Another quilt top complete!

I really enjoyed making these blocks!

I was pattern testing for Quilt Design Duo.....

and I'm expecting it to be available on their website 

next month.

I loved the gentle curves and the fact that there 

were no real seams to match.

I decided to sash all sides and was delighted to find

 the daisy print at my local discount fabric shop!

I haven't decided on its official name yet, but I'm

 sure something will come to me while I quilt it.

On a side note, these blue beauties arrived in the 

mail recently!

I'm planning a Flowering Snowball quilt with these!

But I have my Boston Pavement blocks to get 

back to yet.

Happy sewing!

Have I shown you these?

This is a bit of a summary of what I've been 

sewing lately....

four more Boston Pavement blocks....

                 in a variety of prints and colours.

I've made twelve blocks now.

A little diversion of zipper pouch making....

and some pattern testing with these blocks.


So it looks like I've started another quilt!

Yes, green again!

I have a little boy in mind for this!

I wanted to use a blue and grey colour palette but I 

just don't have that many blue fabrics.

So I'm doing a swap with Linda @Koka Quilts

These are what I am sending.

Go to Linda's blog and have a look at the beauties 

she's sending me! 

Until next time....

happy sewing!

Did you know that a group of hedgehogs is known as 

a Prickle?

Cute, hey?

So it seemed a very appropriate name for my 

latest quilt finish.

I quilted some simple vertical and horizontal lines on 

my Juki and 

then hand quilted, with quilting cotton around each 

of the feature squares.

The wool batting gave it a loftier look than I 

am used to,

but perfect for a baby all the same.

The colours were not easy to photograph....

It looks much better in the daylight!

A view of the back

Ready to be gifted tomorrow!
