Here is what I got up to in October!
1. Doorstop, 2. Pillow Fight Cushion - one side! 3. Small Scandinavian Woven heart, 4. Applique mushrooms, 5. Large Scandinavian Woven heart, 6. Puffy Pouch, 7. Fabric Basket, 8. Spools blocks, 9. Applique Robins.
A lot of skill building went on this month - prevaricating ( but I was already really good at that), designing for my swaps:
- a cushion (see mosaic 2) for the Brit Quilt Pillow Fight - half done!
- a Modern Christmas Tablerunner - in Susan's swap - the top is complete!
and following Ayumi's gorgeous Puffy Pouch tutorial (mosaic 6) for the Scrappy Fabric Swap with Kat
I also designed my very own block - the Scandinavian Woven Heart (mosaic 3 & 5), I made spool blocks (mosaic 8) and drafted blocks on two workshops I attended and every Friday is Free Motion Quilting Friday with Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting. This is my latest effort in FMQ...
I would like to have a go at paper piecing next - although I am not really a neat and tidy sort of person ( you may already have guessed this!). I have had a little go at it but no serious attempt as yet to master it - it is on my hit list of things to do so any tips on books, blogs etc as a starting point for a beginner would be gratefully received!
