First Friday in February.....


This week I managed to complete the stitchery on my 5th block for Flowerville…

 The Main House (Flowerville is a Rosalie Dekker design)


I hope this week I will be able to make the Dresden plate for around the edge and finish the block.

I also sewed these 4 circles.... I have about 20 more to do... so nearing the end.... 


I have been pretty busy so haven't got to very much machine sewing... but I did do the third block in Jane's sampler.

I am making the blocks 3 1/2"


each new block has an extra piece to do... these are 1, 2 and 3 as you can see




Thanks Chez for having us for FNWF....

I started on the next Flowerville block... which is the Coffee House.  I started on the chain stitch, which goes pretty slowly.... plus there were people's to chat to.... and a shop to browse..... and cheesecake to eat.... 


This weekend I want to do some of my own quilting.... and have got out My Small World (Jen Kingwell pattern) as I want a large wallhanging for above the bed. 


I will be quilting quite heavily ….. but also in an informal style....

Righto, Gotto Go...… I'm going a quilting...…

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

The Coffee House! I want to live in the Coffee House because I can't live without my coffee. Beautiful stitches you made. Have a wonderful weekend too. ;^)

Wonderful block and love how your circles are coming along.
I do love the idea of circles and machine appliqué with them, will be a fun project and I have a nice collection of dot and circles for it.

Pretty little embroideries! Enjoy your quilting time......working on your own projects after doing Stuff for other people is very satisfying.

What pretty colors in My Small World! I'm looking forward to seeing what "heavily informal" quilting looks like :)

You are making terrific progress with the Flowerville blocks and the circles.
The sampler blocks are intriguing.
Lovely to see you quilting some of your own tops.

I love chain stitching, it's so pretty. I suppose you are right - it is slow going. Love the circles, that's going to be a pretty quilt. And I love your new project in the previous post - the triangles with the bird embroidered on the other half of the block. Very pretty.

Narelle said...

Love the thread colour you're using.
You made lots of progress xx

Janice said...

A productive day. How many blocks are in Jane's Sampler? I'm guessing there will be some very intricate blocks in the future.
