Matching colours........

Wow what a difference today....... This year we have not had a day under 34........today it is only just 27......feels like heaven......
The Bird on the Border has flown in and we are sewing away...... Actually not a lot of sewing for me yet but lots of prep work to keep sewing my 10 mins each day.......
 A quick trip to the Home Patch and a sale saw me getting the setting triangle fabric for the churn dash quilt..(plus some other treasures)... So that is cut along with the corner stones.... Also cutting some bindings.......
But colour coordinated drinks is the go...... 
Catch you later.....

10 mins in a sauna?????

Never been in a sauna before......

Another one bites the dust.......

Forcing my 10mins on each day has results..........as I have stayed inspired to get my top together............especially when you can see it coming together.......most days the 10mins turned into more...........
Started this one on the 1st.....finished the top this morning.......and it's only the 7th.......woohoo............
The blocks came from Googy Girls Traditional Nine Patch Swap..........
I posted about it here and here and here............that I could find..........
You can see Kerry's finished quilt from this swap at the bottom of this post.......
colour runs in the nine patches on the diagonal.........
I had a bundle of 1metre pieces that I cut into to make the filling blocks..........
gradually over the week it all came together..........
Its so exciting when you see this happening.........
And suddenly it was done...........
"Googys Nine Patch Quilt"...........
Ok onto another project.............that list is being smashed.............
maybe I can start a real new quilt..........
Catch you later......
