Catching up with the bees

The Around the World Quilting bee is drawing to a close. This is the last block that I needed to make, so Tanya’s quilt is winging its way to Australia ready for her to make up. I think my quilt still has a way to go, so I will just have to wait to see what all my blocks look like together.

Below is the blocks for Tacha as part of Bee Europa. I liked these blocks, they were time consuming because there was a lot of ironing, but apart from that I think they look quite effective.

Finally Aprils blocks for Bee Europa for Muriel. I loved these blocks from the simplicity of the wonky log cabin block pattern to all the gorgeous fabrics. Brilliant.

Comfy Cushion and other things

I have had this gorgeous Darla fabric for a while and decided I would make some cushions from it. Well cushionS is not exactly where we are at, but cushioN, singular, is.

I followed the pattern here and although I hate gathering , I think it looks nice on my garden bench. It would look nicer with some company, but I have not found the time to make another one. Maybe next week.

I also had chance to make another couple of blocks for the Around the World Quilting Bee, I hope the ladies they belong to like them.
