Australia Day Sewing

I am enjoying making this quilt so much, I'm trying to work on it whenever I can. As I don't have a sewing room I have to set up at the kitchen table so at 9am this morning I started sewing and didn't stop until it was time to start dinner.

I first discovered this block on Jodi's blog over at Pleasant Home and immediately I knew I wanted to make it. There is a tutorial by Amber from A little bit Biased and its fantastic. You should check it out of you love scrappy sewing. Amber has made a mini quilt in red, white and blue, its so cute.



I still have 5 blocks to make for the bottom row then I'll have to think about a border. I have quite a few 3 1/2" squares left so I want to use them in a border of some kind.

So Australia Day was a good sewing day for me while the boys watched cricket.

Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

I came across that tutorial at the weekend aswell, I decided it was a good scrap buster and so far have made 6 blocks! I'm off work this week and yesterday just could NOT stop sewing. Fabulous!
