This is the photo of my design wall to date.
Its a slow process and I am still working on the top of the quilt.
I am still shifting blocks around.
I have decided to do the complete borders on the left and and top sides only for the moment, in lines as I go ... and will only complete the block borders individually.
This will allow me to change blocks around as I feel inclined...
To make this a King size quilt - and I am undecided on this as yet...I may need to make another 16 blocks...
I will continue to put it together before I make the other blocks - IF I do.
This photo is as much to let you know what I am up to , and more importantly to keep my own inspiration going.

Wishing all my friends a very Happy Christmas
Keep safe
and a healthy and Happy New Year to all.

Not too much quilting being done for now, as family will be with us over the Christmas break,
and friends here over the New Years break
I will catch up in the New Year.
Maybe even some more quilting photos.

First corner...top left side of POTC quilt.

This section was completed on 16th December 2009.

I am going to try to do this quilt row by row, so it will take a while, as the top border is included in this.

More of Peggy Toole's beautiful fabric

New fabric arrived this week , designed by Peggy Toole for Kaufman

The final POTC block - to replace POTC #05.
Now to begin the sorting and then sewing the cream block borders.
Emerging from the pond
"I can see you too!"

Wee Bit emerging from the pond ... Froddo was nowhere in sight untill later.
These frogs are so intriguing, as they come out and sun thenselves each day and disappear late afternoon. They never go far from their pond. We got them as tadpoles from Frogette-me-not Frog Farm not far from here. We did get 10 but these two seem to be the only survivors.
We have put bird net over the pond and shade cloth too to protect them in the heat of summer.
Hopefully we will get more in the autumn. They are tree frogs and apparently can live till they are in their 50's.

Some of my new fabrics which arrived today!

Square patches #53 - 60

I have 10 m0re patches half completed and will get onto those today I hope.

I am working out with my Inklingo Lite #4 programme, the printing and cutting layout of the edge shapes and will hopefully get the printing of these done today .

Then I will play some more with all of the main POTC blocks and the square patches to work out the final placement.

I am hoping my 3-sies gal Andrea again gets enthused, and then we slowly go row by row joining all the blocks together!
