Unfortunately this will now be added to the "ready to quilt at a later date" pile, but, I am really happy to have spent the time getting this one done - sometimes you just need some mindless sewing, and I was super happy with the way this pattern enhanced the Eiko fabric bundle.
Saturday was my August stitching with the girls day... other committments meant it was just me and Charlotte this time, but we always have heaps to catch up on :o). Luckily our combined kids are close enough in age that they play together *mostly* wonderfully, as long as there are ample baking supplies!
I decided to knuckle down and get something achieved on the Tillies Lane BOM. My stack of hourglass type blocks has grown slowly and erratically, and I knew that I just had to move onto another stage, if the project was ever going to achieve any momentum. So Block One of the central panel was created. This is my latest scrap project, so everything except for the background cream on creams, is leftovers from other projects.
My next focus project is getting the Bluebirds and Berries quilt quilted. First things first, deciding on the backing and getting it basted. I knew I had extra backing fabric set aside for my huge applique quilt (all ready for the day it is finally finished), so to work out what the excess was (and whether there was enough for the B&B quilt) - I had to lay it all out. It's been a while since this one has been out of the bag... enjoy the eye candy!

So that's me all caught up for the week, what have you been up to?
