" Do you want to go to Levin this morning" Yes, that's fine." Good, I want to get some merino for your winter tops."
A while later, after I looked at every possible fabric there, we came home with a huge bag full. Photos another day.
Meantime Sandra over at https://www.mmmquilts.com/2019/04/beothuk-star-qal-cutting.html ( How do I change the link to your blog name on Blogger, Sandra, I could do it so easily on Open Live Writer)) is running another wonderful QAL, The Beothuk Star. Hop over to the link and find out how wonderful this is going to be. We have options for fabric choices, and it is easy to follow along, no rushing at all.
A while ago I was the lucky recipient of some fab Island Batik fabrics from Dione over in Oz, after her man chose my comment out of many. Those strips have been on display and I look and rearrange so often.
I have chosen 4 strips in greens, a turquoise, a pale green for the background, and a stunning multi coloured green, purple, teal and black for the POP colour. If the background fabric doesn't stretch enough, I have a floral one to add for the border. The background looks very pale here, it is really a tad deeper shade of pale sea green. And the turquoise is slightly deeper. We, well I, have made new Indian Cotton full length curtains for our bedroom, and this will be perfect on the bed.
The plumbers and builders will be back on Monday, to start more alterations. Paint samples adorn the kitchen table, vinyl samples lie on the carpet in the lounge, and the plumbing goodies will arrive this week, and I hope will get stored outside meantime.
Just to add to the confusion, Stephanie Jacobson has a BOM ongoing, I have found some more batik to make more HST, and the blocks will be a distraction from the mess and noise.
