Shopping And Quilt Continued.

 In the Op shop (Vinnies, South Morang) today I bought these pens, all with 2018 on them for the packages to go with the quilts and laundry bags. 9 packs of 5 for $9.
 For myself I bought all these acrylic paints and opaque paints. Total cost, $40.
This is the quilt so far. All the solid blocks will have colours pulled out from the green background, mustard yellow and a blue. Meggie is helping. This is not the layout.

Quilt For My Grand Nephew.

Today I cut out all the pieces for my Grand Nephews quilt. I am changing it up a bit but it is from Happy Quilts by Antonie Alexander. Hound Dog quilt.

I am using wool for the dog from mens jackets. I cut the pieces larger than needed and washed and dried it and then put a stabilizer on the back then cut them out. Blanket stitched down. I will be using buttons for eyes that will be stitched and glued down. My sister is coming to Australia for work and will be taking the quilt back with her. I am love with it already.
