Slow progress and a bath mat!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my quilt, its very encouraging. 
For those of you who said you'd like to but don't know how to get started, there are loads of utube videos that can get you started.
I am still stitching but very slowly! Too many things to do and also I have been out and about!
But my cut-thro Beach Hut is growing. I have been very naughty and bought some new charts from that evil on line shop! I will show those next time.

And I saw something like this on Pinterest so had a go myself.
Sewing a nine square block is a good way to use up scraps.
This is  bathroom mat and it works as we are using it!! 
I intend to make some more with smaller squares for the blocks so I can fit more blocks in a similar size.
It is all good practice to match corners.

Happy days
