Bits and pieces of what I’ve been working on . . .

katys block

I got another paper pieced snowflake done for my Quilt Around the World Christmas swap.  Katy requested that all her blocks be made with red and white only.  I love the results!!  I’ve made 9 so far . . . I think!

I joined the Brown Bag Swap via Stash Manicure.  The fabrics pictured are the fabrics I’m sending to my partner, Michele.


We were to send FQ’s totaling 2 yds from our stash that no longer ‘speak’ to us.  Since I did a huge overhaul of my stash last year, I didn’t have many that I didn’t love so I had to throw in fabrics I still really like.  I’m excited to see what Michele makes with them!

Here are the fabrics Michele sent to me.


At work a couple of days ago a book came in with a project that is outside of my box that I think I’ll make with these FQ’s.

Another swap block done for my Vintage Sheet Freedom Bee.  This one is for Jessica.

And this one is for Kylie

I have a few more I need to make SOON!!

At Harriet’s we sell these darling kits to make two paper pieced blocks. 
There are tons of samples made, but not all are made up so I took home a pack and stitched up these two leaves. 

They finish anywhere from 3 1/2” square to 5” square with out borders.  One could enlarge the foundation, of course, to make a bigger block.
Next on my list is the birthday pack which has a present and a slice of cake and an animal pack that has a monkey and a giraffe.

I’ve almost got all the bindings done on the mini quilts I’m taking to Argentina!!  These were so fun to make – I’ll do a post on them later.

I hope when you get my QATW blocks you will make me a star block. I have enjoyed seeing them as they have come to my house.
those little fall postcards are very pretty.
