February Challenge

Happy to have Deana’s #2 Chookshed Challenge. complete. They are last year’s RSC blocks. 

I had just enough of the stripy fabric for the binding..

Wonder what number Deana will draw for March.
How did you go with your Number 2???

Must away and take in the washing.

Happy stitching 🧡

#2 Chookshed Challenge and LaLa block

This  week I’ve been working on my #2 Chookshed Challenge , some of last years RSC blocks

And in the evenings I sit and stitch another La Passacaglia block while watching “Survivor “ 

Great to have another block finished.
Next one cut and ready to glue the EPP papers.

Must away and get that done πŸ‘‹

Happy Stitching 🧡

FNSI for February

Third Friday of the month again and time to sign up for FNSI with Wendy and friends….after not having internet for a few days I could finally download the next Laundry Basket Birthday blocks.

The blocks have many tiny pieces and Block 6 had the smallest flying geese.

Block 7 

then onto Aussie Hero Blocks..

After taking this photo I realised both blocks were wrong . Can you see what??

Before it was time to go to bed I had time to audition the fabrics for the next La Passacaglia block.

Thank you Wendy for another FNSI.

Must away now and cut the EPP blocks ready to stitch.

Happy Stitching 🧡

FnwFs X 2

As Cheryll has organised another FnwFs and I had driven  home from the city in very hot weather ( 42 deg cel to 47deg cel outside) thank goodness for air con. I was really tired when I got home so only got some hexies glued before going to bed.

Today after my beautiful morning dip I closed up the house turned on the air con and made the red dragon for RSC.

Now I want to find some fabrics to make my 6th block for the Laundry Basket Birthday Quilt.

Must away, happy stitching 🧡 

Hugs Maria 🩷

Plenty to play with.

There’s plenty of different projects for me to work on this month.

No 2 is the Chookshed challenge number for February run by Deana…. I checked my list and it’s last years Angela’s RSC blocks,

I’ll find a sashing and hope the blocks will make a nice baby quilt. This months colour for RSC is RED so it’s a red dragon and log cabin block.

Next is the fifth Birthday block from Laundry Basket. Here are blocks 1,2,3 and 4

These blocks are 6 1/2” and a block will be added each week. 

And last but not least my Aussie Hero Blocks. Black and whites for this month.

Must away now and search through my stash .

Happy stitching 🧡
