A Little Bit of Stitching

This Jacob's Ladder block is the third block for my Friends in Stitiching BOM. It was Leanne's turn to choose the block this month. (Aren't the months just zipping by ... nearly Easter!!) Once again I used Rouenneries fabrics by French General ... I love the scrappiness of it.



In between finishing swap gifts, I had a play with the lovely fabrics Lynda sent me for my birthday. I decided to use the Calico Spools block ... with a slight variation. (All the spools have the pink plaid at the centre instead of the plain pink ... I like a scrappy look.)


I've made 8 spool blocks. The ninth will be the centre block and feature stitchery of some sort! The fabric with the red spot was a purchase from Quilt Fabric Delights ... it looks very cute and girly as sashings.


Here's a peek at something else I've been doing. It started out as a swap gift but I now have other plans for it.!


This afternoon I'm off to the theatre ... nephews and niece, Jesse, Micah and Tali are performing in the Burnie Musical Society's production of Oliver. They are all urchins/pickpockets in Fagin's gang. I have been treated to many renditions over the summer so it will be good to see it all come together.

  15. Your fabric choices are always so uplifting, Christine. Everything you make with them is eye candy to be sure. I just love your version of the spool block that are appearing everywhere in blogland these days. And I can't wait for you to reveal your sneak peek because it too looks heavenly.
