Scrap Bin.

I can't believe that after making 80 blocks from the scrap bin, the bin does not seem to have gone down very much at all. It is slightly less dense but still over flowing.

The blocks were seven and a half inches so have made up to a fair size quilt top. Just a little border all the way around and then to sandwich it with wadding/batting and backing and I might just have another quilt for my favourite charity Siblings Together.

Probably just straight line quilting on my trusty sewing machine. I do so like this mini shadow block, and such fun to make. The centres are 5 inches and are surrounded by 2 inch strips of grey and white. to make them look like they are floating.The scrap bin must have gone down a bit even if it does not look like it.

80 Blocks sewn together.

 Susie is the mama of the month and has asked for 3  10 inch nautical blocks in these colours, so the next job is to get them in the post.

I am very late blogging this week as the weather has been so good that Mr M and I have been trying to sort out the garden a bit. We had a lot of work done on the cottage and sad to say workmen are no respecters of the garden, and how do you hide a huge oil tank.?

On that note it's time I sorted out the backing for the new quilt.

Keep safe and keep stitching..................Doti...
