Making blocks

On Tuesday Joshua put out a call for quilters to make Hashtag blocks for quilts for the victims of the Sydney siege. You can read about the request here. Wednesday i set to choosing fabrics as the request was for white & tone on tone fabrics to make the quilts look like rainbows.
The blocks i mailed of Thursday

Yesterday i spent making Santa stocking for the GS's
Such fun - not. The pattern just says to sew them together not stating which front & back to sew together. I decided i'd add wadding & lining to give them more substance. First stocking went together well even though my machine hates sewing wadding that doesn't have a backing over it. Then trouble struck. Apparently the red one on the right possibly should be the back of the stocking on the left. I do wish the little info given on the panel said so. Now i have a spare red piece to make into a stocking when i get some more Xmas fabric.

Happy Stitching,
