The aim is....

To cut out the white/cream and coloured fabrics into 2 1/2" squares.   Each block will use 4 coloured and 4 white squares and once sewn together they will  then be bordered with the black/white fabrics.  These are the fabrics that I have chosen to use.  

I am going off to a quilt retreat at the end of the month and from my past experiences at quilt retreats it is best to go with most of the fabrics - if not all - cut ready to sew as space is very limited.   In past years there have been around 35 ladies attending however this year there are 51 going so you can see what I mean about limited space.

Some of the fabrics have already been cut but most not so I will make my OMG for July to cut out the fabrics and hopefully have something nice to show at the end of the quilt retreat.     Definitely not a finish but perhaps a good start.

Back soon with progress shots and maybe even a trial block and in the meantime

Happy sewing all
