After what feels like a lifetime of effort, I finally got the New York Beauty Mini done!
I used it for FMQ practise - lots of radial line, bubbles, snail-shells, and my trademark 'fiery curls'
Funny story: I broke the needle just as I was starting to edge this, and so I had to lever up the plate under the foot and needle. And found...quite a lot of lint.
Had a go at it with the good old vacuum... :)
Books And Blocks Bee
These are ridiculously late. But done and in the mail!
And I still have the last block to go! (January, I believe.) I also stuck a bit of Mendocino Mermaids in there as compensation for lateness. I hope they like Heather Ross!
Sewn into columns, but not fully together yet.
Looking pretty good, though, I think!
Sydney Modern Quilt Guild
You remember those hexies I've been doing for the last, oh, FOREVER?
Well, at the end of last week, we abrutply realised that the submission for the Sydney Quilt Show in June this year must be done by the end of this week. Cue panic. And several days of Sit 'N Sews to get most of the blocks done so we can lay it out and take a photo to give an indication of the design. It doesn't have to be finished just yet, they just want to see the design!
So we sat, and we sewed. And we sewed. And we sewed. And after two days sewing with Penny Poppleton and two other lovely ladies...we had this!
Lily And Will Baby Quilt
I have the binding fabric cut and sewn and ironed and ready to sew on...I just haven't done it yet!
To be done by Sunday.
Anyway, that's me. What about you? What have you been doing?
