Living the life and praising God on a dairy farm in Northern Victoria PLUS quilting, knitting, church stuff and of course stuff about family (especially my granddaughters Mia and Maddison)

I think I remember how to make a quilt!!!!!
Well goodness me! I think I have remembered how to make a quilt (well its actually TWO quilts now). Sarah's boyfriend is turning 21 soon and has asked for a quilt for his birthday - yes he asked, isnt he wonderful. Something with 21 on it he said....bit tricky but I think Ive worked out what to do - cant say too much here as Tom might read it - except that I am making shoo-fly blocks as his surname is Shewen (get it?)
Well I have managed to make 12 blocks so far and was mindlessly making half square triangle blocks for it and .... well..... it got a bit boring and also my machine kept wanting to "eat" the ears of the triangles. So what is a girl to do?
I had a look on the moda bake shop site and found this quilt so managed to find some charm squares and have been sort of sewing both at the same time.
