SBS Blocks

This weekend I managed to clear up a few things in the sewing room. My desk was covering in sketches and pattern instructions (well actually scribbles which will become pattern instructions) and the ironing board was getting cluttered with half finished SBS i set to work and got these 2 finished:

Chinese Coin and Posies Around the Square.

It had been ages since ive done any needleturn applique, so i took awhile to get the hang of it again........they may not be perfect but i love them!!! I am really enjoying doing these blocks, they all present their own challenges and im learning new skills..... Im so grateful to Anne for introducing me to this quilt with her gorgeous blocks!!

No loggies for me again!!! but i cut out a heap of strips tonite, ready to sew next week, whenever i get a few spare minutes. Back to work for me tommorrow and this weeks shifts r long and tiring but i have enjoyed the last 4 days off, spending time with my family and sewing!!!

Hope ur weekend was great!!!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I just love your journal embroidery. I gather from reading through your blog that you design patterns. Are they available in the US?

  2. You have done a beautiful job of your sbs blocks. It's almost enough to tempt me to have a go but I fear they would become another ufo LOL
    I especially love the posies around the square.
    Very clever!!

  3. As usual you do great work, Rose! Both your piecing and your appliqué is splendid! I really love both your blocks! And it's so much fun for me to see how your quilt is developing - your colour choice so different from mine on this project.

  4. I like your posies block. I have a quilt pattern using posies also, but it is slightly different and I actually prefer your version.


I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog. I love hearing from you so thank you for taking the time to leave me a message. 😊
