So here's what I've been up to

I am a member of the UK Borders Agency quilting bee on Flikr run by Kerry of Penny Dog Patchwork .
We made a central block each here's mine
I am so proud of this as it's my first ever quilt block :):):)
 I packed up my little tortoise saw tooth star block and sent it to the first recipient and waited for  one of the other members to send me theirs.
This is the first border I ever made on Wendy's block
I can tell you it was a very scary time, I didn't want to make a mess up of someone's hard work and also what on earth would they think of my sewing, I showed pictures of my ideas and fabric choices and just went for it. Happily Wendy was very happy with it. Then I packed it off to the next person on the list.
And so on it goes. I've seen a few pictures of my block with it's added borders and I can't wait to get it back, It's looking amazing.
Here's another border I did
This time I wanted another dimension so I added some Prairie points on top of a beautiful print from Amy Butler.
And the latest border
I'm not sure this is finished yet, I might still add some thing to the left and right borders.
Well that's what I've been up to. Well, as well as course work, looking after grandchildren (love that) and working. Oh and in my quilt group we are making a  quillow! But more on that another time.
