Double Shot!

I swear it has legs!

Bright and bold... Beautiful!
Yes.. yes I mean my camera, it disappeared on me for a couple of days just when I was getting everything prepped and ready to make another blog.. I am swearing that this is a Murphy and Sod's law week, if I need it I can't find it and if I was looking for it months ago and no longer need it, it shows up. 
Anyhow, here's how my current Sunday project is going; my little charm squares just love this yellow fabric, which just happens to be vintage, as well as the white squares, and oh I wish you could touch them!! They are buttery soft and a delight to the senses! Did I mention I love vintage?
Auditioning block centres
Here's the other block that will be in the quilt, I didn't have enough of the white fabric to make the whole quilt with the white border. The original intention was white border with yellow blocks all through it. 
The red corners are scrap from a blouse with a funky pattern, it has almost every color found in the charm squares and matches the yellow border to a T, although seen in the picture it doesn't make much sense. Once I've put it with the yellow it will make more sense but you are going to have to wait for that :D
2nd Audition
3rd audition
I obviously have a few 'blah' squares that have to be placed carefully or they are going to stick out like a frog at a princess party. Which is why I decided to audition the squares before I put them all together, save me a lot of time and hassle in the long run. 

Hopefully I will have more progress for next Sunday and a camera that isn't playing hide and seek... 


  1. Those look good. I would switch the red and pink in the 3rd audition though. It would put the two stron colours opposite each other and the weaker valued ones opposite each other.

    1. I think your right, I do have another block that doesn't seem quite right so I'll pull both of them apart and remix the blocks and hope I get a better blend ;)
