I have done most of my block but it's not happening tonight - maybe over the weekend....
Just one flower to stitch - flying critters to cut and add and the border....as I said MAYBE over the weekend.
I will update the side bar over the weekend in case you are finished and I have commented and you are feeling overlooked!!!
I really enjoyed playing with this block. Firstly piecing the background and making the most of the toile fabric.
Then it was time to sit and do the applique. I even tidied up my sewing table.
I'm very happy with the way it has turned out and am loving seeing the many other versions that have been completed, especially the bright version.
Now I have to decide how I will attach the diamonds on the next border. Will I use blanket stitch or will I have to bite the bullet and do some needle turn? Decisions, decisions......
Thanks Chooky and Susan as always for keeping me accountable.
As you can see my large flowers are not to the pattern, I fussy cut flowers from the fabrics I am using (thanks Chookyblue for the idea)
No more me being chased with that whip!! ... till the next time that is
Have a great weekend everyone....
Oh and I have a few things backwards on my centre block but I thought I would leave them like that as I did stitch this on my trip and there are a few things backwards (to us anyways) in Australia...like driving on the 'other' side of the road...your half moon is on the bottom, ours is on its side...and if you have never noticed...your toilets swirl the other way too! So that is how I have justified my 'backward' pieces!

I stitched some with Chooky on Sunday night and some with my friends Gail and Sheena tonight and now it is ready.
I have deliberately not sewn on the flower pot yet because I am not sure which will look best. It will be the last thing I stitch. I think then , I will get the best match as it will be a focal point of the quilt.
Lea " Fairy Floss Stitches" and I picked the blue but now I am not sure, may be the pink or something completely different... what do you think?
Happy sewing everyone....

It's the Assistant Whip Cracker here and I have just realised there are only 9 days left to get your July block done - that is only one weekend - for those long suffering "paid" workers - so, girls - how about it??? Can we get a 50% return??? - we are at about 10% now...and we only have a few months left to "catch up".
You will see Chookyblue has been commenting - but she's taking it a bit easy this month and is relying on me to get some results - so please help me out!!!
Will this help???
