I have been super-dooper pre-occupied of late and, though that has had a negative effect on my blogging, the opposite can be said about my sewing.
Here's a quick overview of some of the things I've been working on of late -
Toffee Shards Quilt
I finished this quilt top weeks ago in preparation to link up to Le Challenge on July 15... but then I forgot. Doh!
Last month's theme was TOFFEE so I took my inspiration from images of toffee shards - hence the name.
I've since unpicked the quilting I started (stop groaning Mum), with the need to re-baste after my rather poor job initially. I will get this one finished - and soon - to gift to a darling baby boy. Watch this space.
Churn Dash Blocks
For July, Rachel requested that all of us in the Care circle of do.good.stitches, make scrappy Churn Dash blocks. I went a little crazy and whipped up three.
Please excuse the dodgy IG pics. I bundled these babies up before realising I hadn't taken "proper" photos.
I've been planning to piece this bad dude ever since I saw Kristy's version, made from her free pattern (available here). Oh yes, you read that correctly. Free.
So... the pattern is printed and the fabrics have been pulled. It will be interesting to see how long this takes me (to even start). ;)
Bear Paw Quilt
I've gone Bear Paw crazy and have now completed 23 blocks out of 25. Whoop!
the final two reds are proving difficult as I hunt for the perfect
shades, with the probably ridiculous hope of some not-too-pink
tone-on-tone fabrics. The search continues.
Of course, the other projects on my FAL list for this quarter have also been playing quite heavily on my mind. I may just have to get a move on with those soon. That donkey will not quilt itself! ;)
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Stop by and say hello to the gang.
