Good progress is being made on my fun toucan quilt. First step was to sew the two small squares together and then getting them pinned to the rectangles.
Putting that aside it was time to have a play with the pieces of my scrappy applique.
One of the members of my small Tuesday quilt group has given us a challenge. She has chosen this pattern
And kindly offered us access to her vast stash to pick our fabrics and on completion of the quilts they are to be donated to the local hospital auxiliary of which two of us are members.
Fabric choosing took place during the week. I went the safe option of red, white and shades of grey
The other choice was lilac/mauve and green
And the 3rd choice was completely different with aqua, orange and mustards
We are aiming for one block every week. It will be interesting to see them grow and if the different colourways affect the final product.
Don't forget to head on over here to see what the other crafters achieved when joining in with FNwF which is organised by Cheryll on the first Friday night of each month.

Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
