It’s funny, with all the time I had this week, I didn’t sew that much (in relative terms you understand ;o) ) Instead I did loads of cutting, both of fabric and paper templates, and went to see Sheila at her annual quilt show for her students (BTW Sheila, who won?)
Finishes this week:
Sew Bee Joyful block, albeit completely backwards o.O:
Carl the Chameleon, who I was pattern testing for Joanna :
Zakka Style pincushion, after I rescued my
lizard bedding crushed walnut shells from the courier:
In progress this week:
Retro Flowers for the QAL, all the pieces are cut, and the centres of the flowers pieced:
My Precious quilts, paper templates are cut, and much playing with layouts has commenced (more on this tomorrow)
To be worked on this week:
Piece Bee With You block for April – I may or may not have been putting this off while I struggled to come up with a workable idea!
Retro Flowers – need to tackle those curves!
My Precious – finalise layouts and start cutting (eek!)
Linking up, as ever, to:
Love Carl – can I adopt him?
cute paper piecing!!!
I keep meaning to cut out Retro Flowers, and then distracted…
Looks like a pretty successful week there. Still love that chameleon!
No time for chatter, still loads to do!
Wanna come round and do a stack of cutting for me too? 😉 I'm guessing that'll be a no… Whatcha got planned for Carl?
Carl looks friendly – have a photo of my hubby as a boy with one of Carl's grandparents on his arm!
Start sewing those curves, woman!
Carl is ADORABLE! Great paper piecing.
I want a Carl! He is so cute!
curves curves curves! you can do it! – still love carl, how cute!
I love all your blocks – that chameleon is too cute!
Still crazy for Carl over here! Having fun watching all this develop.
Ahh, you know how I feel about your paper piecing.. *swoon*, and super cute pin cushion! xo
I love the teeny weeny tiny bunting on your Zakka pincushion!! Well done for getting lots done!
Whenever I take a look at your blog and see the things you've made, it makes me feel like you're one bussy bee, being very modest. Fantastic work!
Glad to see you rescued the walnut shells from the courier. Pincushion looks great, especially the tiny bunting!
The lizard is simply gorgeous – nothing like any Carl I know! xx
Lovely stuff – especially like the coffee pot – even backwards!
you have been busy! The coffee pot is brilliant!
I really do have to try paper piecing. Carl is so delightful I want one of my own. Great stuff even if you didn't get much sewing done and the coffee pot looks fine to me.
You make me feel like I never get anything done! How do you do it all?!?
The winner was the big sampler – last but one on the slideshow.
Loving the lizard too.
Great job this week! Your retro flowers quilt is going to be so cute! 🙂
love your pp blocks! the pincushion is adorable too! can't wait to see the retro flowers come together.
you are a paper piecing goddess! i bow to your mad skills!
that was smart to piece all your centers first. I love the teapot. Lucky bee
I love Carl even more. Great paper piecing.
