Okay, I'm going to give it another go. I've had foolproof instructions from Nancy and Judy so I cannot fail! Or at least, if I do, there's no hope. (It's looking like it just might work, so far.)

I've been run ragged at work this week so haven't done much sewing in the evenings but I have made another X and O block and a couple of four-patches to go with the wonky houses I made a while back and this will be the basis for Tonya's Take the Leap Challenge Crib Quilt. I've enjoyed doing them and I like the bright colours of these fabrics.

Lois has asked how I cut up shirts to maximise the yardage so I'm going to take a few pics of the next one I cut up and show how I use every little scrap.

I just viewed the published blog entry - the links worked - oh happy day!

Happy Day indeed!!! You did it!! CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!!

Everything is looking so neat and bright! Just fantastic!

Libby said...

Your blocks look like a lot of fun. Hurray on mastering the links -- they can be a challenge, to be sure.

Nancy said...

Looks like it worked this time. :-)

I'm liking the wonky houses/etc you have going there.

Tazzie said...

Way to go Fiona on two counts! Firstly, cuz your liberated blocks are looking soooo wonderful, and secondly for figuring out the link thingy. It sure is a happy day!

Linda said...

Nice work !
I love the colours that you've used :-)

Tonya R said...

Fun blocks - you did great with all of them and the links too!

Finn said...

Well Happy Day indeed!!! You are one foxy lady getting that linking process to work. Hurray for you and for the house, 4 patches and X&O's!!
I haven't even given linking a go as yet..LOL, took me forever to learn the little I do know..*VBS*
Isn't that quilt at Evelyn's just the greatest???? Hurray for her beating the drum to use what falls to our hands..*VBS* Hugs, Finn
