Green Fabric! Plus Show and Tell...

There have been many calls, emails and questions about my last post... Where did that 'green fabric with the birds come from'? The group of fabrics that I have been using for my most recent quilt have been accumulating for a little while; when I found them I chose to look deep and only use what was in my private stash! That is a common phrase Sue and I hear at the shop each week, and this time I decided I would have a go at using my older fabrics too!

The 'green' fabric is from a range by Anna Griffin, I think it is about 6 or 7 years old! I have been hoarding it for a little while now and until recently had forgotten I had it! But it was perfect for my new idea.

I thought you might like to see just how little these hexies are beside a US 1 cent and an Aussie 5 cent.

This past weekend was are Sunday Sewing group. The girls were working hard and here is a little of their Show and Tell...
