AQC a little late

At AQC a couple of weeks ago, I did white glove duty for two hours and got to see some amazing quilts. As I got admission free I spent up big. Ha ha not really, I bought Liz Stanway's latest" the Honey Drippers" and a Cherry Pie design "Miss Elizabeth" ( for obvious reasons)

Here are the first two rows of 22  hexies put together for the centre panel. Chooky Blue and I have decided to work at keeping each other going and the challenge before today was to get those rows together. Done.

I have something like 130 of the coloured ones ready to go,all of the cream ones cut out and the green diamonds are now cut out of the fabric nestling on the box. Need to see what the challenge will be for the next link to Anthea's EPP.

I said that I needed 8 more AHHHH's to complete the other quilt... well here are two done and the others waiting. I actually need 13 but hey that will happen.

This was one of them... spot the obvious mistake! This is now correctly sewn.

I am not an Aussie or a New Zealander and I am not up with how to put up a photo of poppies etc but may we never forget the sacrifice so many made 100 years ago today to keep others safe.
I know of two people actually in Gallipoli attending services over there, and I am sure it will be a very moving experience.
Laet we forget.

The AHHHH's are coming together.

This is the first AHHHH quilt top that I have got together. I love the way it has turned out so far. I aim to put a small black border and then the Batik around as a larger border and then I may just ask my lovely quilter to baste it for me so I can have a go at quilting it myself.

Stand to the side and this is the left overs from the first quilt. Got a bit confused sewing them together which is why the top ( side) has the red hexie in there. It will all be good in the end. I have to make some more so I can get it a bit bigger but eventually I will have two quilts with my beautiful AHHHH's in them. Just waiting on Tonya from Hillbilly Handiworks to send me some more. All ordered just things from USA take a while. 

I have linked with PYT at Hibiscus-stitcheswww.hibiscus-stitches.blogspot.com

Off to put some more together.
