RSC March

 Just scraping in for this months rainbow scrap challenge brought to you by the colour purple.


This week Reproquiltlover asked about the colour brown. As i don't have brown quilts my tiny nine patches included brown blocks as a nod to using the colour brown in quilts.

#4 Chookshed Stitchers Challenge.

 At the start of March i had this pile of blocks. I couldn't get my head around how to turn all these differing block sizes into a quilt so the decision was made to turn them into other things i'd use.

and now i have a cushion cover
a runner
i thought this little block looked like baubles so i added some loops to the top of the blocks & made a Christmas hanging.

this block into a project holder

the mug block into a mug rug
the remaining 5 larger blocks into tablemats as the J block & the cat blocks were separate blocks.
These blocks are what is left. I'm thinking another runner. 

Sadly not much of a dent was made in the B & C stash making these things up. :)

Now to wait & see what number comes up for April

9 patches

 Up to week 10 in the tiny 9 patch challenge. There is 100 blocks of each size. I've surprised myself that i'm still making them. :)


Possibly 20 or more years ago i was given a different blood lily to the one i had but i think it has only flowered once in all those years so imagine my surprise when out watering one day to discover a flower. I was waiting for it to open properly to take a photo but grubs got to it. :(
I turfed that grub off & hoped it would open more but when i went back a day of so later another grub had found the flower.

National Quilting Day

 Yesterday was National Quilting Day & it was spent on Zoom chatting with lovely ladies from all over the world. Special thanks to Chooky for hosting us again. It is always a lovely time chatting with these ladies & seeing what they are making.

I spent the time making up 1/2" hexie diamonds. I managed to get 13 done.

FNwF March

 Yesterday was a binding day for me. 3 had been recently done by the quilting fairy & 2 that had been quilted last year that i had just been to lazy to do. :) As i bound each one i place them on my chair but when i went to get them to take a photograph they had been claimed.

I guess they do make a comfy bed. :). After turfing her off i took a photo of the stack.

All ready for a marathon of hand sewing. 1 was completed last night
A Holly Jolly Christmas by Gail Pan Designs.

Thanks to Cheryll for hosting us. Pop over here to see who joined in.

Chookshed Stitchers Challenge for March

 When i saw a post from Deana's blog pop up i took a quick peek to see if it was a challenge number for March & sure enough it was. A quick check on my list to see what number 4 was & darn i hoped that would come up later down the track oh well now to find the thing. First box i looked in. :)

Here is my number 4

I was in a swap on Instagram back in 2014 making blocks using Bonnie & Camille fabrics. The blocks are in all different sizes. The plan was to make a big quilt by filling in with sashings ect but taking a look today i may just make a few small quilts. I'll see when i lay them all out properly.

Happy Stitching,
