Finally, i have done something...

Finally I have something to show... I seem to be always
doing a bit of this and a bit of that - well that has continued (I do tend to get a bit bored with things and I do feel sorry for my family in years to come sorting out their late mothers things!!).
I decided on Wednesday ti try out the templates that we had bought at the Canberra Craft & Quilt fair (one lot anyway!). Si I started of with 2  6" squares.

These are the templates that I had to cut out from fabric that had viesoflix attached.
Which then gave me these. I then had to iron them onto the 6" square and the applique them. The applique I did with machine.

After this I joined the together and then the difficult part... choosing a colour to border them with.
I like both the pink and the coral but am still undecided - what do you think!!

This will be a one off for me as it didn't really appeal to me doing all the applique.
especially if you did enough blocks for a quilt.

It would be very nice as a quilt as you can see from the pictures there are a few different patterns that would evolve in a larger size. But it is not enough to convince me to do a quilt. maybe one of the other girls in the craft group will do a quilt.
This is the colour I have decided on as the feature wall in my sewing room (which is coming together very slowly). Against this wall will be my sewing table and an overhead cupboard in white. the other wall will be white as will all of the other cupboards.
As I am using all used cupboards and shelving it will take a while to finish the room but this is a good start as I have taken months to decide what colours I was going to paint it!!
And blogger spellcheck isn't working so please excuse any mistakes!!
