Hello Kate. I will have made you a block too. My sort of colours, but I can't remember which now. I have some birthday blocks from way back and I must make them into charity quilts rather than letting them languish in my stash.

Eileen, Love the subtle colours of daughter's future MIL quilt.

I am quilting, but nothing to show yet.

Good job I did placement before pinning & sewing. The central on point part [4 antique tile blocks] was slightly larger than the side sections of pinwheels and setting triangles.

Decided to add an inner border and actually tried mitred corners. First 3 went really well and the fourth one was a mare. I had to unpick it 5 times before it laid flat. Inner borders now in place.

So far the top measures 56" x 56" but it will be 78" x 78" when finished.

Really enjoying making this one. Eileen x

the top is now complete and is 80" square. Hubby is trying to hold it straight so I hope you get the idea of it.

I am taking it to a friend to long arm it for me as I bought extra wide fabric and it seems a shame to cut it up.
