Quilt Group Mini Exhibition

Yesterday we had a mini exhibition at my quilt group, Shirley Quilters, & part of the exhibition was all the completed Block Of the Month quilts thats we'd been working on since January. I literally finished the binding on mine at around 22.15 Monday evening. So here it is, finally, my completed BOM quilt. I also went around & took photos of the other BOM quilts so you can see what other people achieved with the same blocks.

Hope you enjoyed seeing the quilts :)

Bloggers BOM Block #2

Woohoo... I'm on a roll :)

Here's my 2nd block from the quilt-a-long. I thought it looked a bit messy to start with, that was until I'd sewn them all together & now I love the result. Only down side now is having to wait until 25th for the next block to be released.

Happy stitching :)

Bloggers BOM Block #1

I've finally finished my first BOM for the Bloggers Block Of the Month.

It took me a while to decide on my fabrics & I've had a bundle of half metres of Kate Spains Central Park in my fabric stash for some time & i've been saving it up for the right project. I'm not sure if this is the right project but then the fabric is sooooooo lovely that I'm not sure the right project would ever come along so I had to get over it & make the cut, after all I can't keep all the fabric I buy forever..... can I???

I made a block & then made another 3 to go with it, thus making a larger block. I love it... really love it, hope you do to.

My friend Franney is also taking part in this BOM & to see her version of the block you can visit her blog & see it here.

The fabrics for block #2 are almost all cut & hopefully this monday I'll be sewing it up :)

A Lizzie Kate Completion

I was going to blog about a quilting BOM that I've just started but I realised that my last couple of posts have been about quilting & so far I haven't shared with you my finished Lizzie Kate so here it is.

I think you'll agree that it's been expertly finished & the fabrics really set off the design. If you haven't come across her yet & you have some stitching to be "finished" up then I strongly recommend you get in touch with KarenV over at My Favourite Things. She's pretty amazing at what she does :)

Happy stitching :)
