I think this is the correct term for this addiction. I tell you, once you get going you just can't stop. Here is Block 4 all done.
And a close up of the centre detail. Such fun.
I have also made some progress on Block 2 of Funky Feathers. I'm not quite sure why the pansy is bigger than the bird. But hey, this isn't reality right?
Now today I made a BIG mistake. I thought maybe, perhaps I could clean up my sewing room a bit - WRONG - too much stuff to do anything with really so I just made much more mess. Oh Dear. But I did find this old quilt.
Pretty isn't it? I made this top in 2000, can you believe it, when I spent the year in Sydney. I took a class with Brigitte Giblin, and used only little bits and pieces that I had with me (most of my stash had been left in Melbourne) and a few more pieces that I bought there. Needless to say it has been languishing in the cupboard since then, so time to get it quilted.
Some close ups of all the lovely blocks.
All the little blocks are hand pieced or appliqued. I put it together by machine. I thought it was so hard back then but it looks very simple to me now.
I was looking for some other old projects but couldn't find them - they must be here somewhere! Perhaps they have disintegrated! Might need to do some serious digging.
In the meantime, happy sewing or whatever else you might be doing.
