W.I.P.

Almost finished my Mimi's Bloomers center block only have a few items left to sew down.  This is being hand appliqued using the 'freezer paper and starch" method. 



My Peony block for the "Forget Me Not" quilt is all fused down waiting for stitching.  I am going to use a small zigzag stitch using monopoly filament thread which should end up being almost invisible.



This one has been kicking around for quite some time.  This is block 5/9 for Witches in Stitches "Boo-tique".  This project got shelved while working on the hand stitching.






Prize 2 and 3 arrived today

I still can't believe that I have been so lucky the last few weeks.  Think it is 6 drawings that I won.

Prize 2 is some gorgeous repoduction fq's from This-n-That fabrics http://tnt512.blogspot.com/

Prize 3 is a lovely table topper from Quilterinmotion http://quilterinmotion.wordpress.com/

Again thank you very much

Well the last 2 weeks have been pretty lucky for me.

I have won several drawings in the last 2 weeks.  The first prize arrived today from http://lilypadquilting.blogspot.com/.  A set of really nice note cards designed byJacquelynne Steves of The Noble Wife.

What I got done this last week March 19 - 25

Was really busy and managed to get a lot accomplished.

First up Block 2 for Mimi's Bloomers


Then finished the 3D BoM  made 2 items with it.  Each of these blocks is actually 3 dimensional.  Was a lot of fun and in some cases very challenging to make.  I will eventually make another one minus the final block that was 17 layers thick in the middle.

This one I call 3D Adventures is ready to hand at the end of hallway.  No batting in this one I did the second one first hence leaving out the batting in this one.



This one I call "Drove Me Around the Bend".  This one has batting in it and in some places it would actually get stuck under the presser foot of the machine as it was so thick.  Not sure what I am going to do with this one yet so will be packed away for awhile.  Hubbie went and hid my scissors on me at one point I was so frustrated putting this one together.

What I have manage to get finished lately

Taking into account that I am still working on the 4 largish projects and also that I have been basically sick in bed for the last week and half I haven't been posting much.

I did manage to get Block one for Mimi's Bloomers done.


Also did get the Angel Connection done for March and April.




Should be finished the 3d wall hanging(s) and have a photo for you next week.

Hope everyone is in good health and is managing to avoid the nasty virus' going around.  Also hope that none of my readers got caught in those tornadoes recently.
