I think my Mega Pinnie looked fab in this month's Today's Quilter, I was thrilled to see it all laid out so professionally.
I have been following the BOM in the same magazine, it's designed by Jen Kingwell and I'm thoroughly enjoying using up only scraps to make the blocks - this month there were eight blocks to make and I think a full quilt of these would be super especially if a bit more attention was given to colour value and placement.
and altogether, in no particular order, this month's blocks.
Because I have made these so scrappy, I am going to finally make a link to Nicky & Leanne's Scraptastic Tuesday, I think I am just going to make the deadline for this month.
Progress is also being made on the Siblings Together quilts (click the link for a bluepatch update) - all blocks made by ladies in my classes, I am joining the blocks. The pink and white one is done, the teal and yellow just needs the binding stitched down. These photos were taken before I got to the final stages.
and this is the back
I have also managed a little personal sewing too - my Bee buddies in Bee a Brit Stingy are embarking upon a new project for 2016 - we have each to start off by making a very large hexagon, with 16" sides. Mine is going to have a large Georgetown Circle in the middle of my hexie and I have managed to complete half of the circle so far - I was a bit nervous joining the arcs but took it slowly and am well chuffed. I decided to stay stitch the outer and inner edges before joining and I think it helped.
Lastly, many of you know I retail Aurifil, in quite a small way, mainly for my classes. I thought I might reach out to others who might be interested in buying this super thread. So I have have started listing small bundles on Instagram - see button on my sidebar to have a look if you are interested. My current bundles, available to UK buyers only are -
Have a great week.x
