Block Holder with 4 Finsihed Blocks

I have now finished 4 Blocks from "Life is a Celebration".  Slowly but Steady will win the





With all these Blocks made.  I had no where safe to store them.  I remember when I went to tassie a few years back, Sarah had a lovely block holder that she made.   So I attempted to make myself one.  It was quite easy to make, a bit mind boggling without a pattern or instructions but I'm pleased with the outcome. Now my blocks have somewhere to rest, until they sewn together. 

This fabric is from the collection "Memory Lane".  This material was some of the first I had brought when starting quilting.  I aslo have it in blue, cos I just don't decide between them.  I glad it finally has a purpose..

It's my first day off today and it's cold, rainy.  Great time to stay inside wearing trackies, listening to Micheal Buble and catching up on some stitching.
Hope everyone had a lovley weekend.
