I became a finisher.
Now, I have returned to my earlier self and procrastinate.
I started to piece some drunkards path blocks - I want to make two lap quilts for a couple of friends, but I'm wavering on the layouts. Here are some possibilities. I might make them mirror images, one with the dark quarter circles and the other with the light. Any ideas?
I need to commit to a couple of things, one of which is to finish stuff before I start anything else. Other current WIPs are ... read more
Hooray, it is done. The top section really isn't darker than the bottom section. I think this is just shadow from under the house. read more
Only four left to make! I've started to put up some of the sashing that I originally cut up.
That blue sashing at the top right might have to go.
Even after I make the last four blocks, I've still go heaps of little nine patches to make - there's only one up so far, but it is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I think this will be a very pretty quilt. Not sure if I should give it away or keep it for myself.
Hexagons so far for my not GMFG really quilt. These ... read more
I've snuck in a bit of sewing during the week and this WIP is for two blocks for the tone it down quilt, not for the quilt itself :-(
For block 14, all the little bits are sewn together, but there's still a fair bit ...read more
I had a big sewing session last night and this morning. Blocks eleven and twelve are now done - It takes about four solid hours of sewing to complete two blocks - that is with most of the pieces already cut.
Blocks so far...
I've also completed a few more flowers for my hexi quilt. I only make these on the train, down at the dog park and at night time if I watch a bit of telly. These hexis have one inch sides, excluding the seam allowance, and I've been sewing them together with a running stitch. This is ... read more
I'm not sure if it counts as a finish, but the lap sized flimsy for my sister's husband is done. Have to baste it and quilt it now. Fred is still watching those kangaroos.
I've also started to sew together my unsuccessful low volume quilt that has no purpose. Four seams left to sew and then I might get around to quilting it.
No progress on the APQ Tone it down QAL, as I need to finish these first.
I've crocheted another floor rug, but no pics here.
Now that I have nothing left to do ... read more
Halfway there! (excluding the sashing and nine patch cornerstones).
Blocks 8 and 9
|Ten down and ten to go|
Whew! I've done blocks seven and eight now, as well as finished the flimsy for my sister's husband.
Here are blocks seven and eight - I'm not sure which is which, as I am piecing two at a time, to save a bit of time. I'm linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday. Check out everyone's WIPs! http://www.freshlypieced.com/2014/02/wip-wednesday-semi-wordless.html
|This one's a bit the same as some others|
|The circle is much more prominent that the cross on this one - never mind.|
|All eight blocks so far|
This one will be off to Canberra next week.
My other finish was a rag rug for the back landing, made from op shop sheets. I've already started another one with the rest of the sheets, but these colours don't go with anything in the house. They do seem to work with the peacock!

Another block done - only 16 to go.
|Block so far and some blocks in waiting|
|Block 3 again - the last shot wasn't very clear|

Here’s Roxane Cerda, C&T Publishing’s Acquisition Editor, to present her Top Ten (and just a few more) List from the Fall 2013 Quilt Market. Though Fall Market seemed to start out a bit shaky (don’t even ask how many rough starts I heard about) the show turned out to be one of my favorites. It [...]read more
Just completed for Judy's "Sewing and Fabric" in the Summit Town Center. Now I have to rewrite the instructions to sell the pattern. Everyone loves the smaller one in her store, but I am not so sure about the colors. I like this one much better. Will offer the pattern here too as soon as it is completed. The quilting was done with an APQS and Hartley Fence.
