We sure did pack a lot into two and a half days

I love this product. As I like the feel of new fabric I don't usually pre wash before I use them but I do like to wash a finished quilt. The quilt with the snake fabric border is finished (binding as well) so into the washing machine with six of these Colour Catcher sheets.
It's a lovely autumn day, great drying weather. I really like the look of a quilt once it's been washed.
Maybe I've got time to wash an other!

I could not make up my mind which colour was best the dirty pink or the cigar brown. In the end I bought a length of both and strip pieced the two together. My Sidmouth Quilt is now ready to go to the quilters.
Does this mean I am free to start something new or should I be good and look in the cupboard for something to finish? Sue

This ugly (in a good way) fabric has been at the shop for a while now. Finally found the right pinks to go with it.
Some of the pinks I begged, borrowed and stole.

Now the top is finished, backing needs to be chosen then off to the quilter. Even though its been so hot in Melbourne this summer I have managed to start several new projects. So far this is the only one that's near to complete which is odd because normally I prefer hand sewing but I must say I have enjoyed sewing this one together on the machine. Can't believe I just said that!
