Opawa School Garage Sale- Instalment 1.

We’ve just got back from the dog park a little wetter, tireder and most importantly cooler then we started. Today’s been a real scorcher!


This afternoon, in between bits of a project that’s not ready to be revealed yet, I pieced together all the squares from the garage sale and lay them out on the bed. This is the layout I came up with- I’m very pleased with the outcome.


The square with the red and whie in the middle is my favourite- I did a little free hand embroidery on it. I’ve been very inspired by two sets of colours in this quilt- the red and white and the classic blues.

After I sew all the squares together the hunt will be on for fabric for the back and binding, and possibly a border too, depending on dimensions. I think, due to the nature of the squares, a thrifted find is in order.

I will try and get a few of my other finds up in the next coule of days.

    Those squares are lovely – what a great find! I especially like the red and brown floral one near the middle. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!
