Next Aussie Hero Quilt Started.

This request quilt is for The Mario Brothers.this is all 2 1/2 inch squares. I could not find the interfacing that has the grid on it but I did find this black and white fabric in Spotlight that is 2 1/2 squares. This is a technique I have been wanting to do for a while now, perfect for this quilt.
I bought the pattern on Craftsy for 99c, and adapted it to be the right size for the quilt.
This is the link.

A Huge Thank You.

I had a message from the Calandar Group letting me know that they had 1 more calendar, that as it was for charity they were going to let me have it for free, to pick it up this week. I went there today to do just that and instead of 1 they gave me 11. How lovely is that! Thank you so much.

Quilt Continued Ans A Lovely Gift.

 All quilted, just need to trim and add the binding. The backing fabric is from my sister and the pink blocks from the donated fabrics from my friend.
 A gift from my son. He found this in the Op shop.
I cannot wait to play with this, How lucky am I?

Back Into Sewing.

I have been away from my sewing for a few days with a very good reason. My sister is in Australia for work and had a couple of free days to visit me! We have been out and about, I quick overnight visit to Sydney and my daughter and her husband came down from their place too and we stayed in a Hotel. Dinner with my sister who had not seen my daughter since she was a little girl. A wonderful time with so many wonderful memories.
