Quilt top finished, Noah and Matilda and more.....

I recently finished this quilt top for my Grandson. It will be for his cot, but big enough so that it can be tucked in at the sides and end. I have chosen a backing fabric and will be basting this weekend.

I am up to date with my Noah and Matilda blocks!!!! Yay!

This is the grape block from last month with some embroidery.

And this month's 4 blocks completed.

I made a couple of modifications to the top right block. Instead of appliqueing tiny yellow circles I embroidered some french knots. The stems for 4 of the hearts are chain stitch rather than a narrow fabric stem.

Some wonderful fabrics have come in the post. You may remember I won a giveaway on Lynne's blog earlier this year. The first bundle of Cotton + Steel fat quarters arrived from Pink Castle fabrics' Cotton + Steel Club.

Earlier I  prepurchased a fat quarter bundle of all the Cotton + Steel basics. The wait was worth it!!

I have lots of ideas to use these!!!  Anyone know where I can find a few extra sewing hours??? Lol

On the hand piecing front I have completed the second section of my lone star quilt.

This is going to be a big quilt!!!!

Spring is in the air here in Melbourne. Its another delightful, sunny day. Hope it is a great day where ever in the world you are. :)
