It's SePTemBeR ...

I managed to sew one SMaLL Xmas gift before we left on our trip.
I wanted to keep up my monthly challenge so this post has been scheduled.
It's another simple LoLLie JaR CoVer... this time in red & white.
It was made using scraps of fabric... hence it's a tad shorter than normal.
It was filled with lollies too ... but just to see how the finished product looked.
It's now been emptied & placed in the gift box.

Thanks Narelle for motivating me to make a gift for the month of September even though I'm out of the country. You can see what other items are on display for 1Xiam... by visiting HeRe.

And the numbers  prove I'm correct →→→→

ReaDY for QuiLTinG

Hubby's Black & White quilt flimsy is finally finished... yippyyy....
It's packed up ready to make it's way to Julie... for her to work her magic on it.
It's sized at approx (82in x 98in)... SimPLe design... but I'm very HaPPy with the way it turned out.
The blocks were made using 3 inch x 10 inch strips of 4 different fabrics ranging from light to dark & are set on point . I added corner stones & two outside borders as well.
You'll see a pic of the finished quilt once I added the binding & label.
