Sunday sentiments



I have been given some lovely charm squares by Tania and Trish, so thought I would get some white fabric and  use them for enders and leaders - I think that is the correct terminology - so they are here ready to go
all set....


this is the fabric and goodies I got at the show to start on the next Aussie hero quilt - the request was for Indian continent bold colours and elephants....

Oh boy!! My first seam and I have the fabric around the wrong way!!! So some unsewing has to happen!

Got a little carried away...the enders and leaders I have with me are done.....

and ironed and ready for the next step in the process! I didn't mean to do this today, just to have them nearby, but ............they actually go together quite quickly! I am thinking this could head to a postage stamp type quilt, but we shall see....

and the quilt is underway, I am having trouble getting the sides even, working on half the dining table here is not ideal, so think I will leave it until I get home when I can put it on the big table...there is an inch difference between the bottom and the top...had a woops when trimming I think! Once I manage that I am appliquéing elephants on to the wider strips...hopefully they will look ok, then they will get the orange ric rac on their legs, should be good as it has little bells on it. Nothing like a musical quilt!!  Lol!!
Happy sewing!
