Block 55

Here's today's challenge. Looks very straight forward, but looks can be deceiving.........and the square in a square in a square is not MEANT to be right in the middle. I thought I had gone horribly wrong somewhere.

As I am so close to finishing all the blocks (12 to go) I decided to pin some blocks to a sheet to see what the end result will look like and to decide on sashing and post fabrics. I think I will stick to a cream quilters muslin for the sashing and maybe a pink for the posts.

Block 22

I am enjoying a regular sewing group now on a Friday at my place - a great way to spend the winter months and give each other encouragement!!! Getting close to finishing the blocks in this quilt, but a long way from finishing!!! Have to choose sashing, block and border fabrics, the backing and I have decided that as it has all been hand pieced I should continue and hand quilt it!!! (Very nervous as I have never done that before)
Anyway, that is all in the future, so here is my latest block (I have decided I HATE paper piecing!!!!)

Block 59

Today I had a few fellow quilting friends around for an impromptu chat and sew session. We enjoyed it so much it may become a regular Friday afternoon thing to keep us going through the winter months. Here is todays' block!

Block 09

I was lucky enough to find a scrap of this Liberty fabric (which I have used before and run out of) at my favourite fabric store this week, so teamed it up with purple and white to make this block.

Block 40

Thought I'd do a quick one today...............square in a square, in a square, in a square. Then an easy 9 patch and it's done!!
I must attach all my blocks on a sheet to see how they look as I only have a few to go and I will have to choose sashing and post fabric....!!
