I have added the sashings and now deciding if I should finish it off by adding a border just like the book or do it my way!!  I might just take a couple of days to think it over first.  :-)

Magazines fix!!!!

I asked Luke if he could get me a couple of quilting magazines while he was in Brisbane and he came home with these!!!  I guessed he must have bought all the magazines on the shelf!!  As they come in packs of twos or threes, I have four which are the same!!  LOL  Love these magazines!!!

I've added  the sashings but I don't think I have cut out enough strips for the remainder of the quilt!  May have to go digging into the scrap bin one more time! :-(  The book added triangles around the quilt.  But I don't know if I have the patience to do that.  I have to add at least a border to make it a single size quilt.  Thinking of doing some country applique on it.  Well, got to see how it goes after I've done the sashings!!

Scrappy Quilt

I finished piecing all the blocks and came up with this.  I will add sashings all around the individual blocks.  I took some time to do this because it was actually tiresome rummaging through the  scrap bin!! First, look for the right size of scrap.  Second, iron the scrap.  Third, use the scrap master ruler to cut the triangles and the squares!! :-(
Will start piecing the sashings together tomorrow.  It is much easier to use pieces of good fabric to make this as it took a lot of effort to cut out the triangles and squares from scraps!!  No, I don't think I will make another scrappy quilt from the scrap bin!! :-(

Floral Fantasy

This is what I have done so far in this project.  The leaves and flowers are not as nice as it should be!  Can't get the curves quite right!!  It's taking up quite a bit of my time because one, the flower petals are small and two, my skill is limited!!  LOL  BUT I am trying hard to get them just right!!  I am working my way up so will do it section by section.
