Just a quicky..

A quick update of what I have been up to this week..

Luckily there was no snow and ice last Friday so me and my friend Joke went to the "Handwerkbeurs"(home crafts fair) in Zwolle as planned.
It was very busy and there were lots of stands with anything from knitting to quilting to embroidery.
Seen lots of nice quilts and we came home full of new ideas and inspiration.

Found some nice reds and blues for my Dear Jane, the browns and greens and creams are for a table runner I'll be making later this year.

Got one block done for the Dear Jane, this is called "Starlight-Starbright".
This one was all traditionally pieced.
Row A is nearly finished now with only two more blocks to go, which I plan do this coming week.

I have started on my new project and have been busy making some of these little blocks...

"Till next time..

Weekly update


What have I been up to this past week?

well...I made 2 more blocks for my Dear Jane quilt. Row A is nearly done. Think I'll stick to doing one row at a time.

This one is called "Cabin Fever", and is foundation pieced (41 pieces). I really like this block, think it would also look great in a larger size block/quilt.


This one is called "Which Points West?".
I reversed appliqued the center melon, then added the thin white borders to the blue square. The blue points were sewn to the white outer borders first and then added to the center square, and as last the curved sides of the blue points were appliqued in place.

Will have to see if I can get some more red and blue fabrics next friday when we go to the home crafts fair in Zwolle. (weather permitting, they are forecasting snow again...)

Furthermore I have completed the top for my Happy Hearts BOM quilt. I love the blue..
Will have to sandwich it next so I can quilt it, think I'll quilt it by machine and not by hand..

Until next time..
