A Collage of my First Two Blocks!!

Whilst fiddling about and seeing how my colours looked together, I made a collage of photos of my first two completed blocks! I spent a couple of hours at the Sydney Craft & Quilt Show on Saturday and was terribly inspired by the beautiful quilts on display! Now on to block 3!!!
I have to say also how great it is to see everyone finishing off their blocks and blogging about them so constantly! It makes us want to keep up (even when it is sometimes hard to fit everything in to our busy days) and I'm really looking forward to seeing the end result for eveyone! It really is wonderful to see all the finished projects and everyone has used such different colours and schemes for their blocks, so they should all look very individual when sewn together! Pleased to see we made 100 for this weekend .... that should keep Miss Chooky very happy!!
