I can't get used to having all this spare time at weekends now that my studying has ended - my next lot has just come through but its nowhere near as intense as my AAT was.
So all this spare time means a lot more sewing:
I started a new block, to use up my scraps:
its called pineapple blossom - and you get a bonus mini block with the off cuts too. I am thinking that I may ask for this block for my month in the bee a Brit stingy bee my month is may so I will see where I am by then.
And I finished the purple quilt top
I will get the soft fleecy backing on it today-according to the weather man our snow day is today, with 5-7 cm expected, but then after Friday, I will believe it when I see it!!
Snowing again here, so guess you have it already, happy sewing day xxxReplyDelete
Love the pineapple block design, with the bonus from the offcuts. And your star looks terrific.ReplyDelete
That background color does look great with your star! And you have to love a block that gives you a two-for-one deal!ReplyDelete
