Sewing up a storm

Wild, wet and very windy weather here, perfect for staying home and sewing. Have been spending some time working on my Purple 9 Patch, this one is for Oliver's teacher who has announced she is expencting her first baby. I am not sure if she will teach the whole year so I have bought my deadline forward.
Putting the blocks together last night, I have made it smaller than the original plan as it looked huge. My rows are 7 blocks x 7 plus sashing and borders, I want to machine quilt in rows, any bigger and I think I will struggle getting it under the arm. 7 blocks with sashing are completed, ready to be sewn together tomorrow.
I have about 30 blocks left over, so I think I will make another one but slightly different, something like this. Kippy has stayed up late keeping me company. Next post, hopefully a completed top!

Nice! Very crisp and fresh. Kipps is growing up, her ears don't overwhelm her face any more!
