Nearly Insane and Looking Good :-)

Well I have put a bit more together. Have not sewn the row on as I still have the other 2 blocks to make. Have chosen fabrics for B28 and started it. That was a hard one to chhose the colour for. Usually I choose without using any of the other blocks as  an influence but I thought that I would like a strong block for 28 so stay tune.
My photos can be enlarged for close ups.
It is a long weekend here and we are enjoying a little bit of sun. little bit of rain and a little bit of sewing. :-)
Enjoy Cheers Lynne

Nearly Insane Block 34

Block is finished :-) I am happy One more block in this row before I am forced to tackle B22. The one I have been avoiding forever! One of my most favourite fabrics is the Sturbridge Apricot. Wish they made more repro apricots. I have less than a F8 left of this one and lets just say I will be very sad when it is gone.
Gorgeous Spring day here and it is going to be even better tomorrow. Happy Sewing All                 Cheers Lynne

Nearly Insane Block 34

I have unearthed my Nearly Insane and  as I am now putting the rows together and need to fill in gaps Block 34 is next on the list. As we have had some glorious Spring days I decided that the centre needs to be a buzzy bee. This is a fairly simple block so I have no excuse not to finish it!
Here are some of the Pie in the Sky Blocks pieced with their sashing as I go along. Decided to stitch them together in units of 4. I probably have 1/3 of the blocks made for a Queen Size quilt and plan on using the pieces as leaders and enders as I progress to the next quilt for the week. Must confess I just so loved making these blocks that the intention of rotating quilts once a week stretch to 3 weeks on this one!  I do have lots of fabrics cut so I can work on this side by side with Rowan’s Quilt. Hopefully will have pictures to take of that one soon. The quilt will have a totally different flavour as the two brothers are so totally different.

Little Quilt

Photo will enlarge for closeup to see all the conversationals.
This is my 12 days of Christmas quilt. I actually made two. One for me and one for a friend. She has hers and I was dragging my heels finishing off mine. Except for the borders hers is the same as mine. I just did not have enough fabric to make the same borders too. There are a few conversationals in there. Sandcastles and shells to signify where I live. Little birds cause I love bird fabric Bees and a bee hive, Roses because I love them and my friend Nancys favourite colour is blue so lots of that and her favourite fabric the apricot Sturbridge in the nine patch. That is now becoming a precious fabric as there is very little left.

Have a look at the gorgeous quilt that Taryn is giving away. It s the most gorgeous Dolls Quilt. I love it. I would be proud to be an owner of this little cutie :-)

Have a Great Week All  Cheers Lynne

Morris Meadows

Morris-Meadows3 Morris-Meadows1 Morris-Meadows2

Well the top is finished. I had not done machine buttonhole for about 5 years and discovered that it is like riding a bike – something that you never forget. I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt. The buttonhole is  very fine and I used matching cotton threads. I am waiting on delivery of the backing fabric to machine quilt. The sashings do not match as I thought that the fabric was so busy that it did not really matter.

Currently I am working on Pie in the Sky a Kim Diehl Quilt. No 2 son needs a new quilt for his bed. The pattern is a star in a shoofly and is fun to make. When I have made a few more I will take some photos. I also need to make a quilt for No 1 son. Have the fabric and am making a combination pattern. A bit from here and a bit from there. Not started yet but I am going to try doing a bit of project a week with every week a different one. Could come unstuck but it is worth a try. I have not given up on the Nearly Insane and that is one of the weekly projects.

Stay Tune  Cheers Lynne
