More Gossip....

It's about time I blogged about My progress with Anni Downes quilt "Gossip in the Garden". 
This months challenge was two appliquéd blocks (one tiny one!) and 15 periwinkle stars. The stars were a bit of a challenge for me. 
Each 4 inch block contains 12 pieces, so my first job was to cut out the 180 pieces needed for the blocks. 
These are my first 5 stars and I have to admit, they were fiddly! 
All 15 blocks complete! 
The larger appliquéd block. 
And the smaller one. 
Putting it together. 11 of the stars go around the very first block we made. The other 4 are for another section. 
This block will be used later....
And one of the Dresden blocks from last months challenge can be put together with these others. It's all coming together!!!! 
I have also finished my "Work in Progress" bag by Jodie from Ric Rac. I love it! Great size and stands up on its own. Only trouble is - all my Works in Progress won't fit in it!!!! 
A bit more progress on my Scandinavian Rose too! 
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Thank you so much for picking my card as one your winners from the teddies challenge, it is such an honour.
Thank you for all your hard work in making the challenge so successful, it's a shame that the challenge is ending but I can totally understand your reasons and wish you all the best.

What a busy girl! Any tips on doing the handles on the WIP bag, T? Not much gets to me, but these are really annoying me!

Vicki said...

What a busy little person you have been! Any tips on putting the bias on the WIP handles, T? Not much stumps me, but these have really annoyed me!
