More Blocks

Work has consumed most of my time over the last few days (and all this weekend unfortunatley grrr lol) but i have sewn 2 more SBS Blocks:

Batchelors Puzzle and Star of the Orient

These actually looked harder on paper than they were to make......they were fun and im getting much better at setting in squares. I couldnt resist any longer, I had to sew a DJ block!!! I love love love this quilt too and i really shouldnt be starting anything new, but i did lol!:

Pinwheel Gone Awry

I have been presented with a challenge ( i love a challenge!!!). My mum works at the Tas Academy of Dance and she has been successfully selling my patterns to the ladies down there.....they have asked if i will design a "Ballet Bag" with pockets for the Ballet slippers and costume shoes, hair ties etc mind is already flooded with ideas!!!!......i had planned on working on a medallion quilt with a stitchery centre as my next design, but hey i am open to what people want, i can wait on this design.

Hope u get tonnes of quilting done this weekend!!! Im working and DH is ripping our bedroom apart ready for renovations (which means painting for me next week!!!! i love to paint (not the clean up though!!!)

Take care,


  1. Love your blocks, Rose! And you're right, those SBS blocks looks harder on paper than they really are :o) Love your DJ block as well! Are you going to trick me into starting this one? Don't have time!!! I just recieved a new BOM in the mail today - and I know I won't be able to do any sewing this weekend. Friends coming over from England, looking forward to seeing them again :o)

    I'm so happy to read you are getting requests for new Threadbare designs! And there will be time to make the medalion stitchery quilt when you have the ballet bag done :o)

    Renovating the bedroom sounds like fun! Have fun painting next week! Wishing you a great weekend! Lots of quilty hugs!
