At last I’ve found a use for those black and white squares collected way back in 2004. I attended the Southern Cross Quilters Retreat in Auckland, and we all swapped fabric squares and signature blocks. After languishing in a bag all this time, I am finally putting them to good use. Of course, when I started on this current project, I found that I really didn’t have enough. My quilting pen friends kindly sent me some squares from their stash, and I went out and bought some extra black and whites as well.
I’m keeping it simple, and have assembled lots of 4 patch blocks. This will be for my daughter and her hubby, who will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary later this year. To give it a bit of a zing, I’m using lime green as sashing. Will decide on the borders (or not) after the top is assembled. Although this would be classed as “secret sewing” as it is a gift, in this case I don’t need to worry about talking about it on the blog. My daughter home must be one of the few which does not have a home computer, and even if she did, I don’t think she would bother reading about her Mum’s sewing habits!
