4×7 Sewing Challenge: Week 3 from Riddle and Whimsy

The third week into the 4×7 Sewing Challenge hosted by Berry Barn Designs has seen some projects near the finish line which makes me feel super accomplished!

First up, I spent the first few days on the computer making a new blog header, and then I decided I needed new quilt labels to match my new blog look! I love the new look of my header so I think I’ll be happy enough to keep these labels ongoing for a while.

{ Some Things Take Forever. } from {The Sweetest Dreams}

Like my Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of the Month...................for 2012!!!  Geez, I just finished the last 12 inch block last week. This wasn't the only quilty project I was sewing , it just kept getting pushed aside while I worked on other things.
 
 
 
This is the first BOM that I signed up for and I made a really poor showing. I had all good intentions to make each block as it arrived but stuff happened.
 
Anyway, I purchased the finishing kit and the backing so now I have to get moving and finish this baby up. For those ...

Playing with something New from Lilabelle Lane

"Smitten"

I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it.
The instructions are for hand piecing but it can also be Machine pieced but I am 
English Paper Piecing (Templates are in the pattern)


I am planning on using my Bonnie and Camille Scraps and stash for this one.



My first block was fun playing with stripes.






I think this next block is my favourite so far :o)


And a progress shot so far.

True North from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

I bought a pattern today because I love this one so much. It's a new pattern from She Quilts A Lot called True North. I can feel a Quilt-A-long in the air. 

The quilt shown is in Moda Bella and Bonnie and Camille fabrics but would be fabulous in any collection.

Jelly Roll and Charm friendly, this design would suit confident beginners and above. The comprehensive pattern with loads of diagrams has instructions for three sizes; crib, lap and twin.


The pattern is available in paper and digital from Peta's e-shop found here.


The block makes a perfect ...

"Snapshots" from Lilabelle Lane

It's the 15th January and that means that the first block for the
"Snapshots Quilt" was released today.



I have order a kit from the Fat Quarter Shop but they don't ship until the yardage of Daysail is released next month so off to raid my Bonnie and Camille scraps it was.



Not to sure how I have survived so long without these mini design boards.
They make piecing and breeze.

 Ta-da Block one is done.



The block instructions can be found HERE.

until next time,
hugs Sharon

some more stashing from Charm About You


I'm late showing these, they actually came a little while ago but here's what I've added to my stash recently...


I won this pretty bundle of Calico by Dear Stella from Cuts of Cotton in an instagram giveaway. A beautiful rainbow of colours and the print is so cute!


I ordered these cute lace zips from My Fabric House, they have lots of great colours and free UK p&p.


And then I couldn't help but get these beauties from the Fat Quarter Shop: Edith in Good Luck Green, Follie by Lotta Jansdotter - love that soft ...

Aurifil Designer Blocks 2014 finish from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

December marked the last month of a fabulous year of blocks from the Aurifil Designer BOM 2014. To finish the quilt I framed each block in a spool and set them on point with a specially designed spool block in the centre.


The words, "Love is the thread that binds all quilters" is embroidered on the block.


The PDF pattern for the centre spool block can be found here and the on-point lay out design instructions can be found at www.patsloan.com or www.auribuzz.wordpress.com.
