A finish...

..this afternoon I managed to finish the flimsy of the Charm Square Sampler Quilt!! Woo Hoo!!
I am so very happy with it....and super happy I managed to get the blocks all the size they were supposed to be!! Bonus!!! Now to decide on the backing and the big question....do I attempt to quilt it???
....later this afternoon after a few domestics...best not to leave the washing out on the line another day I thought...I completely forgot it last night and it was frosted this morning...lucky we had a beautiful sunny day!!....anyway I got to make another block for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler
this one is the Friendship Star...I think we made one of these for the Underground Railroad Sampler, no I have just checked and we didn't, we did do some of the triangle blocks the same way though, anyway enough of me waffling, I have also started another block
Grace's Friendship....it needs sewing down and trimming....I found it already traced when I opened the book, so must have planned to make it for something else and then changed my mind! Love a bonus!!
the supervisor enjoyed his walk this morning...I was laging behind a little!!
Well had better go and start dinner
Happy sewing.

OMG that charm square sampler is awesome! Very striking. I do love black contrasting with bright colours. Underground Railroad sampler? Is it now a pattern? I was going to make one myself just using various blocks known to have been used from a couple of books I have. It is a wonder the washing wasn't frozen solid on the line lol.
