Work(s) in progress

I thought I would give you all a quick update on some of the many projects that are in progress here.

First up - what does 89 English Paper pieced blocks look like?? A little something like this!
 I've been really enjoying watching this pile grow, especially as I've never hand sewn a whole quilt before, so there is a real sense of accomplishment with this one.  I'm also quite happy that this project hasn't gotten sidelined by other projects!!

So here is a little look at all the blocks laid out.  I needed to lay them all out so that I could figure out what I need to do for the remainng blocks.  I'm quite happy with how this is coming together, the colours are working quite well, and I only have about 15 blocks to go before I can start stitching them all together!  I'm really glad that I did lay them out, I've actually made one change to the positionings since this photo was taken, there are two blocks that are nearly identical quite close to each other... so I moved one!  Can you spot it??
My second update is on the placemats that have been in progress for a while.  They're all quilted, and late the other night I made 480 inches of binding (yes, that's right 480!!) and started sewing the bindings on.  I've done about half of them and then I'll have to stitch them to the back.  It's going to take me time but I'm getting there!


  1. those are AMAZING... wow.
    holy moly girl, I'm impressed. :)

  2. I love, love, love your Candied Hexagons quilt! You did such a marvelous job of choosing colors. Not an easy thing to do, as I can attest. I really botched it when I made mine. Now I have no interest in finishing it. Are you laying out your quilt according to the block layout in the magazine? Or are you making up your own layout?

    Did I see you and a t-shirt quilt on the Sydney SCQ blog, at the July get together at the Blue Gum?
