The Borders are Done?

Now to quilt it.........I'm thinking I might stitch straight around all the yellow and stipple the coloured patches. This one will get a lot of use (and washing) so lots of quilting might hold it together well.

It's so much bigger than I planned too, no wonder Im dreaming 2 and a half inch squares!
Thanks again to everyone for your part in my new quilt.

October Assignment

I don't want you to think that I am jumping the gun, but I put my fabric in the mail yesterday. I wanted to give enough time for the envelopes to arrive in Australia and New Zealand.

I have posted the tutorial on my blog. I am sure that it is overly detailed for experienced sewers like you, but I thought that as long as I was writing a tutorial, it may as well be useful for new sewers too.
Here is the link:

Thanks so much,

Blocks for Brenda

I'm faster than a speeding bullet. Brenda's fabric arrived in this mornings mail and now i'm sitting down having my lunch before i head back to the post office with this little bundle.
Great fun whipping these up for you Brenda.

Hugs from Sue.

A glimpse of my quilt

I've been playing with my blocks lately but I hit a serious problem.
I didn't have enough background fabric to sash it all.
I'd bought the fabric in Bali when I went for a single day with my friend Bev.
What a good idea she had when she suggested we buy bigger pieces and divide it all between us when we got home.
A phone call, a few emailed photos and a couple of days in the mail and here is my flimsy.
Thanks for the fabric Bev.

I'm deciding about the borders now. Two or three, plain or pieced, do I insert cornerstones?
Help me please.
Thanks for all the blocks Bee Balmers, I love this quilt.

Hope you like my effort.
