This is the first block from the Daisy-Do BOM from Jenni at Elefantz. I thought I had seed beads the right colour-I didn't. I thought I bought enough buttons-I didn't. This is as finished as it will be until I get into Newcastle.This is a wall hanging from an Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I love the pattern but I think I need to use a background with some colour or do some stippling. As the free motion quilting is not going anywhere at the moment-this is finished for now.

This was to try raw edge applique with hand blanket stitch in preparation for doing this

Another cushion in the blue/purple combo. I think it is time to move onto something else.
What about some PJ's? I went shopping with a Friend and we got some fabric to make pyjamas. We are getting together tomorrow so B and I should have some new PJ's soon.

Another One

Another cushion.

This one is from Moda Bakeshop. It is one of the cushions from Cushion Couture by Julie and John. I plan to make more.

I also made another mini triangle with the charm squares I had left from Grans mini. This is a tutorial from Oh Fransson.

The Block

Cindy from Hyacinth Quilt Design has a tutorial for the block. When I saw it I thought it would make a great cushion. Turns out I was right. Thanks Cindy.

Minis For Gran

I sent these to my mum last week. I kept the quilting very simple so I would be able to do it.

Here is the back.I am getting better at the straight line quilting. I cant say the same about stippling though.

Block 9

Here is Block 9 of the Jelly Roll Quilt Along at Moose on the Porch Quilts. Only 3 to go!

Quilt Alongs

Here is my completed quilt top for the Charming Girls Quilt Along. I need to practice my free motion quilting before I do this. So of course I should be concentrating on that and not starting anything new.
So here is what I am doing. First a sew along with the Nancys. I used to sew with Nancy and Miss Nancy when I lived in the states. Sometimes we just met and sewed, other times we all made the same project. We have decided to do the same project from a far. We are going to do a disappearing 9 patch with a difference that Nancy spotted at Jo's Country Junction. You end up with what looks like charm squares with sashing and cornerstones. I am using orientals with grey sashing and black cornerstones.
OK the next 2 things are over at Elefantz. Jenni has lots of great patterns and ideas. I am going to do her little bird challenge.

And her Daisy-Do BOM. This is the thread and fabric I have chosen.
I have finally starting reading Twilight and must admit to being hooked so reading now instead of sewing!!
