Some blocks and a finish

 Another 8 365 challenge blocks this week!  I know that's not much of a catch up, but at least I'm not sliding backwards still!  I'm up to the 25th June now, and quite happy with my progress.
 More pretty blocks!  I'm enjoying the journey of this quilt, although I still have no idea what I will do with a quilt that is going to be so large.... apparently the blocks we've made already are sufficient to cover the top of a double bed!
 The finish is the Project Linus quilt that the girls started.  Didn't they do a good job?

Here it is in its fully bound glory.

We have our local Project Linus coordinator coming along to the Richmond and Kew Quilters next week - perfect for handing this quilt and a couple of others that I've made over to her.
Here it is showing the backing, which was two printed cot quilt  panels.

Off to make some more blocks and a plate bag, ready for DD2 to go off to Guide camp later this month.  She's shopped my stash and chosen something - and chosen fabric for the shoe bag needed once she moves up to secondary school too.  I'd better track down the cord that I know I've got somewhere!

Happy sewing everyone!


  1. I love the use of the bright batiks in your blocks. It is so sunny and light. The batiks are a good contrast to the angularity of the blocks.

  2. My girls had camping plate bags made out of tea towels so they could dry them in the bag on the walk back to their tent !

  3. Such pretty blocks Plum, they're all super!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
