Tea Towel Quilt Progress

Am finally making some progress on the London Tea Towel quilt.   Have made three more blocks and sewed one section of the quilt together so i can see how it is going to go together.

The first two blocks were made with pieces of fabric given to me by a gal in the London area.  She had seen my posts about this quilt and offered to send me some little scraps that she had.   Among them were these two guardsmen.  

Next up to be completed was a double decker bus.  The bus has a sign on it saying "I love London" and that fabric was also part of the scraps that I was give.   And just perfect for the bus.  =)

I've also sewn the first 4 blocks of the quilt together.   These will be in the bottom right hand corner of the quilt.    There are still areas of the quilt that i need to decide how I want to fill in, but I'm glad that it is finally taking shape.

Gratitudes;

1. I didn't have to go into work at the store today - a blessing with the snow storm here today.

2. I've been able to shovel snow w/o having a coughing attack while doing it.
