Inspiration in Arles...

I have always loved this photo of window shutters I took last year in Arles!

So I have used it as the inspiration for the "Aurifil-Make a Designer Collection"

Competition over at Lily's Quilts

I love the subtlety and delicacy of this range of colours!

And onto other matters.....

I have made some more Bitty Blocks...

No, not volcanoes erupting!

Little Black Dresses- foundation pieced 



I had great fun improvising with these!

There is also a baby quilt on the drawing board!

I hope to have it ready to show you in a few days time!

What have you got on the drawing board?

Happy sewing!



  1. No wigwams?

    Great little dresses - wonder what size they are! Love the bird houses - that owl looking out is a hoot!

  2. Cute! Cute! Cute! I love the little black dresses and birdhouses. Lovely job!

  3. Your blocks are SOOO cute Suz!!! What an amazing job you've done with these!! ... What are you using them in?

  5. I can't wait to see your competition piece! I love the colors and the simplicity of the shutters! Great idea :) Your dresses are adorable and the bird houses are soooo sweet! You have been a busy little bee...bzzzz, bzzzz!!!

    The Aurifil mosaic is awesome, lve it.
    I'd be working on lots of hand sewn blocks if I hadn't hurt my right shoulder, grrrrr.

  10. What a perfect inspiration. I LOVE your thread really picked up those color nuances! And your blocks are so charming. Deb.

  12. I really love the shutter colours a lot. The foundation blocks are wonderful, especially the itty bitty dresses. I'd love to have something new on the wall but it's the ongoing stuff as usual.

  13. The Shutter colours are beautiful!! What a great inspiration photo. Those little dresses are gorgeous!! And so are the bird houses with owls. You're cooking with gas over there!!

  14. I love how creative you were with the thread choices and using the picture in the center. Wish I would have thought of that...really beautiful choices. And those itsy bitsy blocks--charming!
