I have all my Noah and Matilda blocks sewn together! I opted with this layout because I want to hand quilt it. The original has the blocks on point with lots of blank blocks in between.
I still have the borders to make. I (hopefully!) have all the grapes made and I have made a start on the flowers and leaves.
Here are a few of my favourite blocks...
I have kept up with CCCQ, so here is the penultimate block!!
Block 32 Alice Carlile.
I have started back stitching Mountellick from last year's Quiltmania mystery BOM. I am working on part 2, the first border around the centre medallion.
I am using BOM fabrics from Threadbear.
I have put together some hexies using Cotton & Steel fabrics.
These are for the top of a small bag.
Earlier this week I visited a new shop here in Melbourne. Cutting Cloth has been open only a few days and is run by Kellie of Don't Look Now. The shop is set out beautifully.
I came home with a lovely piece of Cotton & Steel lawn, some fat quarters of Alison Glass fabric and the perfect piece of fabric for my Joseph's Coat quilt that I started on line with Kellie several years ago! The top has been finished for ages. I have just been trying to find the prefect backing fabric.
Today I put the last stitch in the binding of small quilt.
More photos when the quilt has been gifted.
