My Unfinished Patchwork Quilt

Hi all you lovely bloggers out there, hope you are all well.!!!!
The nights are starting to pull in now and that Autumn chill is in the air, but i don't mind, i love the winter, it gives me a break from gardening to do more patchwork and other craft work.
  I started making this quilt a year ago at my patch work class. I am now on my 14th square and have another 6 to go before i can piece the quilt together. I have chosen a few of my favourite squares for you to see. When i have finished this friendship quilt it will fit my daughters double bed. Hopefully i aim to get it finished by Christmas.
 The patterns are from The New Sampler Quilt book recommended by Sonja my teacher.

I would like to thank all my followers for all the kind comments they have given me. I can tell you they mean such a lot. THANK YOU ALL.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
