N&TT and FNWF

My dinner tonight for FNWF.... YUMMY


I have been at home sewing today. BUT first of all I had to clean my workroom so I could sit at the sewing machine. I started yesterday working out what I was going to work on. I am linking up with
My Quilt Infatuation.... Needle & Thread Thursday
I have been using up some 6" RSC14 sampler blocks from Angela's at http://superscrappy.blogspot.com.au
I put them into my WONKY STAR STRUCK blocks and completed a flimsy.
Here is my room tidy.. Well it is for me.....

While I was making the blocks I have started a Leaders & Enders project with Bonnie Hunters  http://quiltville.blogspot.com.au/2005/06/string-spider-web.html quilt block.

And here is my flimsy. I think it looks great...

  5. Using the RSC blocks as centres for your stars is a wonderful idea. I just love your setting! There is no one distinct block as they all interlock to form the whole. This took some very careful planning for a colourful finish.

  13. Oh, what an excellent way to use up sampler blocks! I have a lot of orphans and now know what to do with them!
    I made that string spider web quilt for my grandson and used spider web fabric for the kites. It's a great stash buster for sure.

  25. I love getting to see your sewing space, Jo. It is so big compared to mine. Mine is sort of the size of a large walk in closet, but it works for me. Maybe some day when my girls get married I will move into one of their rooms.

    I just love seeing all of your projects. You do beautiful work!
