Having a Play!

Yesterday I finished up some swap pressies. Apart from some drama with a zip (accompanied by quite a few 'rude' words), I am fairly pleased with what I have made. I would love to share but I know the recipients are regular readers so no show and tell just yet.

Today I felt like starting something new so I had a little play with some Denyse Schmidt fabrics I have been hoarding for a while. Most of them came from Spotlight except for some bits of Flea Market Fancy I purchased from the Fat Quarter Shop.


I cut a 5 inch strip from each fabric then cut them into charm squares. These are from lots of different ranges which I hope will give a scrappy but not too clashing look. 
 

I am using them to make my October Schnibble, Joy Luck. I wasn't feeling enthused about this months' choices, Hubble or Bounce which are both larger sized quilts so decided to just do my own thing. 
 

I managed to piece the 60 Chinese Coins blocks and hope to piece them into rows after work tomorrow.
