Welcome March! The first month of spring for many... For us in the tropics - we are still having hot and humid days and the cyclone season is not over....
I've been busy over the last couple of weeks - since my previous blog post. I've not done anything to the log cabin quilt... The plan is a 'flying geese' border all around it. I prefer to do it paper-piecing - print it from EQ7 - but I don't have any printer right now. My beloved HP is dead... after almost 10 years working, so what to expect?! :(
I'm in for a scrappy year and I have some finishes where I have used up bits and pieces.
8 coasters in green / hunter green with 'gold metallic' butterflies
2 coasters - Easter eggs
3 coasters - cherries
... and of course, I can't avoid making some mug rugs...
Set of 2 mug rugs where I have used fabric scraps from the 'Spring Spectacular' line
Another set of 2 mug rugs from the same fabric line as above
Set of 2 Easter egg mug rugs
These mug rugs and coasters are listed in my Etsy shop.
It's not often I enter giveaways, but back in January I entered a giveaway at this blog - and won! :)
It's a Riley Blake charm pack 'Twice as Nice' and a Quilter's Calculator from AQS.
Charmaine - thank you so much! Love it all and I can't wait to make something out of the charm pack! :)
Check out Charmaine's blog and have a look at her gorgeous scrap quilts!
If you are are follower of my blog, you may remember I (finally) started working on the PSQ back in January. At that time I had 7 blocks - 36 charms in one block - 252 squares. At that time I got sidetracked - I get sidetracked all the time - lol - and it took some weeks before I got into it again. Over the last couple of weeks I made 6 blocks - 216 squares.
One block was made earlier (don't remember when), altogether I have 14 blocks - 504 squares - it's growing! :)
Don't you love how it looks? I do! :) And I love these charms are coming from different countries on the globe! What a travel they have had.... before landing on this little island in the middle of nowhere - lol!
I have several WIP's right now and here is one of them.
A piece of beautiful (big print) Easter lilies. It's going to be a wall hanging. The idea is to add a 'flying geese' border all around it (yes, this one too!), but I don't have enough 'hunter green' fabric. You all know I'm not going to buy fabrics 'just for fun' this year, but I am allowed when there's fabric I need to finish a project. 'Hunter green' is on its way from the US! :)
I have a few other WIP's, but I think this post is long enough as it is... I hope to finish 3 of the WIP's within a couple of days.
