A couple of Wips

I haven't really been into blogging as of late, though sewing is still very much on-going. I've had two quilts on the go for the last few weeks (well one the last couple of months).

I have been working my way through a foundation pieced quilt and it has been a big learning curve, I've done a few foundation blocks before, but nothing like this and I have become very acquainted with my stitch ripper and on a couple of occasions I have had to just put it down and do something else, but I now have a finished top. The back is ongoing and will have three blocks on it, a Union Jack, an Australian flag and a cupcake, which will be on the top of the back upside down, so it can be folded over and viewed with the other blocks on the front.

This is the finished front and I have to say I am very pleased with it (and glad it's finished)

The below is what I was working on when I had to walk away and it's abut 80" square and I really like it, very girly and pretty fabrics. It just needs sandwiching, quilting and binding.

This one is a finish and is now hanging in the church, it's been finished about a month, but I didn't get around to photographing it.
I'm now helping the other two women in the sewing group to make a quilt each (from my scraps stash), which we'll raffle off for the church and a children's home that we support in Romania.


  1. Oh my goodness - those paper pieced blocks look FANTASTIC!! They must have taken you absolutely ages. I love them all!! I am working on Kristy's Lego Star Wars paper pieced blocks and I am so over them already! I love them when they are finished but I think they are going to drive me nuts!!

  2. Your WIPS are great! I especially like the girly piece. The church banner and animal quilt are incredible!

  3. I completely LOVE your pieced animal top :)
