20150427-152022.jpgAnd me? Well I achieved all I wanted to over the weekend.

From the MSG class last year, I wanted to get the four whirligig blocks cut out. I took along just a little bit of fabric for the purpose!

20150427-152157.jpgand cut out blades for all four

20150427-152439.jpgchose three of the four centres

20150427-152509.jpgcut out all 96 B triangles

20150427-152533.jpgand made choices for the 96 C triangles, but think I’ll have to lay out the blocks before making a final decision. The three fabrics at the top are my purchases for the weekend – proud of me??

I also made another “Alice’s Cross” block

20150427-152711.jpgand did a little more appliqué for the “Aunts’ Quilt” – show you when it’s finished.

So all in all, a very productive weekend all ’round! How was your weekend?

    OH and Meredithe, how could we be bored??? Love those bags!!! And that Millrose fat quarters wrapped, next to it is a blue and white one. Is that Liberty fabric? Next to it says something. But I wouldn’t have guessed that. Do you have any idea? Oh I want to make hexies! All those scraps I have would be good for em.
    Check you later and happy belated Anzac day, knew it was coming but, with everything going on with reno and flood, sort of missed it!

  10. I notice a Margaret Sampson George ‘margagon’ and some ‘Camelot’ circles from Trish Harpers pattern ! And one of your centres chosen for your whirligigs is Elizabeth, now that is a great choice with a name like mine !!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
