FQS BOM blocks 4 & 8 ..........

Having a great time with the visitors...........we went to the dam for a walk and I snapped this photo - part of an old gate..........got my "favourite colour" post done for snappy friends today too..........

Finally got some sewing done..........Tutti has some skirts finished and I made 2 more blocks for the Fat Quarter Shop BOM.............I did such a good job motivating Nancy she got going and never stopped...........got it all done and signed up for the next one and she has them all up to date too.............
anyway she has been trying to re motivate me and I think she gave up but today I sat down - cleared the dust off the machine and got 2 more blocks done...........

Block Eight - "Star Party"

Designed by Bonnie Olaveson



Block 4 - "Double Treats"

Designed by Bunny Hill Designs
I changed the centre block of this one...........it was supposed to be the brown with red spot but I thought it looked too dark.........the red tone on tone looked heaps better...............

3 more blocks to complete.......
Take Care til next time..............
