He looks like he might be leading the innocent little animals down to the water to use them as a decoy too, use them as shark bait Shocked Shocked lmao

I couldn't stand it, I unpicked the surfboard section and the night sky and replaced it with daytime sky lol!  

Night time

Daytime - much nicer time to go surfing and I didnt like the plain sky/horizon so I added two distant islands. I much prefer it now

I also got the final block assembled and fused, the Kangaroo Bathing Houses

You've been busy! Daytime Santa is much better and those kangaroos are soooooo cute!

I like daytime Santa too. The night sky would have worked if Santa was just sitting and star gazing but the surfboard messed that up. The Kangaroos are too cute.

This afternoon I finished top stitching the final block dance

Excited to discover there is no sashing, don't know why I had it in my head there was. Tomorrow I hope to start joining the blocks, maybe even get to cut the inner and outer borders. So glad to be finished the fiddly work, so startled to be suddenly this close to assembling the top!

I took a break from housework this afternoon, took some tylenol as my back was starting to cramp and then sat and started pinning blocks and stitching them together. This is what I have so far, borders next and best of all, its inspired shekid to get back to hers. She is busy tracing pieces as I type Very Happy

Well look at that. That is just as cute as anything. Love it. Sure glad you changed that night sky to day, it would have stood out like a sore thumb I think.

I have little xmas light buttons to use rather than the applique ones the pattern had, I will string them on some thread and 'hang' them on the blocks that have them. You can see but I used a green satin ribbon with gold metallic edges for the stings the baubles hang from. Im going to add some fancy ric rac to them, something with metallic gold so they arent flat and I have a couple of xmas wreath buttons that might suit the bathing houses, the pink/orange one is very bland as is the blue toned one. Even a door knob might make it better when its all done.

Yes, Im really glad I pulled the night sky off the Santa block and replaced it with blue sky, it just looked wrong and would have looked wrong on the quilt. McKenna had used the same dark background on the cockatoo bell block and the quilt looks out of whack with the two dark blocks, no balance.

I have a grocery order coming today, just got an email message its going to be late, changed the time from today to 5.40 - 6.40pm so I have a free day all of a sudden! Plus that means DH is here to haul them in although I do hate having to sort it all at night right in the middle of dinner time, oh well. I might start cutting the borders, housework isnt going anywhere fast, if I put a load of washing on the noise of the machine will make me feel like Im multi-tasking coolsmiley

Huh, just cutting borders, the kit contains 63" of outer border fabric and the two side pieces required are 64 1/4"  - why would you only give 63", totally stupid to have to waste a whole strip to get the extra little bit required.

Inner border has 46" on two sides, why not just make your pattern a little more fabric friendly, seeing as the majority is 44" WOF??

Now all I have left to do is top stitch the few piece that overlap the border or other blocks Very Happy

Yeah, I've run into patterns like that before. It really wouldn't be hard to adjust applique backgrounds to fit WOF. Love your borders. Now even more glad there is no dark blue in the center.

There are 3 Pelicans that are supposed to go on the outer border but Im not going to add them. I love them but one overlaps the kangaroo on the right end and its too busy looking and the perspective is out, the Pelicans are bigger than the roo and I don't like it. Laura likes it though so I gave the ones I made to her

Not too bad. But definitely out of proportion to the kangaroos. I guess we worry about that stuff too much. The whole thing is whimsical, not realistic and we're worried about pelicans. We're so goofy. azn

Linda I had to piece a narrow section onto one block in that quilt, it was too short when I went to assemble, thank goodness I kept all scraps was able to match it up

Thanks Jenn!
