Catching up

I've been flitting between a few projects this week, in an attempt to get my to do list under control. The Windsor Lane baby quilt is getting closer to finished (and considering bub is due today, it's probably a bit of an urgent finish ;o) ).

I'm doing the 4x5 Modern Bee again this quarter - and I've made two out of five of the blocks so far. I really enjoy this bee - it's fun to work with the colours people have selected, and see how different the same block can look with a different palette.





I've also finally had a chance to start catching up on my QAL blocks (for the How Far Will You Go? QAL) - I've made my final block for the tutorial tomorrow, and I really want to get caught up in the next couple of weeks. Without the pressure of doing a tutorial each fortnight, I'm thinking it might be possible (?!?).

I started off with the Tassel Flower block that Jess wrote a tutorial for - and I really like it! This surprised me, as I probably would never have made this block if it hadn't been for the QAL. This one is 20" finished.


I'll be back tomorrow with my final QAL tutorial!

xx Jess
