Wedge blocks

I've unpicked my unfortunate wedge blocks that didn't work in strips. @traceyquilts suggested putting the wedges in a circle. What do you think. Have enough for loads of these. Thinking I'll appliqué onto a linen-coloured full cloth and quilt to tie it all in.

Quilting the baby quilt

Had to stop quilting this morning to take young Mr Forgetful to his figure skating lesson at Phillip. Only to realise after 15 minutes waiting for the coach that Mr 13 had the day mixed up.

What I love about this block - I can make the centre strip long or short to fit anything from peace to kindness.

#xplusalong block 4 Happiness!

Look what my husband ordered for me and left in my pillow. He's working through the men's version of this.

January's paper pieced star

Here's my practice block in the paper pieced stars from @dontcallmebetsy I always use patterned fabric so I'm getting used to these plains.

Here's a better shot of my #finishit2013 decided on good boxy binding to match the block and the cityscape quilting.

Zooming ahead with #finishit2013 number 3. This is a pattern from @redpepperquilts I noticed on my quilt's label that it proudly says "finished in September 2010". It's now January 2013 - that's how long it's been waiting for a finish!

Binding the quilt

Kids are cooking dinner, feet are up, air con on and binding the quilt. Bliss!

Binding my pink and green girlie quilt.

My eyes snapped open at 5 this morning and now I'm up sewing the binding on my pink and green girlie quilt.

Second in my #finishit2013 on Instagram (I'm @scrappyquilts) I'm about to finally add the binding to this quilt. It has 3D petals and its been quilted with big letter 'E's for Elizabeth.

My newest quilt will go with my newest cushion. All pink and lime green. My boys still love to snuggle with a quilt when they watch tv so it should be well used.

Pile of 5 inch scrappy squares

I had a rush of blood yesterday (and just back from two weeks away from my machine) and converted this pile of scrappy squares to a quilted strip ready to make a cushion.
