Yay

Yay i am up to date, well for a little while anyway and only on this quilt everything else is soooo not up to date. So here's my finished panel
Crappy photo sorry.
Now i have to ponder about the next block because if someone were to offer me chocolates or a cheese board i would go for the cheese board without even thinking so maybe i will applique a chunk oops wedge sounds better of cheese. Anyway if i ponder too long i will be behind with this month as well.

Happy New Year to everyone

...and i just had to add, soooooo not a fan of cutting out all of those little squares. At least their all done now.

Love cheese, too - but chocolate would win most of the time. Unfortunately, it doesn't always like me!! I'm not looking forward to all that cutting, but I'm enjoying the applique so want to get the quilt finished!!

Susan said...

Go for the cheese - maybe some olives as well?? I'll be sticking with chocolate (yummo)

Pepe said...

Ep! It was so familiar to me... for a while I thought I posted on somnambulism! :) Nice strip! :)

Kris said...

Yes! The cheese is an excellent idea! (Might do that one myself.)

I think your photo is pretty good. It seems a very long 7.5 inch strip is quite difficult to photograph!

cheese sounds good..... the little pieces took me ages to cut... but great once they are done...

Wooohoooo...loving this strip Linda! Well done on getting up to date too...first month down! I would go with YOUR favourite things, so cheese will be perfect. I've done the chocolates...of course :)

I pondered over the chocolates, too....I like chocolate, I just don't eat those ones that come in a box very often. Usually it is a Hershey's Kiss or a Dove's mini.
