Ten Ice Cream Soda Blocks ..
Doesn't that post title make you want to start singing?
The July/August packs of Ice Cream Soda Quilt pieces arrived in the mail the other day.
All eight blocks for May have been completed, and as I started the eight for June, I thought I'd do a group photo.
The completed blocks are definitely an eclectic bright scrappy mix of colours and fabrics. I have decided I am definitely lacking some blue blocks, and have managed to cobble together some fabrics for one block, whilst realising, that while I have a lot of aqua in the stash, other blues don't feature as heavily. Luckily I know that my Liberty scraps have some blue pieces that should mix with some other fabrics.
The Scout is taking me away hiking this weekend, the destination is a surprise, the weather is rather wet and cold, so I have prepared a couple of blocks to work on in the hut, if we get rained in.
Also, if anyone would like to see my sister's beautiful Bird Dance quilt - check out Quiltmekiwi's blog post about the quilting of it. Both Janine and Leanne have made an amazing job of this.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend - whatever you end up doing.
