A few blocks from Espritpatch

Not many of those but just a few! I made one filler block for the Gipsy WIfe quilt before we went

and last night I finally managed to turn on my machine again (first time since we came back). I had planned/hoped for some sewing time every night but there was just too much work to catch up with.
Anyway, I made this week's block Hope from Hartford
and also a square in a square filler block
And while we were on our cruise, I also made my overdue hexie flowers. That was my 72th sets, which means ...

Flowers and one more block from Espritpatch

For some reasons I have been completely falling off the wagon for the Inchy Hexie Swap and hadn't yet finished my April flowers. So I took them with me last time I was waiting for the kids at a club, only to realise that I had moved stuff for one pouch to another and I didn't have any thread with me... How is that even possible?

Anyway, we had a really nice day on Saturday so I sat in the garden and hand sew for most of the afternoon. It was just so nice (and something I so ...

The Rainbow Connection Update from Curlicue Creations

It's been a while since I've shown a progress update on The Rainbow Connection hexie quilt.  I've been working on it in the evenings here and there, I just haven't taken any recent pictures.  Here it is.  I'm contemplating sewing it into a star with an outline of black, white or gray and then filling in the missing triangle shapes with V's of more rainbow color, but that could change.

Have a super day!

Just a few more blocks from Espritpatch

I have been playing with more scraps to make blocks for the Long Time Gone quilt along and I have managed to finish a few more blocks, still trying to stay ahead of the game as the pace will pick up and it will be hard to keep up!
I finished the Square in a Square Star block

2 Crosses of the UK (4 more are needed!)

and 4 pineapple blocks. There are 16 of these in the quilt and I just coudn't envisage doing them all within a week.

And I also made my 2 flowers for the ...

Catherine's Wheel from Charm About You

--- to link up to the 2017 FALclick here! ---

Well I don't know what she's going to call her quilt but it definitely is starting to look like a Catherine Wheel to me! Here are the bee blocks I made for Catherine:

This is the Fireworks Block by Marcia Hohn, the pattern can be found here. I have to say I struggled with it a little bit - it made more sense when I read each page and the fabric requirements are at the end! I also had a hard time printing out the templates for the larger triangles ...

A new project.... from Espritpatch

Oh I know I shouldn't....even more so at this time of year... but I just couldn't resist the cuteness and I love the idea behind the Advent Sew Along. Now I have only started yesterday so of course I am already 5 blocks behind... but who knows I might eventually catch up.

Really what's not to love in this so cute hexie log cabin, 2 of my favorite patterns

These are - oh so small - despite the 22 pieces of fabric required for one block. The logs are 3/8' finished! Great scrap buster, even for tiny ...

Last few blocks from Espritpatch

And a few more blocks before the month comes to an end. This week has been mainly about hand sewing, because my machine is away from me.
I squeezed one more Wanta Fanta block before the week-end, so I now need 5 more to finish my quilt top.

I also made my October hexie flowers for Carrie. I think it's the first time I am making batik flowers in 5 years + of swapping.

And one Lucy Boston block, I have a few more to make to catch up now...

My total block for October is now 38!
