Pretty Clamshells

Do you remember this quilt

I love it and the bigger one I have made (still only a top though).

Well I am teaching this quilt later this month (august) at The Patchwork Angel.  This quilt can be made any size you like, I have worked out the maths for five (5) different sizes in the requirements list.

So, there are still spaces available in this class, so if you are free on Saturday 25th August,  call the girls at The Patchwork Angel and book a place, I would love to see you there....

Check out the full class list for the shop HERE

Hello everyone

I am back on track after nothing done last week, bloody flu!

BOM Rehab

Another week another block finished, almost.

This is the second applique block for the Mystery quilt .  It does need to have some leave attached, but as soon as this is posted I am off to bed.  It seems I have picked up an ugly winter bug and just can not sew anymore tonight.

I did get the case of the disappearing leaf sorted but now another one looks like it is about to disappear.  Here they are together, I do like how they are looking.  Two more pieced (by machine) to be done and I will be up to date with this quilt, until the beginning of August, when I get the next blocks.

Check out all the other BOM rehab girls at Sintas blog, Pink Pincushion

See you on the other side of this bug.

Snapshot Marilyn

Finished the binding on Flurry.
Now I can play with these fabrics. I'm cutting diamonds so this quilt may get called Marilyn Monroe.

Snapshot Flurry

First time stitching the binding all by machine. Front and Back. Going very quickly

BOM Rehab

Welcome to another week, this year is going way to fast...

This week I finished one of the blocks for the Mystery quilt from Precious Times quilt shop.  This is one of the applique blocks from the first month. Only 3 more to do.  I was piecing the hexagons for one of the other blocks while watching the racing in Warwick.

I can see now I have to replace one of the leaves, it is not showing up at all on the background.

I am linking with Sinta at Pink Pincushion and the rest of the girls in BOM Rehab. Have a look at all they have done.

Til later

"Snapshot" Warwick day 2

Start of racing and more stitching for me in between heats. Cold but not as windy as yesterday.

"Snapshot" Warwick

We are kart racing in Warwick this weekend. Lovely old town settled sometime in the 1800's late. The sun is shining and is so warm,but step out in the blustery south westerly wind and you freeze your a**e off. Even the locals think it cold
