A finish and a new beginning

Yesterday I finished the latest block for the New Hegagon quilt...fixed up my woops!!
and today Mary and Jill came over and helped me put together fabrics for a Dresden plate...something I haven't made before. Twenty of us at the Port Arlington group have been asked to make a plate, we have been given two fabrics and use our stash for the rest.  Most of this fabric is from Mary and Jill, they wouldn't let me use batiks!!! All the plates will be put together in a quilt, and that will be the raffle quilt at the Port quilt show in November this year.
this will be a very summery block! Right I am off to do some more work on the Aussie Hero quilt.
Happy sewing.
