Mini Wonky Geese block.

I was sitting there last night working on the second strip of wonky geese when I ran out of white fabric! I have a whole metre uncut of white and I thought the dots were the same size, but on closer inspection, realized that they aren't! Bugger! And here I was thinking I was so clever using up all my scraps of white. So I have turned this into a little mini quilt, its only 5 by 6 inches here. Perfect for a next swap maybe?! I have pulled out more fabric as the next ones I sew I'm going to a rainbow gradiation. The plan is to sew 2 quilts, one for me, one for my partner. One in the yellow, orange, red then one in a rainbow.

And I just had to blog this, it came home yesterday in Grace's bag. It was on display done for Mother's Day, a portait of their Mum and what she means to them. "Mummy likes to do sewing. She makes lovely quilts." Awwww, thanks Gracie!
