This weeks blocks.....


At the weekend Hubz and I had a little walk at a nearby park.... the clouds were all over ... but not bringing any rain unfortunately.....


This week's Dutch Treat block is a sail boat...


.... and 6 new blocks towards the Anthology quilt.....


.. and one towards Living the Dream quilt with the No Fuss Stitchalong....


My 10 minutes a day machine sewing continues ... sometimes it is spent preparing but now I have my 9 patch blocks done.....


... the next task is to make green and white squares to go around the border .... then I can start sewing the rows together.... it's getting there....


It's still hot here and I am struggling to quilt for very long .... so short bursts and then something to cool down... like doing a blog post in front of the air conditioner!

Righto, Gotto Go....  I can go back and do a little more now....

Beautiful sewing! I do like that pink and white striped embroidery block so much.

Great progress! I am trying to prep for quilting in the winter, eg making backings. I have one ready to quilt, but too hot for me!

Love the boat block. Your teacup/teapot quilt looks beautiful. This heat is terrible. I'd hoped to put the binding on yesterday but just didn't have the energy.

DT block is wonderful! Love your teacups......you are making the most of your 10 minutes! The heat does sap your energy....Anthology is looking great too.

Still feel amazed when I see your Dutch treat blocks!
Love the progress on your teacups, that is looking so beautiful!
Hope you keep cool, we are heading into some hot weather down here too.
Not looking forward to it at all!

Lovely blocks Fiona 😊

The sailboat is an interesting departure from the rest of the Dutch Treat blocks. Most of the rest of them are more abstract and geometric. The Dutch build beautiful boats, that's for sure! Hope you can stay cool. Sounds like there needs to be an air conditioner in the most important place in your home: the sewing room! :)

Raewyn said...

The sailboat is a cute block - almost abstract! And nice to see your progress on your other projects too, proof that you can just chip away at things and voila! they get done!

Allie-oops Designs said...

Love that sailboat!! Your 9 patches look great - really like the color with the stitched blocks. Stay cool!!!

I think you are way over 10 minutes sewing a day..... but I love the way you count time... I also got some sewing done today but it was a dress... along with the backing for Robbie's quilt...

Wendy said...

lovely blocks! You are the most prolific quilter I've ever come across, you just whip quilts up so quick!

Maria said...

You are doing really well working on all your blocks.
The teapots look good with the nine patches..
Hope it cools down for you soon.

Anthea said...
