Friday Night Sew-In. I have plans to use the first pattern which has the checked border. I have chosen the brown print to go into the centre.
I would like to thank Anita who was kind enough to be my photographer today. I lent my battery charger to Ainsley and Julian who are still on there cruise.
I will be back tomorrow hopefully with a nearly finished table runner. Enjoy your evening.
Happy days.

Your blocks are great for a boy. Well done.
I am just having a coffee break from my "SEW IN". I am putting together a QAYG. First time I have made one and it is fun.
Happy Stitching

I am not usually a lover of print fabrics - I prefer solids or ones that 'read' as such BUT, I am absolutely in love with the fabric you have chosen to work with. Can't want to see the finished piece.
You did a great job on those blocks for Simone and the dog fabric is perfect.

Love the blocks, Bev! Can't wait to get them, to put them to the other ones I got. The beagle is so cute! Sorry I can't keep it *LOL*
