Most of my sewing lately seems to be blocks for something or other!
Bee blocks are so much fun and for our Happiness circle @ do. Good Stitches, Marika wanted us to do the oh so popular and fun x & + blocks.
The colours she chose were blue and green with low volume triangles.
I am also doing the Lucky Stars BOM with Elizabeth @ Don't Call Me Betsy
The first block was out in January, and after I made it I changed my mind on the size I wanted to do!
That called for a re-do of the block into a 6"
These small blocks don't take very long to do, so February is also done!
Love this small size and the Kaffe Fassett fabrics, including the shot cottons!
One of my favourite things is testing blocks for Kristy @ Quiet Play!
She does paper piecing patterns that are just so much fun, and in fact she has a BOM in progress right now called And Sew On.... all sewing themed blocks!
These blocks aren't part of the BOm but are patterns she has designed....
The cutest ever Octopus!
and the latest one is a retro oven!
Are you doing the Triple Zip Along?
I did mine on Sunday while it was snowing!
had a lot of fun doing this, and blogged about it here.
I am doing my first ever EPP project!!! Thanks to Benta who sent me a sample and tutorial!!
Also thanks to Patti E-R, who gave us a demonstration at our last meeting of the Saskatoon MQG.
We exchanged ugly FQ's to make anything, and I decided on a EPP rose star to make a tote bag...or something. It completely depends on how it all turns out!
I don't think FQ I pulled out of the bag is ugly at all!
My only problem with this technique, is that I need daylight to do the stitching! I just cannot do it in the evening without squinting and biting my tongue. Ouch!
I actually do have WIP's!!!
1-I'm still planning the quilting for Starry, Starry Night
2- No name triangle top is completely pieced, and the backing is almost done too
3-Curve It Up QAL is in progress and over half way done!
Well, that sums up my last couple of weeks!
Linking up with guest host, Jenelle @ Freshly Pieced
and Monika @ The Needle and Thread Network.
Have a great sewing week!
