You can see the hillside in the background, going down into the valley. The little road at the bottom was like a river in flood. Last spring we spent a lot of money terracing our veggie plot, and re-inforcing the bottom wall. Last night proved it was money well spent - without it, our garden would have joined the floods at the bottom!
But we survive to tell the tale, and show the progress on my stained quilt
|3 'A' blocks|
|5 'B' blocks rather badly photographed!|
I did have doubts about the sashing, but now I'm sure I chose the right one. Thanks to Sarahs tip about stacking and chain sewing, the blocks went together easily with only one or two minor mistakes on my behalf. My biggest mistake was not clearing everything away when cutting some more pieces for my Snowball blocks, and slicing through one of the end blocks on the A block. Ooops!
Anyway - as it's starting to take on it's own personality now, I need a name for it. Any ideas?
