Now before I forget - there will be a special post tomorrow
night to announce first, second and third place in our ANZAC
Day Laundry Bag Challenge.
Just a quick one. For the BOM for this month we have asked for the blocks to be predominantly red, white and blue. If you have trouble as you don't have a feature fabric in those colours for the centre then feel free to use a plain white square. If you are feeling confident with applique you can add a star or a heart, or even a small roo. If you don't feel happy about applique, leave it blank and maybe someone else will applique something or they can just be left blank as a place for the eye to rest in the quilt.
One final announcement before the Weekly Dispatches proceed. The next two sewing days will be as follows
at my home on Monday the 13th of May 10am till 3pm (ish)
and at Penrith Patchwork on Sunday the 19th of May 10am to 2pm.
Bring your sewing machine, your lunch and I will provide your lunch.
I probably don't mention this enough but Jeff, the owner of Penrith Patchwork, is a great supporter, donating a sewing room each month free of charge and whole bolts of material from time to time as well. How awesome is that!
If you are interested in coming to one or both days can you please let me know so that I know how much preparation to do.
And now on with the show!
Don't forget tomorrow's special post.
Till next time.............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
