I finished the last 6 squares so I thought I would post them side by side. Now the 'fun' part is arranging them so that I can put the sashing between them and then the borders. I think they turned out pretty nice. My young sister says I should call it a Kakabeka Falls quilt because the colour remind her of clean stones you would find near a waterfall. Kakabeka Falls is a very large waterfall we have near here. It is almost as high as Niagara Falls. I wish I had that kind of imagination.

I have been working on my squares for my quilting class. I have 7 done but I took a picture of 6 of them. Just because it was easier to lay them out and arrange them. There seems to be a lot of burgundy in these 6 but I am sure the other 6 will complement them with the browns. Each square is different, and there are only 2 actual squares and a centre square, it depends on how you lay out the pieces when you finish them. I have tried to use all the 8 fabrics equally so that there is a good mix of colours when I am finished. I would like to get the last 5 done before next weeks class but I think that I might be a bit optimistic. We will see. I also have to go and buy more fabric this week for the sashing as I don't have enough. I haven't decided my borders yet either as I want to see the final result before choosing more colours or some of the same for the borders.
