Some sewing!

Have had some time to sew this week - yeah!   First up, have sewn all the 192 4-patch 3.5" blocks for Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mystery - Easy Street (still need to press about half!).  No, it's not a monochrome photo, the fabrics are greys and white with black prints, and I do like them.  Please go and see what over 200 other quilters have linked to at Quiltville!
And these are the fabrics I chose for this mystery.  I have selected most from my collection, but I was a bit short of the black on white prints - now remedied!

Had some progress with other projects, not quite complete finishes just yet, but still, some progresses. And before showing these pictures, here is shot of the fabrics daughter T bought at a quilt shop in Haarlem, wishing I was with her!

I finished sewing all the easy pineapple blocks together, here draped over the frame:

 This is my block to be added to the Table Mountain Quilters' group quilt, out of Sunflower Fund bandana left-over fabrics.  It is paper-based, so that all the blocks should be the same size.  The printing on the fabrics include the word "Hope" in most, if not all, the eleven official languages of South Africa:

And because the pineapple blocks no longer on the design "wall", now have laid out the kaleidoscope blocks made in September in the workshop with Bettie van Zyl of Hermanus.  It was a 2-day class, but could only attend the first day... so although saw some of Bettie's quilts, am now taking wild guesses at how the layout should be approached - just what looks appealing is probably best:


  1. I adore your fabrics for Easy Street. And I'm looking forward to part 2 tomorrow. Hope to use som fabrics with bright colours then.

  2. Wow! Love your quilts, you have got a lot done lately. Your 4-patches are lovely as are the other fabrics you have chosen. Looking forward to the next clue.

  3. You are amazing and get so much done! One of these days I might get more organized.


Thank-you for visiting. Are you a quilter?
