blooming


It's been a productive week and I'm happy I managed to sew anything with the crazy kids around!

I finished this Bee A Brit Stingy row for Nicky. The blocks are Castle Walls by John Q. Adams from the book Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters:


I switched out the arrangement of grey / white squares so the row would have more movement, which Nicky requested.

Also managed to finish two more hand pieced flower blocks for my green tea and sweet beans quilt:


I adore that little Cocoland cat!

The next block is clamshells, which I have never done before. I'm going to do needle turn appliqué because I'm feeling brave. Here's my fabric pull for the clamshells:


Wish me luck!

  3. You want need any luck with the clamshells but if you want an incredible tutorial, Mary @ Molly Flanders has one on her blog! I'd never done them before when I was doing my "Small Town" quilt but really enjoyed the experience after following her method! I hope the crazy kids enjoyed the ice cream sundaes?

  9. Lovely bee blocks and cute flowers too. I messed up the last row of my clam shells as I forgot that the tail bits still show!
