New projects...

Well I have kept busy this week with a few new projects, some still in progress and one finished.

As you may remember I have been making hexagons for a cushion cover which is coming together very slowly.  I wanted two pillows for the bed which will go with my Birds & Bees Quilt, so I decided to use the same fabrics and create this simple square block.  I am going to quilt this before making the cushion so it has some texture and feels that bit stronger.

I got this beautiful bundle of Joel Dewberry's Notting Hill that I got Sew Love Fabrics which I have been itching to cut into.

I really love this collection.  Here are a few of my favourites.

The second project I started had me cutting into these beautiful fabrics.  I signed up for Amy Gibson's Craftsy BOM 2012.  Yes, just a little behind but I liked the blocks used and thought they'd be a good challenge.  The beauty of doing this a year late is that all the BOMs are posted and I can work through them at my own pace.

And the last project, which is the one I got completed, is this Metro Bag from Grand Revival Sewing Patterns.

I am linking to WIP Wednesday and Fabric Tuesday.

  1. I'm adoring the Notting Hill as well. I just got some in this week. Lovely projects. Thanks for stopping by WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!

  2. Pretty fabrics. I like your square block a lot!

  3. Hi Kristy. As soon as I seen your block on the Freshly Pieced blog I wondered if you are doing the 2012 BOM. I did mine last year and I just loved it. It was my first real project of doing things other than rag quilts and I learned a lot! I love your fabric collection too :)
