I met my Possum Magic friends through the New Bloggers' blog hop and I'm really happy that I did. It's hard to imagine that I didn't know these people back in April. Now we've all completed our centre blocks and are working on the first borders of someone else's block. I've finished adding to Alice's block and now it's time to post it onto Sharon.
I didn't have to buy any fabrics for this first border - they were all in my stash. Here's a before shot of Alice's centre block:
I turned it on point, added a thin border, and then the 4 triangle corner pieces to complete it. Alice and I both live in Wellington so I've shown it to her and she's happy with it. She won't see it again for many months as it travels around Australia, and then back to Wellington via Tauranga some time in 2015.
You can follow our progress on the Possum Magic tab at the top of my blog. I'm the third person to finish the first border.
The final group in the New Bloggers' blog hop posted their introductory posts yesterday. I'd encourage you to check them out - you might find some new inspiration amongst them. The first 4 names on this list are all members of Possum Magic :
