I have finished four more blocks for Milly's Quilt. I think though they need another round of logs added to them though, just to make them a little bigger. And I have to order some of this white as I don't have enough in my stash. Looking good though. When I was laying these blocks on her bed for the photo, Milly walks in and says "what you doing Mummy?" and I replied "seeing how your quilt will look on your bed." And she answered "your making a quilt for me?" The element of suprise and amazement in her voice was like but you never sew quilts for me?!! Well Milly Moo, this one is for you!
I had a great suprise yesterday morning when I went out to pull the recycling bin out to the kerb after hearing the truck in the next street and realizing Daz had only put the normal rubbish bin out. A parcel from The Fat Quarter Shop had arrived and the dog hadn't barked to alert me! They had 40% off Kaffee the other week so I got 5.5 yards of the above. Just in time for me to use the deep purple in Milly's quilt maybe.
And a magazine and a Swanky honey bun roll. 40 x 1.5 inches wide strips. So nicely packaged, I'm not taking it out the plastic till I sew this one. I have it earmarked for a Chinese Coin quilt for a friends baby coming out later this year, make a change from all the pink and purple happening around here lately.
