Wow donniesgirl, that block looks absolutely amazing, the colours blend so smoothly, you must have one hell of a stash and the pateince of a Saint! Smiley

Also really loving all the paintbox blocks that have appeared since I last had a peek, they are such rich colours, I think that's one on my to do list now

I've posted my last blocks up for Fontiua which will be sent Tues as I can never get a lunch break on a Monday.

Can't believe I'm all done, but so pleased I've done it in time before moving in Sept, now I'm just going to be board stalking Cheesy

carolmb, I love that koi, that is amazing, is that all pieced together? It looks so intricate. I also just love your hunter stars, they are just so perfect.

Thanks for all the comments, The braid I was worried about because when I sewed the white triangles on it almost appeared to be curving but it came out just fine, maybe a trick of the eye or it was late, I've no idea. I did less double stitching but the odd time i forgot! I guess it's a habit that will take a while to shift!

And I am just itching to see the celtic twist top come together, they are all just fab blocks, the contrast looks stunning

Nothing like some motherly love to sort out the nerves carolmb Smiley

I could do with some mum attention, I just ran out of white cotton and she lives over an hour away! So just the one uploaded for Fotunia today, I'll be heading to the shops to address this situation tomorrow but I fear it will work out worse for the bank balance! lol

lightbulb moment!  Smiley

I suppose not having quite done the full quilt top to actual quilt yet I didn't really think about that! Thanks alwaysinmyroom, much appreciated Smiley

Ok, I need to stop double stitching, all this quilting goes against everything I was taught at school!

I love this swap, everything it teaches me and all of you, very inspirational!

Big thanks

Just uploaded EllaRains, this swap is going too fast!  However, should be done in time to move Smiley

One question, Do you double backstitch each start and stop you do when piecing together?

My quilt is going to be turned into a baby quilt, I just found out my cousin is expecting in January, even for a less experienced quilter, that should be enough time assuming I don't do too much Xmas crafting!

Donniesgirl that moon block is lovely

Sparledust love the stars the colors are great



Thanks, I was so pleased to get to use some of that teapot/saucer/cup fabric, my mum bought it (as part of a random bundle) for my birthday but I've had nothing to use it on until now Smiley

Oh my hubby is the same, he doesn't understand the quilting especially, he says 'so you take some fabric apart and put it back together again?'

oh well, he always says he likes me sewing as it makes me happy so even if he doesn't quite understand he always takes an interest Smiley

I posted my first batch that are already in the gallery today and have started on EllaRain's. Soon to be uploaded but I'm coming in a 1/4 inch short or so, so may need to re-do those with a very tight seam allowance.

I'm loving all the colours this round, I can't wait to move so I have some space to get a stash like some of you have, those scrappy blocks are incredible.

So after some inspiring reading of sample blocks I ditched the green (and kept as a sample block!) as it was not matching up in the middle well enough for my liking and I've completed the other two. I think the blue backgrounds tie them together even though they are different. I played with the triangles too to experiment.

Everyone's help in the last swap has improved my seams so much, I just can't thank everyone for the difference it has made and apologise for the last ones I did in the last swap as I thought I was doing the right thing but a one sided seam is just so much neater.

I'm loving the bright colours in the gallery, I'm especially loving the orange four patch stars and fiery Celtic twist blocks, it's just such a strong theme of colour, they pop so well in these blocks.

Happy sewing everyone
