I love cricket

Because it gives me non interrupted time in my sewing room.

Its Thursday and look what I have accomplished so far this week..... The first three blocks in my Jelly roll sampler quilt.

Block 1. Tulip

Block 2 Rocky road

Block 3 star choice

Before you start making this quilt, or any quilt with a jelly roll its a good idea to sort your colours first.  Here are my 12 bags of strips ready and selected to make each of the blocks that make up the quilt.

I am so pleased at how nicely the points have turned out.

I have also managed to make the next two two blocks in my FWQA.
............Here they are

Block 60. Noon& light
Block 61. Northern lights
And last but not least, keeping true to my white rabbit list I have made a start on the final block in the Adelaide floral sampler cutting out and fusing the applique ready for stitching on block 9 (the final block). 

Once I have appliqued this centre piece on I have to put the scrolls on 7 of the blocks, so that will be on the February list.  I have signed up for a new BOM called Pond house, but I have asked the LPS to hold off sending me this till March as I really have to be a good girl and finish of this BOM before I start another one.  I find when I have a deadline / commitment I actually am a good girl and get it all done.

Here is a sneaky peek of what pond house looks like


  1. Cricket must be really fantastic. your week's work seems like a month's work.
    I love your fabric choice for your jelly roll sampler. It's gorgeous. I love Fig Tree fabrics.
    Your adelaide floral will be magnificent when you finish it but it must have taken you lots of sewing hours.

  2. WOW busy busy girl I see... love the blocks and your new BOM looks fantastic xxx
