The green bits connected to the red bit.........

Or how daisymum spent her day........................



First you make a really long string of one inch squares trying not to put two the same together..













Then you sew them to the quilt centre with your trusty sewing machine.












Then you add a green check border......















And lay it out and have a good look at it.......




oooh look - my toes match the quilt!!!!!!!!!!!








Then stand further back....and notice that it looks a bit "washed out".........so..........














Add a slightly darker green border and stand back and see that it gives it some more definition.













A bit closer so you can see it better














This little gem of a fabric I bought very cheaply at my favourite quilt shop I think it was $6 a metre and it matches the front perfectly. I sewed it together so it was big enough for the backing, joined several large pieces of batting left overs together for the batting layer and now I am ready to quilt!!!!!!!





I also managed to shop, vacuum, and pop in to the library ( ALL BY MYSELF!!!) and collect a book I had on hold.
My day was blissful but boy is it HOT. Storm on the way hope we don't lose power I need to put the pedal to the floor to get this baby quilted and the binding sewn ready for me to hand stitch before we leave tomorrow at 1pm - yeah I'll get it done...................................
