Start of the Akita charity quilt

So what have I been doing today? I made some quick doodles for a charity quilt idea mainly for Akita dogs as Tam was a lovely Akita breed. I cut out thirty six blocks from some cotton sheeting and made a start on the middle cutting little squares out of some fat quarters on yellow Lillie's. I thought the colours would go well with the corner blocks which I have painted here using fabric paint. You can just about see a rough sketch at the top of the photo with an outline of a dog which I hope to do in dark brown. While the painted fabric is drying,I'm going to take a rest then get the sewing machine out to start on the log cabin blocks, as the blocks are quick and easy and I love log cabins. Outside we've had Jack Frost dancing round the windows and freezing anything it can. I will keep you all updated how this experiment is working out, have fun allxxx.
