As the girls were coming over for stitching on Saturday, I wanted to have Scrappy Crossroads together to give to Karen to quilt.  All the blocks were finished and sewn together by Thursday night

so all I had to do on Friday night was attach the borders

The borders are fabric off-cuts from backing used on a Christmas quilt last year.

and make up the backing - bought this fabric last week from Quiltsmith.

Also finished off July's swap block for the Aussie B&C group - "Norway".  The photo was taken at a funny angle - the block really is square ;)  The colours are as requested by this month's block recipient.  I think this will be the last "Norway" block I ever make. 

Little Sweetheart came for a sleepover on Saturday so she joined the girls for afternoon tea.  We had a busy Sunday morning - breakfast at the local cafe, some shopping and a play in the park, quick visit to GG and also visited a friend in hospital before lunch and then back home to Mumma and Daddu.

Have been working on "Apple Pie" blocks as well.  These are quick to put together and the FigTree  "Strawberry Fields Revisted" and "Honeysweet" fabrics are very pretty, especially with the "Butterscotch and Rose" pink that makes the chain blocks.

5 red blocks to make then another 28 nine-patch blocks and this quilt top can be assembled.  About time I stitched down some binding on the quilts Karen has quilted lately.
