What I have been up to lately.........

I have nearly finished the violet quilt, half of the binding is sewn down so not much to go. I had it on the machine just before Christmas and it only came off a few days's hard to get motivated on the 35+ degree days plus I think it was the feather motifs I think I am feather motifed out after all the ones on Lisa's quilt. I sewed Coco's quilt in between quilting this, it gave me a break especially as the cotton kept breaking and breaking and breaking.....!!!!!! I had enough bits and pieces left to make the pieced backing. I hope my Aunty likes it.

Your SBS blocks looks great, Bernadette! I love the soft and romantic colours you are using! This will be a great quilt! Have lots and lots of fun with the 115 blocks you have left - I'm sure you'll have as much fun with yours as I had with mine :o)

Have a lovely weekend!

I love the violet quilt. I have a bundle of the materials and must get to make it up.

You are need to go to my blog to find the rules.

Oh dear I found the crate with all those violet fabrics.
This does suggest either I make a note to say where it is
make it up into a quilt top.

Maybe I will think about it.

Hi "Bundy" ... lol
(I kind of miss those icq chats sometimes) ... yes I still pop in here and read your blog every now and then ... but this time I popped in to tell you I have tagged you! ... but it seems Glenice has beaten me to it!
(I was going to tag her too, but someone already did that the other day) ... I wonder if being tagged twice means you really have to carry it on and do the stuff?! LOL
(it's ok - I won't be upset if you don't - after all I was tagged 3 weeks ago and it took me this long to do anything about it!)
Details/rules are at
