I have spent some time on preparing the side borders for my Aunty Green quilt. I have started sewing a little of the applique on one of them and with the handling all of the freezer paper pieces have fallen off. On the other side the paper remains so the colours aren't on view yet. I spend quite a bit of time deciding on the fabric and then 'fussy' cutting the larger flowers. I always enjoy this part of making a quilt.

 Meanwhile I still have blocks ready to sew for the Mary Brown quilt. This is the latest to be finished. The reverse of the previous one.

The weather has been wet and cold, just miserable. It's nicer to stay home and sew with the added bonus of watching Wimbledon at the same time.

I love your appliques, you do such beautiful work and the prints and way you cut, just make the flowers look even more beautiful.
