Sunday sewing

Today was another perfect day in Adelaide with lovely sunny spring weather.  Unfortunately my hubby had to work so I was home alone.

 I did a spot of Spring cleaning and pulled out all of my linen cupboard, sorted and refolded everything.  Discarding items like single and double bed sheets - too old for quilt backs, and as we only have queen beds in the house - no use to us.  Round table cloths, as I don't have a round dining table anymore, and other bits and pieces like this.  The cupboard looks amazing now, I even colour co ordinated all of the towels.

Once this was done, it was a spot of ironing and then I hit the sewing machine.

I made my next four farmers wife quilt blocks to honour my white rabbit list of 8 a month (or 2 a week) and as we are half way through September this is a tick of the list.

Here they are:
30. End of Day
31. Evening star

32. Farmer's Daughter

33. Farmer's Puzzle
My solid black jelly roll has arrived so I plan to start piecing bits of this quilt together, I also purchased a solid green (as in the green above- but without the pattern) to make the corner stones.  I think it will look quite dramatic and hopefully the black will make the bright colours pop. Stay tuned for a peek at this as I sew along.

UPDATE: Since my last post I have started to put the quilt together.  I will only do a few rows as I need more blocks and colours in the mix for it to look balanced but here it is so far, I am sooooo excited at how good it looks.  Kinda like a bag of licorice allsorts.
