I decided I'd played around enough with placing the squares, now
all nicely fastened in rows and ready to go
and here's my final layout below, perhaps I could have done a little more
tweaking but I wanted to move on
a little shadow on the bottom left, need to photograph
at a better time, you can see the squares are
quite roughly in place, luckily none of them floated to the ground as
I removed the rows.
There will be a 2 and 1/2" border of the Guinea Flower fabric which
holds the centre in very nicely then I'll go with a dark binding.
Almost all the fabrics used are from my scrap stash apart from
two of the latest KF range.
Isn't it amazing what we find as we hunt through our scraps,
one of the fabrics in the quilt I must have had for a great many years
and was surprised to unearth it amongst the others.
I have used all of it here, look closely at the second row down to find a Plus with a pink
tentacle looking pattern, there are three more and it's got to be a KF and how I wish
that all those years ago I had thought to buy more yardage!
More KF fabrics arrived the other day, a few are below - in no particular order!
I'm counting these as a birthday gift to myself - 75 yrs last week!!
Better get sewing my way through my fabrics!!

|Climbing Geranium and Flower Net|
|Dorothy - Red|
Some time will now have to spent folding and putting in the appropriate place,
I really did buy a lot this time, now NO more fabrics, at least not until
next year when the new range is released.
Spring has arrived here in New Zealand - the greenery is a delight to see
the Japanese Maple in the back garden is looking amazing and I always love
to see the tiny red 'helicopters' peeping out.
An early misty morning walk last week was a treat
and a bright show of pelargoniums - forgotten the name of the
Not much here relating to quilting I'm afraid but I do have plans for next week!
