Whoops I'm late

Well better late than never, a quiet but busy week, a little sewing, Our guild had a sale day so I was trying to finish a few of the little zippered bags I make, and also tried a pattern for a little lunch sack come gift bag , they are quite cute and would make a nice gift with something in them.

IMG_3522 I also made another 2 or 3 sweet treats bags

IMG_3523 This one out of kaffe Fabric, still needs a button.!

Ive also been doing the binding on my Posh quilt, and I now have more Kaffe Fasset lights to make the Kaffe Quilt bigger.

Some of the other bags I forgot to take photos and now they have gone. I also did a couple of Jane blocks but no photos of them either ....

UFO Retreat.  I took my collection Of Kaffe Fasset fabrics and made a Turning Twenty with a Twist Quilt well the rows are done but I have decided to make it bigger so had to wait for some morelight coloured fabrics, they came today so now I can finish it.IMG_3462 These are some of the fabricsIMG_3468 The blocks before I cut themIMG_3469 The rows laid out on the floor, I have decided to add another row to make it wider.IMG_3509 Out of some of the scraps came this little Sweet Treats Bag.

Friday Flaunt.!

Well this week Iv'e been shopping, and stitching,  I made this little bag from a Moda Aviary sweet roll, Like a jelly roll but only 1.5 inch wide, I have enough for 3 more of these from the same roll.It's quite clever as the outside becomes the inside so it's all nice and neat, a nice makeup bag, or sewing kit, or... what ever you want.!IMG_3441 

Ive also spent a couple of days working on some challenge blocks for My Sewing Sister's group. We meet once a week and often have projects we all do, this one we were given a swatch of fabric and we had to use the red colour and as many of the other colours as we chose to do 10 blocks all of contrary wife, now we all get one from each other and have to have a quilt completed by December, It is amazing how different everyones blocks are.

IMG_3437 These are my blocks . Next week after I get the others back I'll show you a photo of them all.
