Pie in the Sky blocks

Sorry no Photos but I am reporting in to say that while I did not make a nearly insane block this week I did sew B17 into its row. I also have now nearly made all the blocks for the Queen size Pie in the sky quilt I talked about in September 23 post. Some are still in units and two thirds still need to be sashed but it is starting to take real shape. I am happy.

I am also just loving my new Bernina 820. She is purring like a pussy cat. I can even set my block up underneath the arm ready to sew. All that room is fantastic.

Cheers Lynne

Block 17 Nearly Insane

This block took me a while. Notice the Rooster and hen in the centre block.
Cyndi I just had to have a play with those gorgeous Trade Winds fabrics. Added to my challenge was getting all the colours in the right place :-)
Have a great Week all  Cheers Lynne

Doll Quilts



My Friend Nancy and I designed a dolls quilt for each other and made it into a little kit to share. The bird one is the one I made to share with her. The shape is different because it is the shape of an wertheim lid to a sewing machine.


This little quilt was a kit from BusyThimble made with the Charleston range. Of course the little Conversationals are my additions.


This is the gorgeous little kit that Nancy made up for me. She chose some of her favourite fabrics and of course that gorgeous apricot Sturbridge.


This little quilt was made on a Miniature sewing machine called a Little Worker or a Midget . It has a tine shuttle and I lost count how many times I had to fill it.! If you click on the link you will see the machine.

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

Also there are many other doll quilts that others have linked to so sit down with a cuppa and be inspired. Cheers Lynne
