bits of this and bits of that

I don't have anything to show for this weeks efforts in the sewing room
I have pinned the Carousel quilt ready for quilting and hope to make a start on that today
I have finished all of the applique on the Adelaide floral sampler quilt
My package of border fabric has arrived in the mail from the Fat quarter shop so I have cut the sashing and border strips ready to piece together the butterscotch and roses sampler quilt.

I have made and sent by blocks for my 12 and 6 inch block swap recipients and posted the pics on the relative blogs and lastly I have signed up for yet another on line BOM.

This one suits me to a T with my love of shabby fabrics
Its called country cottages and is by shabby fabrics - its a great one for using up the odd scraps, I am going to make mine shabby but with a French influence.  I am a little behind as Jan and Feb's blocks are launched with March off the printer on March 7th. 

So recapping my plans for the rest of next week :
1. Quilt the carousel quilt
2. Add borders to jelly roll sampler quilt
3. Make at least 4 FWQA blocks - I have slipped behind on this project and as yet have not made any blocks this month
4. Try and start block 1 of the country cottages BOM

So it seems as though I am going to be busy I better get off the computer and onto the sewing machine.
