promises.........

On Saturday morning I set a challenge with Susan..............
We were going to get our strips done by Sunday night..............
I worked pretty hard yesterday I was all stripped out........ and I am not finished but the end is in sight..........3 strips pieced............3 strips pinned together all worked out.........top and bottom have piles of fabric and that is about it......
Yesterday morning Peg was attaching some binding to a quilt...........I told her I was going to attach the binding to a quilt.............ready to fold in 1/2 below and yes I got it all sewn on..............now to hand stitch down.............it's a big single quilt..............102" x 60" so only 360" to stitch..........
And also yesterday morning Shez showed us her daisy block and I said I would get mine done.............well it was my last job in the Chook shed for the day but I did get it done before dark......just.....
Thanks girls..............I achieved lots with your motivation........blogging is great..........
And a friend dropped in for a few hours too.....lovely to sew together
Catch you later..........

  18. The stripping is a 'bear-claw' isnt it?! I am hoping to pull an all-dayer too. Yours looks awsome. You are almost there. Your daisy block looks nice too. I love the simplicity of the daisy block.
