A few more blocks

Like most Aussie quilters I am sure, I have been sewing in front of the TV or the radio keeping up to date with the latest news about all the floods occurring at the moment in Queensland.  It is just unbelievable.  I was so pleased to see that there is going to be a Flood Relief Appeal starting Monday with auctions on lots of blogs.  I don't have anything to auction but I will be bidding that's for sure.  If you can't contribute something to auction please get along and see what you might like to bid on. 

On a less important subject, I completed five more flower blocks from my blue scraps, that is a total of nine and I still have a few more cut out.
Next I pieced these two eight inch blocks that are destined to become pot holders - maybe on Thursday they will be finished.

And finally, these are the extra half square triangles left over from the flowers.  They are about four inches and i think they might score a blue border and then become another set of pot holders.
The only other bit of news is that I have registered for a Mug Rug Swap with the Quilting Gallery Blog - see button to the right.  That should be fun.  The first time I have done something like this so I am really looking forward to it getting underway.

Well, that is it for me - now it is bedtime.  Tomorrow is another busy day!


  1. I like the variety of work you do and the use of your blue scraps have been amazing...

  2. Hi - thanks for the heads up on the Flood Relief. I am pleased to have some small way to contribute. I am setting up an auction at my blog, so will see how it goes.

  3. I am LOVING your quilts. You just can't go wrong with blue; it's like the perfect color (at least for me!).

    I hope everyone is safe with all the flooding.

  4. I love all your blocks. Esp. the flowers that is a really net pattern.
