Opps sideways picture!
You get the idea! I keep finding UFO's in the pile that is my sewing space which is jammed in the corner of my lounge room. So I stuck a border on it and now its a flimsy finish - a lap or kids sized quilt top made from left over sashing strips (see below) and I spy fabrics.
A proper finish! These are the I Spy four patches that my friends help me make (and donated fabric for) back in March. Finally its quilted and bound. I literally picked out the dark blue and black bindings from my scrap binding collection and sewed them on. While I was there I had a bit of a clean out ... no point holding onto 5" of scrap binding ... cut them into 2.5" squares instead!
I found this wonderfully loud lime green and blue spot in my stash and it worked perfectly as a border on this kids quilt. I love the fact that happened...because the rest of the quilt is out of the stash as well! I have purchased some backing and which just needs piecing and then this top goes in the pile for quilting. While my shoulder is much improved, I am not game to do any quilting and upset it again after months of discomfort and physio.
And this is the view from the top of Mt Arapiles, where you can see the canola flowering in the paddocks below. This was a short walk only...you can drive to almost the top of this mountain, which is perfect when the weather is threatening to rain!
Spring has arrived! Wattle flowering in the Mt Arapiles State Park.
Happy quilting Sue
