I've got lots of bits and pieces to share with you this Wednesday. First up are these two blocks I made for the guild block of the month. The request was for Oriental type fabrics so I was able to pull these gold-highlighted japanese fabrics out of my stash - I think they do the job nicely.
Next up are wonky crosses for Amira, made as part of the Simply Solids bee. Comments on these blocks have been funny - one friend thought they were not wonky enough, whereas my Dad was worried I'd made a mistake!
This cute little New Zealand block is heading off to represent me in a quilt far away. I think the blue and white print from Sarah Jane's Out to Sea collection makes a perfect background, and I managed to get the square out of an offcut from a quilt back - bonus! Of course the Flea Market Fancy print is just the right green, as always.
A sewing day with friends on Sunday gave me time to cut strips of lots of different blue and green fabrics and start making these scrappy log cabin blocks with fussy cut centres. I've actually finished the quilt top which is made out of 9 of these blocks - I love super quick projects like this!
I've spent a bit more time on the couch than usual over the last couple of weeks, but the break has done me good and I'm looking forward to spending a bit more time at my sewing machine! Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced:
