I have been planning to make my brother a quilt using these blocks and as he will be 60 in November this seemed like the time for a quilt. I have made 4 blocks in one colourway and have a centre block and 4 others in progress. Just need to make one more lot of four and then square them up, then ........ hmmm so quite a bit of work to do yet! So not a finish for August but I've decided this will be September's UFO project too. Some of my UFO projects I don't have a real need to have finished any time in particular and I need to get this one done!
Any way this is the other block (x4) which I have completed.
My brother has always loved the sea and the river so I am trying to use fabric with a meaning. The centre fabric reminds me of the wood on a jetty. I have other nautical themed fabric and other fabric which is themed around London as his daughter is currently living there.
So that's my August (and September) UFO project so far.
I thought I'd finish with another photo of our lovely 'pup' Olivia who is working on sending me bankrupt. Apart from eating everything in sight , she is (reluctantly) on first name terms with the vet already and we've only had her for 3 months!
I finally managed to get her to smile for me to take a photo, she normally looks really miserable in photos!
