Little Macca's Farm progress

Another two blocks together and appliqued for Little Macca's Farm.
They still need their 'sounds' stitching in, BLEAT for the goat and MOO for the cow. There are two blocks and the border to get together before assembling the whole quilt.
The eyes are buttons which go on after quilting.
It's a fun quilt to make, large blocks so fantastic to start off with machine applique.

Anyone know what this is????

That's right, it's a piece of weaveline that I didn't pay attention to the other day when pressing it onto a stitchery. Lucky I haven't put together my new ironing board cover yet!
We've hit some cold weather here today and a great place to be is in the kitchen with the slow combustion stove, the children and a board game. We have just finished playing Monopoly Junior - me being weary of Squatter, it has had quite a work out the past ten days or so!
This afternoon I have been working on machine applique projects. I should have some more Harvest Sampler blocks to show you soon. There are five completed and I have a number of other blocks for the quilt on my desk waiting to be started/finished.

Doh! As you say, just as well it was not a new cover. The blocks are looking very cute. Can't wait to see the finished product.

This is going to be a fantastic quilt Bec - I've recently done my first machine blanket stitching and am looking forward to doing some more (my old machine didn't have the stitch).

Your blocks look great Bec! Looking forward to seeing the quilt top in full!
Oops! You may be making that new ironing board cover sooner than you think!
Stay warm! 8-)
