Happy Wednesday and happy April :o) To kick you off for the month, feel free to download this month’s calendar page.
On to the WIP part of the post, I was working on Saturday, as well as a couple of evenings last week so I wasn’t as productive as I’d hoped, but on the plus side, I got tomorrow off as compensation, so I have an extra long weekend. I did get some quilting done on my UK Mini Swap mini – I haven’t FMQ’ed in ages, in fact the last project I remember doing it on was on my gran’s birthday mini nearly 18 months ago! It was fun coming up with the pattern, but my forearms do not like the vibrations from the machine bed when I’m FMQ’ing, so I don’t think I’ll be embarking on using it for any king sized quilts… I also got a secret wee thing done with some Bonnie & Camille scraps, and made the lining for the easter basket for the calendar photo shoot above, so not entirely unproductive I suppose.
Finishes This Week:
Bunny basket lining for the calendar shoot above
Secret wee B&C thingy
In Progress This Week:
You may or may not recall from a few weeks ago that these 4 blocks were for my UK Mini Swap mini:
Now they’re sewn together, and this is the quilting I’ve done in all the circle and part circle bits. Clearly I’ve not buried the threads yet ;o):
I’m working on circles in the rings around the flower centres, and then the rings in the pattern are going to be done in a diagonal grid.
To Be Worked On This Week:
Finish the mini
Paint and partially tile the kitchen
Maybe start on my next Quilt Now project if the fabric arrives
Hope you all have a great week! Linking up with Lee and the gang:
