Happy dance..ok it is from a sitting position.
Anyways I just plodded along today and yipeeee.. I wanted to add sashing & border of the same fabric so it all floated (if you know what I mean) and am wrapt in the end result.
PS. Chookyblue, my total is now 7 blocks;)

I have only done the one block and it is out or order, but it was my favourite so I did it first.
I am so embarassed about even putting it up seeing many of you are if not up to date, but even finished, but if we dont blog, no one knows where anyone is up to.

So, today I put the next row together and this is what it looks like now:
My only peeve is that on the left of the red checked sashing between the rows, it is crooked - the green line shows up, if that makes sense. Go ahead, click on the photo and see!! So, do I unpick?? Sigh... this is why I don't like using stripes and/or checks usually...
Other than that, I am loving it :) And the little penguin is done, just needs its sashing... photo another day...

I finished the top! I am so excited I decided to go ahead and post the picture!!
I took a couple close ups so you could see the border fabrics a little better.
Now just to quilt it. I need backing fabric so it may be a little bit, but I hope not too long!!!
Thanks all - Jennifer
