What I am working on

These blocks are from Camilles' 25 half square triangle blocks. I am using batiks of course. The blocks are big, 16 inches and look fantastic. I am going to make 9 and sash them like Carrie of La Vie En Rosie.

A mini

I finished this mini while I was working full time. It is a Thimble Blossoms pattern, Mini Spools. I bought the PDF which was great as it meant instant pattern and instant sewing. I decided to simplify the spools by leaving out the 1 inch squares. I got the idea from the Bee in my Bonnet quilty fun Quilt along. Lori has a tutorial on her blog. It would have taken me quite a while to get those squares sewn to my satisfaction. My skill does not always meet my expectation. I would love to make the full sized spools without the short cut.

What do you think Gran?

This is the cushion front I am planning to make for my dad. I used a panel I won ages ago from Emma At Sampaguita Quilts. I have been waiting for the right thing to do with it. Well, what do you think Gran?
