I couldn't resist. I love the look of the blocks in the vice versa BOM at Gen X Quilters and had to join in. It uses 5 different colours but I am thinking of using my fat quarter bundle of sunrise kona cotton. I think it should work.I am going to the quilt show in Sydney on Wednesday so will hold off making a decision till then.

nested churn dash mini and hope to quilt it soon so it is really finished. The pattern is by quilt Jane at Want it, Need it, quilt! and is all over blogs at the moment. Mine is simplified similar to Carrie at LaVieEnRosie. I love the Australian fabrics but I already want to make it again with solid batiks. Another one to add to the to do list. Linking to freshly pieced WIP Wednesday.

5 inch economy block from Red Pepper Quilts. I used a scrap of umbrella prints. I have no idea what to do with it but it is very cute. lego batman block which still needs the mouth embroidered and will become a cushion or placemat. This is free and one of many patterns from Quiet Play, a blog I follow. Kristy has so many great patterns availabe in her craftsy shop including freebies and BOMs. 7 inch economy block from the Quilters Cache. This uses scraps from a quilt I made my dad and will be given to him for his birthday, hopefully with a something else I will come up with soon. He is very hard to buy for.

Falling Maple Quilt by Miss Print but have never made a maple leaf block so thought I would test it out on a smaller scale first. The blocks are from the free pattern Modern Maples throw quilt. I got the idea for a runner from the flickr group. I loved this one! Spring Quarter Quilt. Another free pattern, this one by teaginny designs. I was planning to do an allover matchstick quilting but couldn't find a thread that worked so I did block quilting again. I think it will be a while before I do matchstick quilting again as much as I like how it looks.
