Holiday progress

With some very busy holidays almost behind us, I have managed to achieve a little more progress in my SKoW quilt. I'm almost deaf from hearing that whip crack everyday!! But thanks Chooky.....



I was quite afraid to begin this block but wasn't nearly half as bad as I had imagined. 




I had to redo the cutting on this block of 'Friends', cause in my haste I had the dresses and fabric around the wrong way.....


I think this red Fig Tree quilts fabric is my favourite in my quilt. I had cut out two of these shoe blocks, one ready for my shoe bag for January only to realise it is a whole new separate and smaller template...........!!!!

Happy Stitching, Susie
