Churn Dash Update.

Last Saturday my friend Jeanie and I went a drive to Mingenew  (a 90km round trip) to pick up my SAL Churn Dash quilt from the longarm quilter...

I would have liked to have used the brown the same as the sashing for the binding but didn't have enough. After going through my box of fabrics there was nothing suitable there either so decided to use the backing fabric as I had plenty of that....

Just need to put the label in the bottom left hand corner on the back and finish sewing on the binding... Should be done in time for Chooky's Churn Dash SAL deadline the end of October... 

Must away now and do some sewing...

Happy Stitching and stay safe.

Finally my FNSI Post....

I've had no internet for a few days now but I've finally worked out how to connect blue-tooth to my laptop so now I can do a post.......

On Friday Wendy organised our FNSI , I always like these evening as I seem to get organised and get things done.... This week I quilted and finished two Quilts of Love...... Thanks Wendy...


It was so good to use up the few jelly roll strips and a FQ to make the quilts.

I've been digging through this box looking for fabric to do a binding....

So a must away now and sort it....

Happy Stitching and stay safe.

Hello Everyone!

This week I had two special visitors......If you've been following Janice and Mick on their travels around Aussie you will have seen they are now in the West and on their way down the coast and on their way they called into "The Block" for a visit.
 I have followed Janice's Blog for many years and have chatted with her on Chooky's great ZOOM meetings but it was lovely to finally met in person and her hubby Mick ......Enjoying a cuppa and chatting time passed too quickly before it was time for them to be on their way again.... Safe Travels.

Must away and get a project organised for tonight's FNSI with Wendy You can still pop over to sign up.

Stay safe and Happy Stitching..

Hugs  Maria ❤
