Favourite things update ....

April's My Favourite Things blocks are done....

those tiny little flowers and centres .... oh my - I did battle with them ....

... but a pretty tree is definitely nice to sit under...

... and I just love rainbows..... I'm just watching for the pot of gold under one...
(which of course I would share with all of you)


I think Annie was easing us into this quilt... the first blocks were much easier to do....

Now with these strips on it is beginning to look like a quilt.....


I'm going to love the next blocks...... Sewing and Best Friends.... definitely favourite things of mine....

It is such fun seeing different colourways in this quilt ...... if you feel like a browse at others of these go HERE.....

Righto.... Gotto Go.... prep work to be done....
