Caswell inspiration.

I have missed working on My Caswell blocks so much, I think it must have been before we went away last year since we have spent quality time together and with finding the perfect backing for it I felt we needed to get reacquainted sewing room or no sewing room. So last night I decided to take stock and start prepping the templates for the next set of blocks.
Six new blocks ready to have the applique pieces selected. I am so looking forward to this.

And just to get me fired up, as if I needed to be, I set out all the blocks so far to see how pretty they were.

Would you like to see?
17 completed not in their final order, 6 prepared and that will leave two to do as I will finish this at 25 blocks instead of 30. Well that is the plan at this stage.
Happy Australia Day Holiday

They are beautiful blocks Merina and I often think the secret is to be prepared. At least now you can pick them up as you like and they will be ready to go.
