A Double Ta - Dah! 'Two Tone Greens'.

Hello Everyone!

Well I'm going in the order I should have posted. I've been out of action but 'I'm Back!' Thanks to dear Mr. Twins who has 'cleared my history' and instead of the horrible jargon I had in my box at the top of the screen and the awlful 303 /414 error. I am now fully restored! Bless him! What would we do without these men?

I thought it was most strange how Sonieta and Karin had managed to post on SIBOL, but I couldn't! It must be the lap top I told myself. Mr. Twins did a little magic on it, and hey presto everything is just fine!

So here we go......

I am very pleased to be showing you two SIBOL Blankets which were in our 'Two Tone Green' Challenge. SIBOLS 66 & 67.

I waited until I had finished them both  to show you. Also the other reason I am a little late is because we have been busy at home with Builders and Roofers!

Here first of all is SIBOL 66

If you see your Square 'please add note!' I should have turned it to the left. 'sorry'.

We have some great patterned Two Tone Squares in this one. 

Then we have SIBOL 67.

SIBOL 67. 'Two Tone Green Grannies'. 'Please add note if you see your Square!'.

I loved all the Squares in this one too!  Unfortunately hieke (Netherlands) sent Two 'Two Tone Squares' with her Royal Wedding Square, and unfortunately I wasn't able to fit them into this Challenge. They were the last two Squares to arrive and of course I had 52 Squares, not enough to make a 3rd Blanket.  I will use your Squares hieke and thank you for sending them to me.

Well I'm going to put the two SIBOLS into their own Slide Show now, sit back and enjoy!




I hope you like the Blankets, and thank you very much for the Squares!

  4. Great job Sue. I particularly like the fringe edging. Nearly there on mine. Just needs shaping.
