Today's bits

First up this morning I finished piecing the backing for my Sherbet Pips quilt.  I am planning to layer it tomorrow and maybe quilt it.  I will post a photo when it is done. 

Next I appliqued the flowers on my pink MWAH quilt, one being required to cover a small tear not discovered til the quilting was almost completed! 

Next I moved on to these......

I call this my mystery quilt as I am not sure how it is going to go together just yet.  I know that am going to team all these bright little squares with a solid (possibly) or at least something very dark but that is as far as I am going with the design process until I get them all ironed and counted so I can see what I have to work with.  These pieces and fabrics are leftover from another quilt my group did and I am turning the scraps into something suitable for a teenage boy in the Quilts for Keeps Program - at least I hope the end result will appeal to a teenage boy!  I guess we will have to wait and see...

The rest of the afternoon was spent cutting out aprons to send to Ireland for the Irish Charity Bazaar and then when I went out I found the postman had been. It is the yellow month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and these are the blocks that Celia sent me for our own personal little swap.  I love the bird stitchery and there are some cute fabrics in the blocks.
These are the blocks that I sent her - I always think yellow is such a cheery colour.
Well, I think that is about all for me for tonight.  Time to go fold laundry and maybe do a bit more crocheting while I wait to play taxi driver again for Fly Boy!

Happy stitching!


  1. Wow! You're one busy bee! Aren't you exhausted? That "mystery" quilt sure has a some pretty fabrics going in, and I really like those yellow blocks. I have not joined a block swap, yet. It's on my to-do-one-day list.
    Happy stitching back to ya!

  2. That sure is a big stack of squares! I agree, yellow is a happy color! Isn't it great to use up the leftovers! It's like 2 for the price of 1! Can't wait to see more of it!


  3. JanMaree, I begining to think you are an over achiever or that maybe Aussies have more than 24 hours in their days. Good work.
