Just a little something

This is just a little something I have been working on,from cloth kits
It comes as a kit all except for the wadding as it's supposed to be a little purse but I decided to quilt it and make it into a case for my scissors and thread when I'm out and about sewing.
I've had the kit since last summer and only in the last week decided to do something with it,it also comes with a pencil case to make.
And this is the back.

If in doubt lay it out!

This is my next project I pain stakingly laid it out last night to see how it would look I have to say even though it's just at the laid ou stage I quite like it,this is hopefully going to be for my bed if I've got enough blocks to make it big enough or the other option had been to lay it out as a nine block quilt but some how it just didn't seem to look right the colours didn't work as well in a nine block.
Maybe that can be my next project after this one???
All opnions are greatly appreciated and yes the white will be part of the quilt,they'll be white in the centre and around the outside to make the blocks go further.

A productive weekend

I have had a very productive weekend all in all late last night I finshed Alice's quilt and laid it on her bed so it would be a surprise when she woke up this morning,it sure was!
She came downstairs clutching it and said "see I told you mummy you would have it finished before I'm 18".
A bit of a joke of DH about me finishing things or not as the case maybe.

And here it is Alice's quilt.

friday night sew in,saturday report

Well I didn't get as much done as I wanted,I did make a quilt label for Alice's very nearly complete quilt no picture as yet.
But my greatest triumph was a quilt that has been a bit of a pain for me really I'm going to call it my 7 year quilt as it has been picked up and put down and picked up again quite a few times in the last 7 years,it's been made up then un-picked due to size mis-calculations,not purchasing the right amount of fabric for some of the blocks,it's been a patchwork novice's NIGHTMARE!
But last night i was determined to battle this demon under the bed and finish it for once and for all and i can reveal proudly due to the motivation of the friday night sew in I completed the top and today i purchased the backing fabric and batting.
Thank you to Heidi and Bobbi for your monthly sew in.
and now i can reveal my 7 year quilt.
