I was hoping to finish sewing all the segments together but I only made 3 blocks. I went out for lunch with my sister, send the car for wash and did some shopping for the house. This kind of day always make me wish there are more than 24 hrs in a day!!! As it is, 8 hrs is reserved for beauty sleep (much needed at this age)! LOL

Found some time to stitch all the strips together. I still need to iron and cut them into 21/2 inch segments. Lots more sewing to be done after that! I have always love this pattern! Very classic!! Simple and nice!!

Double Irish Chain

I have been so busy lately that I have not been able to do any serious sewing! So today, I thought I'd better get my act together and get started on making a quilt for somebody! I have a list of people who have asked me to make quilts for them! These are people I cannot say 'no' to! This one is for my niece, Andrea. She is looking for a puppy to adopt. So when I was in Perth, I bought these two printed fabrics with her in mind. I found the white printed fabric in PJ. Check out the prints! LOL

Back fr Perth!

Came back from Perth with all this loot!! Some of the stuff like the clown pattern, the little pots and the two reels of laces were pure find!! I bought them from second hand shops like Salvos (Salvation Army), Good Sammy (St Vincent de Paul) and Anglicare. The clown pattern is only 50 cents..all patterns intact! The purple lace..almost a full reel $1 and the black lace..full reel $2! The little craft pots..50 cents! All I could think was..'so cheap so cheap' even after conversion!! LOL

Finished the quilt top! Added three sashings and a border. I couldn't piece some of the green squares properly!! Tried to rectify it but couldn't! That's my only regret about this quilt!! LOL
