quick WIP

I'm in the flow right now, sewing and quilting whenever I get the chance... so a quick update today.

Bee blocks:

These scrumptious ones, complete with my embroidered siggy block for Nicky



This eye catching block for Ange - I have to apologise though, she wanted a couple of white 'beams' and I accidently hurriedly sewed them together and made one big white bit!! I'm hoping she's ok with it?! 



Next up another cool paper pieced block for Janine... good summer holiday task for the kidlet, ripping the paper off the back!


colours didn't show up well - that is blue and pink!!

Finally a fun log cabin block for Lisa with some of my favourite scraps.


I've been busy making my improv log cabins too. I think I could do these forever but these will make a nice baby quilt so I'm going to piece them together and have fun looking for backing and binding fabrics!



**The Simplicity pattern giveaway is open until tomorrow**

*** A reminder that You've Lost That Loving Feeling starts this Saturday - so get gathering your fugly fabric and unwanted WIPS!***
