|Carrie Nation in Sawtooth Star|
I showed the centre unit of this block last Saturday, but now I've added the star points and made the purple parts of an alternate block. I saw yesterday that Angela had posted the instructions for a second purple block, but I won't be working on that until later next week. I also did some preparation towards purple nine patches, but no sewing yet.
This week I received a mystery give-away package from Dasha in Australia, containing some lovely fabric showing Australian birds:
birds I've only ever seen in cages, and so different from our native European birds, most of which are brown or black. These are a rainbow in themselves! Now I'm considering how to use this fabric: fussy-cut squares framed by a different fabric, appliqué, broderie perse or what? Do you have any suggestions, because cutting it into 2½" squares would be a waste!
Also my RSC14 quilt is finally now one piece. No pictures yet, but hopefully it'll have quilted borders, a binding and a label by this time next week.
I shall be linking later to the linky party at
so hop over there to see more purple splendour.
