Fiddling around.....


After being energised with ChooseDay sewing I continued to piece some blocks for My Small World...

This hill was a bit fiddly, I drew up a foundation pieced pattern but needleturned each curve onto each other.... not sure it gave the best result but it worked for me....

(this block measures 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" …. so lots of small pieces


… and here are all four hills together.... you can see they all are a bit fiddly and different... how clever designers are....


… of course I couldn't stop there……


TaDa… all my pieces are together now....  I didn't count them but you are welcome to....

My Small World is designed by Jen Kingwell ….  so clever and so much fun.... now to get it quilted.... hmmmm

Of course with a finish (sort of finish though not quilted) I needed some more machine sewing for ChooseDay….

playing around with some placement


Righto, Gotto Go.... curtain fell down this morning so Hubz needs some supervision!!!

Congratulations! I love your Small World quilt. I have to admit that at first I was skeptical about the design of this one but now, I love it. What size is the quilt? Small enough to decorate your new sewing room?
The new project looks very interesting. I'm intrigued. Enjoy! ;^)

Oh golly I love that hill block, it's like a New York Beauty block on steroids!!!! My most favorite block in the world - someday I'll make one. The Small World quilt is AMAZING. Love it so so much!

Small World is very cute......and very fiddly diddly! How big is it?

Wow, Fiona! I don’t stop by for a little bit and look at all you accomplish! Just amazing! I’ve long admired Jenn's Small World, but have never had the 'guts' to make it, so I’m very impressed! I love all her patterns! XO
