15 min play BOM and Block Lotto

I haven't had much time for sewing this month what with a holiday and the birth of our first grandson.

I am getting so far behind in the 15 mins play BOM. I have lots of made fabric so just need to construct the blocks now.

This is my progress so far. The checkerboard block is one of my own - not sure whether to include it in this quilt - will see when I get a few more blocks made.


I have also finished my Block Lotto blocks for this month. They are African Violets. I think they are gorgeous and would love to win this month although I haven't done anything with the clover blocks I won a few months ago.

At present my spare time is taken up with knitting peggy squares to make a blanket for my grandson.


Lovely fabrics you're working with. I'm a sucker for turquoise--very pretty, even if unfinished.
best, nadia

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.

Light Up Your Landscape - Gloria Loughman Class

A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class.  It was run by Gloria Loughman
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced.  I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us.  This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces.  I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
