One Day Late

 I am one day late with my Churn dash SAL organised by Chooky, somehow it is October already.

I spent Thursday sewing away , quite a lot of unsewing happened too as I had trouble getting the triangle pieces going the right way. I finally finished after dinner and am very happy with the flimsy.

Now to get it quilted.
Two more Anthology blocks have been made

I think I have about 40 to go - seems a bit more obtainable now.
We have had some nice days for beach walks

This galah was watching a fissure in a tree where a rainbow lorikeet was nesting, maybe there is competition for homes here!

Ths galah was sitting on the perch watching what was going on.

I love this time of the year when I can go to the bush by the beach and pick a huge handful of freesias, they grow wild down there. I had some in each room of the house and the smell was wonderful.
The Aussie Hero Quilt is finished and in the mail, the request was for Aussie flowers and birds, plus the Rising Sun and Infantry badge.
The back was all flowers
This was an unfinished photo, I can't find a finished one!!
I spent one afternoon this making green blocks - the retreat ladies were given green strips from Kates stash and were asked to make blocks we can put together next retreat into a quilt. I added some extra green fabrics I had here.
I think that is me all caught up for now, I am off to sew some backing pieces together.
Happy stitching.

The blocks look great on point. Always a busy sewing room at your house.

Your churndash quilt top is fabulous! The pattern and the colors are so pretty. I can almost smell those freesias. I wish I had them at my house!

Love the idea of "make a green block"

I think you are actually 30 days early on your top - but well done - it looks great - I kept the drawing of the pattern in front of me when adding the pesky triangles and cornerstones. . very easy to get them wrong.

PS - wish we could have wild freesias.

Your churn dash looks wonderful Sue ... love those fabrics & colours you have used. You amaze me how you always get the Aussie Hero quilts spot on the mark. I wish I could pick handfuls of freisias from the beach - mine have all been bashed by the rain & are finished now - I love the smell of them. xx
