Some More Girls

Last night I finished the stitching on Block 4 of Gingham Girls - there's a lot of stitching in this quilt so the patterns are good value as a BOM.



Last Sunday afternoon I came across a stitchery that John bought for me years ago at the Quilt Show - I stitched it pretty much straight away but never got around to finishing it off.  "Swan Lake" was on tv that afternoon so I sewed on the binding and stitched it down while watching the ballet - it was the contemporary version with male swans.


This week I've been spending an hour after work sewing together the Ruby Chain blocks (Island Chain quilt from one of the Scrap Basket books using mostly Ruby fabrics and a couple of Bliss fabrics).  I love how this is turning out with the turquoise spot on white background.  A couple of the Tuesday Girls have already finished their quilts and I'm lagging behind.


Next step is to figure out a border or two.

Lunch with the Schoolgirls on Saturday and I'm taking Mum to Sydney on Sunday for a wander around Queen Victoria Building.  Should be a nice weekend.

Ruby chain is looking great, very effective pattern.
GIngham Girls is gorgeous, and that's great to hear that it is a worthy BOM pattern - so many of these patterns are expensive for what they are, this one sounds like it is worth looking into.
