I am on a roll


Another quilt finished. This one is from the Charm Square swap from my craft forum. I added a few other blocks because I wanted to make my quilt a little bigger, I has turned out just big enought for a table cloth or a lap quilt.

Notice Board


Yesterday and today I have been working on making a notice board. While I have been cleaning up and getting rid of stuff, and I am by no means done, I found this old frame that I had been saving to put something in, well it is finally used. I did make this for my daughter, but she tells me it is too big for her space, so it is now mine. I found a block I liked "Schoerock Cross" fiddled with it a bit and here it is.

Carpenter's Square

I have already posted a photo of this in the making, here it is complete.

I saw this block on someones Blog, and I can't find where it was now, ( so I apologise profusely to the lovely lady who helped me make it) Anyhow it is done now and quilted. I did have a little trouble with it because I had to make two of the blocks different to the other two so that all the lines matched up, but it all worked well in the end. I am very happy with it, and it is the size for a bassinet or a cot quilt.

My Three Seam quilt

Remember that 3 seam block, well it has become bigger, I used a charm pack to do the centre and went on from there. I can't remember the name of the charm pack, and there is no more of it, so now I will have to find something else to go with the centre. The top photo is what I have so far, the other is a print from EQ7 of how I want it to look when it is done. I have the dark brown fabric and the lighter one picked out, but nothing for the outer border just yet. It is just sort of falling together when I get to the next bit.

I did Something Wrong.

I have no idea what I did, but I seem to have lost all the posts I got from other bloggers, I used to come in and read them, and they have all disappeared. Guess I will have to do it all over again.

March BOM's


I now have three BOM's going, this is the first one to get finished this month, it is from the EQ website if you would like to try it you can find it here
