Update on stiching....


I did get my set of 12 One Block Wednesday blocks done....


Silly me forgot to take the pictures I had taken of the set up for my flannel postcards quilt so I couldn't sew that....  

So I carried on with the little blocks ……


I did get all the 36 little dresden plates made and sewn together... now it needs hand applique to the background and the centre stitchery sewn in.... 


Another mouse is finished - she looks annoyed - I think her Hubz tried to use her scissors for gardening work.... 


I am still slowly catching up on Blockheads blocks.... and got this 6" one done 


and this 12 x 6" one done.... 


The quilt top is made in 4 large pieces made up of the different blocks.. there are still quite a few gaps but I did get this quarter together (I changed a little from the given setting just to separates some of my colours)  That is 42 x 36" already.... will be quite a big quilt ….. perhaps borders and 4 lap quilts....



I am trying to set out the others so I can be a little more selective about the colours in the last blocks of them all....

Just need more time for playing with them....

Righto, Gotto Go.... see if I can find some of that time I'm looking for.....

Strongest predictions we have had for a long time for some rain... so here's hoping

Such a lot to show and you are making excellent progress with the OBW blocks. The blockhead project looks like lots of fun but I will not be tempted.
Hope that rain arrived.

I love your little mouse. If it was me, I would add some whiskers on the other side of that nose, for balance, but that's just me. Blockheads is coming along just gorgeous. It will be a huge quilt if you have 3/4 to add. Enjoy! ;^)

Gee, the colours in your Blockheads quilt are working well together. Your other projects are looking good too.

I know you are doing red white and blue with the blocks, but they also look great just in a single colour way. So many options.
Love the dresdens coming together and the next cute mouse.
Well done with all the blocks.
