Lots of Wet Days.

Lots of wet days have meant I am spending more time inside. ( Not as wet as you have had Raewyn and ladies up North ).
  I have begun quilting my community quilt. Straight diagonals to start with. As one of my aims when I started making this was to use up fabric and supplies I had in my stash I had to make do with this on the backing.
 The mid green fabric was long enough but not wide enough so I split it down the middle and added in 12.5" squares of colour similar to those on the quilt top.
 It's a while since I quilted anything of size on my Bernina but am managing okay. My shoulders told me when to stop at 10 to 5 yesterday. Green  thread is the next thing I an going to run out of so I am using up bobbins already wound . ( In pale colours ) Finding enough fabric that works for the binding might also be a challenge.

 Good weather for duck and also visits from the local Royal Spoonbill population. 2 here by our jetty. We have seen 15 further out.( still hoping for a really clear close up photo  - I am getting closer as they seem tamer )  Walking along the estuary front at the moment is best  done in  gumboots , but where we added more drainage across our part has worked.

 I am watching this new flower shoot on my pot plant emerge. There are 2 new shoots coming on.
 I have been reading more than sometimes. My sister who briefly visited about 3 weekends ago( lives 5 + hours away ) lent me 4 good books. I have finished them all.3 were really engrossing. I will up date the reading list on my right side bar shortly.

Well done on using only stash for your quilt. It has turned out well. Lucky you to have so many birds on your door step.

The backing looks great, I always forget about joining squares to make the backing fabric extend enough and usually hunt around for a strip of fabric. A scrappy binding would look good if you had enough bits of fabric that would work.

Well done with your quilt, using just your stash can be challenging. I like the splash of colour in the backing. A scrappy binding would look good, if you have left over pieces. Great to see the birds down the bottom of your garden.

Looking good! It's amazing how one always needs ("needs") to buy something - whether backing or binding - despite the large stash.
