Here is one of my furry friends, Josephine taking a nap on my sewing table, she seemed quite intrigued watching the needle bob up and down.
As you would know I am participating in the FWQA and got really stuck on one block " night and day" I made and remade this block so many times and here is the best I could come up with. Its OK, you can laugh ( I did.).
HHm, lets see , it looks ok, sort of, a bit wonky, unless you view it side on
And see that it looks like a little hill or a bra cup- maybe I should go into the quilted bikini top business.
..................................................................I phoned a friend (or emailed her at least).
I recall seeing this block on the 12 inch blog made to perfection - as all of her blocks are, so I asked a huge favour. Would she help me out and make me a block for my FWQA.
Look what arrived in the post today
PERFECTION.Leena did comment in a note with the block that she did find this quite a challenge in the 6 inch size, (phew so its not just me) and sent me some precut templates for paper piecing, and some black and yellow fabric to try it out on and practice.
Here are the two blocks other FWQA blocks that I have made this week
|58. Mothers dream|
Here is a selection of some of my favourites, I think I will need to purchase one or two or a darker royal blue so its not all pale - stay tuned to see them turn into stars.
I also went white fabric shopping today for the white as I needed 4 meters for this quilt (seems like a lot but thats what the pattern called for).
I don't tend to purchase a lot of fabric in Spotlight, but do find their tone on tone whites quite good, and they cost half the price of the LQS, I also purchase by batting from them when they have a sale and buy a bundle of it at a time.
So thats me up to date, what have you been doing this week?
