Quick Quilt Top

I had two charm packs of Fig Tree's Buttercup plus a little bit by the yard in my cupboard and bought another two charm packs on special at Hatched and Patched.  Four charm squares sewn together to make a larger square, 2-1/2" sashings and posts, the tennis on the tv to watch/listen to and it's done.


This photo shows the colours better
I've ordered some B fabrics (border, backing and binding) and when they arrive I'll finish off the top.

We are going to a wedding in July and this may be the present.  I showed these fabrics and some Bliss fabrics to the bride's mother and asked her which she thought her daughter would like - she chose Buttercup.  I'm slowly working my way through the Fig Tree stash.  Have a bit of a Bonnie and Camille stash happening too.

We had a great night out in Sydney on Thursday night - dinner with all the kids at a Mexican in Newtown and coffee/sweets at Max Brenner.  Lunch with The Schoolgirls today.  Seem to be a "lady who lunches" lately.  No complaints from me.
