Green Squares or the Bugger Off Breast Cancer Quilt.

After finishing the last quilt featured in my last psot, it didn't take long for me to select fabric for my next quilt. Green, lots of green. We received the unexpected news that a dear friend up here has breast cancer. It was all very sudden, one Friday she was at the tavern after school drinking her usual diet coke, then that Monday she was in Perth having all sorts of tests. But this blog isn't about her journey fighting this horrible disease, I'll say no more except she is doing okay. Daz's folks have arrived in town and are staying in ther caravan out on our front verge. Its lovely to see them but it has meant that my sewing cutting area has been relocated to the top of the washing machine!!

I am making Mrs D a lap quilt. She likes greens, can you tell? I made her this table runner last year, I didn't want to go stars, so went for squares. I'm thinking 25, 5 rows of five each. So far I have 12. I have had to break my ban of fabric buying and purchase some Kona for the backing. Its for a good cause!
