Going Great Guns!

(My Mum loved to say that!)

Yes, progress has been made in the last few days....

Two quilts ready to baste...

The Pies and Tarts....

And the "Twist and Shout".....

I've decided to hand quilt this one!

And I have moved on a little with my hexies....

Finally I pulled this one out of 'isolation' to see how we felt about one another....

Does it still look like a 'dog's breakfast' ?

 I've decided it deserved to be completed.....

So I am making all the little 4 & 1/2  inch blocks for two of the edges!

Linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced,

for WIPS Wednesday!
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

What are you working on this fine Wednesday?

Happy sewing!



  1. Stand clear please, stand clear - Suz is on a roll.....big time! Go Suz!

  2. Noooo, definitely not a dog's breakfast! Looks awesome!

  3. Hi! I think that 'dog's breakfast' looks very delicious! And your other quilts are going to be so beautiful, too! Love the hand quilting!

  4. Great guns? More like cannons! You go Suz, ride the momentum and clear out the UFOs.

  5. Go Pogo Go!! You have been busy!! And it all looks wonderful!! Are your pies appliqued? Twist and shout really suits your perle stitches. I really like your Dogs Breakfast quilt!! It's got so much movement and depth! Your spotty hexagon is so much fun! I'm a sucker for red and white polka dots!

  6. Wow! That's all fab. How do you manage to get so much done?

  7. Wow, I think you stole my mojo!
    Twist and Shout looks lovely with the hand quilting. You have really been going great guns this week. Love the Dog's Breakfast blocks, great colours.

  8. Your hand quilting looks awesome, I have yet to gather the courage for that...

  9. LOL! Go Pogo Go!!! hee hee! Your stitching looks great on the Twist and Shout! This will be so fun - just like the dog's breakfast! Trust me...I have actually seen the dog's breakfast and this looks much better:) I can't wait to see how you put all your hexies together!

  10. Love ALL your projects! Your pinwheels are making me want to try hand quilting again.

  11. You are one busy/productive quilter! I love your hand quilting. I aspire to hand quilt so nicely!

  12. What a lot of quilting to do, so much fun! I love the "dogs breakfast", so glad you are going to work on it.

  13. Oh wow! The handquilting is gorgeous on your whirleygig blocks! Love it! The hexy flower is so cute too. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  14. Hi Suz, Your sewing is always spectacular.

  15. Just checking out the WIP post on Freshly Pieced and thought WOW, another Suz (mine short for Suzanne but saves some of that typing :) So hello from New Zealand, and well done on all that finishing!!

  16. Well, I don't know what dog's breakfast is supposed to look like, but that is an interesting quilt, you've got going on!
    And what are you hand quilting with? Is that an embroidery floss? Perl Cotton? Doesn't look like traditional quilting thread.
    I pretty much only hand quilt, but have not ventured into anything my grandmother would not recognize as quilters thread, LOL! Maybe it's time!
    You Go Girl!
