Unplanned August Sewing

Last Monday was such a cold and blustery day and I found myself with spare time ... what! ... after getting over the shock I pulled out my 4 'orange' pieces and also my scraps from the appliques. Lots of cutting later I have 51 little squares (spares in case 1 or 2 just won't do) for the diamonds ...


and laying out while I cut the next border, I left this as is sitting on the spare bed to sew together later in the week.


A message from DD on Wednesday meant extra visitors arriving Thursday and the spare bed was required. Some late night sewing after work and the 4 borders are sewn and pinned to the centre ... phew! Now on with the rest of August and admiring everyone's lovely colour combinations.

Love that border - the two together is like night and day!!

That looks so effective - probably convenient to have that push to make you sew it all together.
