I'm supposed to have a centre panel and the first border on by now bringing this up to 24.5" square. Well, I'm not following path 1, I'm doing the slightly improvised while still following guidelines path 2! My centre block is rectangular measuring 18.5 x 24.5" already without the first border on and will hopefully measure 24.5" x 30.5" when border 1 is done.
I have a balloon and a kite all basted up and ready for joining. I underestimated the time it takes to hand piece hexagons so still working on these guys!
The guidelines are to introduce as many fabrics as you want to use in the quilt in the first third and as I'm making this from a mixture of scraps and stash I've gone a bit mad. I've got multi-coloured flowers and will have 2 little bees from the pastel fabric buzzing around them.
