Family day...........

The two little great-grandsons entertained us again.  The littlest one is 1 1/2 years old.  His mom asked him if he wanted a Kringla and he looked up at me and smiled.  He knows where they come from.

I found some time to sew a fourth block with the Australian fabrics.  I made the first 3 in March 2014.  I just found the pieces for a 4th block in a box so I sewed it.  I was going to use the first 3 in a table runner but now I think I will use all 4 of these and try to do a medallion quilt.
I also looked for binding fabric for this quilt and I wanted it a little darker than the sashing.  I think this one looks pretty good.

Those blocks are so pretty, I think a medallion quilt will be great.

What awesome looking blocks these are Wanda. Very unusual and eye-catching fabrics give them a very distinctive look. The first one on the left is my favorite, maybe because of the zebra fabric. They are so you and will make a fabulous looking quilt.

Wow, wow, wow Wanda ! Those Austrailian fabric blocks are amazing ! I've never seen fabrics like that. I like your choice of a darker binding also.

And you are so blessed to have great grandsons, babies in families always make us smile, with all they do and say.

I LOVE that 1 1/2 to 3 year age! The African fabrics look so pretty.
