Keeping up.

Hello my friends,
I am keeping up, which I am so pleased as my health has not been great.
This is my background fabric joined together for centre panel.


I have spent some time with my fabrics.
Then I fussy cut a few to get the right balance.
At the start of this quilt I cut my
peek a boo border,a border and binding from the same fabric.


A close up of a few.
The butterfly has the same wings as before.


Lady bird in different fabric this time.


A  dragon-fly showing her colours.


The birds remind me of the fantails 
that fly around here.


My finished centre with peek a boo frame.


I am looking at fabric to cut for the next border,
so should be ready for next month.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
