Saturday I spent the day putting on the sashing to my "Country Themed" blocks. It took quite a lot of time, as I ended up doing a lot of frog stitching. Couldn't make up my mind which layout I wanted. Finally ended up with something I was happy with, so Saturday ended with everything done except the final border.
This morning I got the last border on and have half the quilting lines marked. Just giving my back a rest, then back to the marking and then to piece the backing fabric and on to the pinning out....yuck.... not my most favorite part of quilting. I hope to have it ready to machine quilt by the end of the day, so that's it ready for tomorrow. With a bit of luck you may just see a finished photo by the end of the week.
My idea of using blue and cream and red and cream homespun checks flew out the window as soon as I got to the fabric store. Not one in stock, then I thought oh well blue homespun check with a matching blue Kona. Had them in my trolley ready to go to the cash register when I spotted the perfect piece of fabric, the bonus it was on special for $2.99 a yard. So I got the backing and border fabric for under $9. I ended up with colours I would normally never use. I'm a blue, red lover and these are what I'd consider drab, after saying only a few days ago on someone else's blog that I don't like drab colours.... go figure......
Time to share another Bronwyn Hayes block.
I'd better get back to stitching the rest of these blocks, otherwise I won't have anything to share with you.
P.S. I've just changed from dial up to DSL Internet and now every time I come to blogger I have to sign in, even though I ask it to remember me. I know there's something you can do so that your ID is permanently remembered, but I can't for the life of me remember what or where it is. So if you know please let me know, this is so frustrating having to log in constantly.
