I’ve not been very well for the past couple of days unfortunately – ’tis the season for bugs circulating around offices apparently! Still, I managed to spend time with my mum and dad and gran at the weekend, and got some sewing done before I was struck down. The latest round of Brit Bee is now under way, and I got Di’s block done with much assistance from the Clearly Perfect Angles that I reviewed the other day – so many HSTs!
Finishes This Week:
There’s one project all packed up and off to Quilt Now Towers, but apparently I forgot to take any photos of the fabric before I started cutting, so you’ll need to stay completely in suspense as I’ve barely any left!
Here’s Di’s block though. Hers is on top, and the one that Hadley made (in rather shorter order!) for me. Di’s colour scheme is a mixture of grey patterned backgrounds with up to 3 colours of patterned fabrics for the foreground. Mine is a pure white background with up to 3 colours of solids for the foreground. I love how different they look! The blocks finish at 15″ x 30″ in case you were wondering, and please excuse the less than stellar lighting:
In Progress This Week:
I got this wee Moda Building Blocks 6″ block done for my Clearly Perfect Angles demo the other day:
The voile quilt I mentioned last week has been basted using the Stitchery’s lovely big cutting tables, but will have to be set aside for a while until I’ve got all my Christmas projects out of the way.
I’ve also been finding a few moments here and there to work on the secret project, but alas, no pics yet.
To Be Worked On This Week:
‘Tis the season to start working on Christmas presents and I’ve had 2 requests in so far, with one pattern sketched up, so I’d better start working on them!
Class sample for my stocking class in a couple of weeks, which is all sold out now
Hope you all have a great week! Linking up with Lee and the gang:
love the ombre blocks. Think I'm going to try this in the spring for the son and partner. Seems, to be the season for not being well, haven't been too great myself here the last week or so.
I love the two Brit Bee blocks and am looking forward to seeing the next block!
