I've uploaded the pictures in the wrong order, I'm having a hard time coming to terms with the picture I want to talk about first is the one to upload last!
So, in reverse order, cause I'm too lazy to start again.
Ater I'd finished everything else yesterday, I made this little Katies choice block.
I've been looking for something to use up my rose bucket fabrics and I couldn't resist this one, I'll be making more of these.
Dear sons charm top acquired some new charms while my sister was visiting yesterday, I found these red skull charms in her smeggie collection. Sorry it's a poor pic, I snapped it on the fly!
I think they look pretty good in the autumn quilt. I'm sure he will like them. I got it made as far as these 4 squares, I plan to quilt as I go, so it's awaiting some wadding and backing. I may use an old blanket in this one, if I can find one, I'll go trawl the op shops after work tomorrow. Then anything I find has plenty of time to wash and dry before the basket gets filled on Friday evening!
What should have been first but is now last but not least!
These are the awful ebay charms my sister brought with her yesterday. None of them are nicely cut, they are all different sizes so we will have to do some cutting to try to rescue them.
There are twice as many of the blue/grey with small flowers, I may abandon that one for now as it is very thin, a much lighter weight than the other, or any thing I have here. I do have some floral pastels that will blend in nicely with the floral fabrc, it was a quilters cheating fabric, it looks like 2" charm squares and is actually very pretty, but in most cases only one square remains whole!
I was actually here looking for ideas when I found the Katies choice block and got side tracked.
If I add some of my pastels and maybe some of the blues left over from my plates.........?
I do want to try to rescue and use the blue and yellows, as they are very pretty.
Any suggestions anyone?
