Miniatures from Miniatures

This year has offered a lot of fun stuff in quilting...
sometimes I have felt really overloaded;)
Now it seems that the same will continue on the next year;)
Oh my...

In January Cheryl is giving us instructions for a new sampler quilt,
the modell is from 1880's, stitched by Barbara B. Snyder.
Blocks are 5" x 5".
She has already made two blocks
and today I was in the world of miniatures...

Block 1
I'm gonna use mainly these fabrics from Julie Hendrickson's Miniatures for Windham Fabrics.
Those 4-patches are 1"x1"... IIIK!!!

I think I would have never ever manage to sew them without training with the small pieces in Gardener's Journal!

And today was also THEday
when we sewed Gardener's Journal blocks A,B,C,D,E,F and H together

Fenix wanted to show you his place at the door - personally;)

This was a HAPPY day,
You had it too!!!

Friday Night Sew in... turned into Hearty

I was out of my plan last night...

Saturday on my cutting board
there is more less finished blocks than I planned:(
ONLY 5 blocks for Butterchurn -quilt and 3 pink blocks for Remember Whoo Loves You -quilt:((

... but I sewed first part of X-mas Mystery, second is waiting...

AND after that
my Friday evening turned into

VERY, very HEARTY business!!!

My mother has 80 anniversary today
I made few hearts for the decoration.
Anyway it was nice to sew something, while listening Renee's concert.
Those rock- ballads were quite interesting...

Have a lovely Sunday!

Am I Stucked in Lilac?

It's funny
- earlier I haven't liked lilac fabrics -
but now almost every time, when I'm searching my boxes of stash I pick up some lilac or purple.

Oh, I must get rid of it...

Tadaa... no lilac, no purple...

Tomorrow is Friday Night Sew In
and I planned to play with these colours,
while listen a direct broadcast of Renee Fleming's concert.

Le Petite project in November is 'Butterchurn' by Sherri Falls of This & That. I didn't have time to purchase the pattern, so I improvise... My Churndash blocks are about 4,5"x4,5". And I use some Christmas prints.

Today a nice mailwoman brought me
two charm packs of Moda's Lily & Will range (sweet pastels from Bunny Hill Designs)
pattern of Remember Whoo Loves You -wallhanging (designed by Acorn Quilt & Gift Company).

Hopefully I have on Saturday something new to show...
until then
Have a nice sewing time;)

SBS BOW - L-10 Contrary Wife

PS. I finished all SSCS gifts and they are now ready to wrapping...

X-mas Mystery

It's starting to feel more and more mysterious on these days...
Merete Veian has revealed the first part of her traditional Jul Mysteriet at Quilt Design.
You'll find the Intro here.
The next three part she'll reveal on this weekend, starting on Friday.

In this year I'll try to be in from the beginning... so the strips of fabrics are cutted;)
Merete ask to choose golden-yellow, pink and white-beige fabrics,
but I didn't find matching colours... and...
There is three blocks coming and we can use them in pillows, a tablerunner, tablemats or else, I decided to cut these fabrics.

Why don't you join too?

Let's do it with the mysterious ways...

Have a especially fun week!

A Spooky Sneak Peek

After short coffeebreak
I returned to the sewing room and found very odd bogey on the floor.

Whoooo... is there?
Oh, it's you;)))

I have very little to show you... because of this time of the secrets...
But journey with Sylvia's Bridal Sampler has continued with two blocks.

B-2 Gulf Star

It's my 90th block, so there is only 50 left;)

H-8 Pinwheel 1

I'm still struggling with those tiny cross-stitches,
hopefully I'll finish it tomorrow.
Then I must hurry with the next Gardener's Journal block. I haven't even traced the stitchings of it - yet. IIK!

Last weekend I sewed the last blocks for Euro Bee. I will show them later with all other blocks, which I have made since March. If you don't want to wait, you'll find photos of Euro Bee blocks here.

But now,
It's late...
and time to go to sleep...

hopefully I don't have nightmares;)
