I finally finished my Swoon Block Number Three (this was supposed to be the March block - whoops) and started cutting Block Four for April at the same time.
|I'm popping the completed smaller units up on my design wall as they get sewn together. This is one block where you really need to keep an eye on placement.|
Friday quilting with the ladies yesterday, meant a bit more progress on my Gail Pan B&B BOM - see, it's getting bigger.
|I really should have cropped this photo shouldn't I?|
|A close up of the cute as fabric. Nice and girly without being too young or old.|
|While it has been quite a while since I put this together, I hadn't remembered that this block got a mix of fabrics. Did you notice it in the first picture? Amazing how the brain reads similar fabrics as the same.|
This pattern is a blown up version of another quilt top I made, and one day it will be it's turn to be finished!
I have been slowly putting together some ideas for my stash of bluey/greeney with a touch of gold/mustard solid fat quarters, and have got to the stage where I would quite like to start cutting them up... but you know, while I haven't actually been that good at my resolution to only buy necessary fabric (there's been a whole lot of unnecessary going on), I have been not too bad at not starting new things. Well, apart from the challenge quilt and the Russian nesting doll quilt - but they were baby things so do they really count? With my main projects on the go at the moment, they mostly have quite subtle colour combinations - and I'm itching to do something totally bright and loud as well. Will I succeed in keeping a lid on these urges... you'll have to stay posted and see what happens.
Hopefully I'll remember to link up with What a Hoot and Lee at Freshly Pieced.
