These easy 3 1/2" blocks. The final pieces in the jigsaw.
Of course, the hard part was trying to make sure that I got the rest of the outside blocks in the right place and facing the right way, but....
The quilt top is finished!
I'm delighted with it. Now I just have to decide on a backing fabric, baste it, quilt it, bind it and label it. I'd really like to have it complete by Christmas....... but at 63" square it is quite a lot to manhandle though my sewing machine, so I'll just have to see how I go.
This one (using up the left over blocks and trying out a quilting idea on this 19" x 29" baby quilt).
Isn't it brilliant what a variety of items you can make from some fabric so long as you have some time?

Now, to the sewing. This was my version of Aves week 43 - a much simplified version that still didn't go together very well!
Fun to try, but I'm not such a fan that I'm planning lots more of them.
It seems late (only three more weeks to go!) to be introducing another fabric, but I bought this from Creative Quilting recently and love it. Admittedly, leaves rather than feathers, but I love it!
I'm thinking of how to quilt it now - and putting off basting it!
I've also delivered 13 quilts to Project Linus this week so it really was a week of varied activities!
Hope that you've been enjoying some sewing or crafting time too!

However, I've got another Aves block ready to sew and some fabric basket / bowls begging to be finished, so I'll happily be back at my sewing machine tomorrow!
