collating the left overs

Phew, that's done.
I would show you the whole thing 
but I have to wait for some one (or 2) to hold it up for me.
In a day or two.
Meanwhile I have been collating the leftovers.

How do you store yours?

I haven't decided whether to make one small quilt 
or more of the "chopstics"quilts
Like here and here.

Now for the backing....

The fabric is all washed and ironed

I have been unpicking kimonos for my next project.
I read someone say they were followoing the "slow quilting" movement.
That is where you do a lot by hand.
I think that's me. especially lately.

That Annie is so clever!
Look at these colours
and her quilting is lovely.
and if you squint you can see the boxes.
Clever coach....

to market, to market....III

I went back to that market today.

Actually today is the first day.
How nice are these brooches?
(that you can make into pendants)
I wanted to buy every single one,
I think I'll go back tomorrow ....

to market, to market....II

There is a market starting in Ballart tomorrow for 3 days!
It's called the "ARTISAN MARKET"
and it's on Friday Saturday and Sunday at the old Mining Exchange.
I defy you to find it on the internet which is why I am posting.
This is the work of a good friend.
Georgeous isn't it?
