June FNWF

Very excited to have finished this mini quilt top this week....

There are 920 pieces in the 20 x 20" piece...

Foundation paper piecing and I followed a pattern by Betsy Vinegard.  I used her colour choices as I liked them and could never work out others of my own.....

I love it.....


I finally did some baking... these are white chocolate, macademia nut and cranberry biscuits..... 


and a favourite of mine is date and pecan nut loaf.....



It's hard to believe it is already June..... and first Friday means cyber sewing with friends.... 

Thanks to Cheryll for hosting us....

I have been working patiently on this blackwork (and a little bit of blue sparkle) ..... there are 36 of these little 'sweets' all different.... I have to say I am finding this challenging especially following the intricate patterns .... so it takes me a very long time but I am enjoying losing my mind this way!!!



Today I am using a fine chalk pencil to draw up some quilting designs on my little piece..... can you tell I am a bit obsessed with it at the moment????


Righto, Gotto Go.... pinning needs to take place then I'll thread up my machine and start playing..... loads of in the ditch to do....

Hope you have a lovely weekend....

Your mini is totally STUNNING!! What a piece of art this is. Congratulations! Just getting it to this stage is quite a workout I'm sure. Good luck with the quilting. Lots of seam allowance there. I understand why you lose your mind in the blackwork. The patterns are very complex. Enjoy the goodies! (Look so good!) ;^)
