Spring is sprung....

I am loving the fact that we are now into spring. Our 4 ewes have all lambed so we have bouncy white springiness in the fields at the moment. They are so cute, especially at dusk when they bounce around like they are on pogo sticks!


I have just finished up my Tetris quilt top and need to quilt it soon. Think I will just make a giant Tetris piece for the back. My son has nabbed this for his room. He loves the bright colours.


I have also been busy with bee blocks.  I love the online bees and have met some fabulous fellow quilters through them. This next one was an angel block for a member who did not receive a block from a fellow hive member. It's the Rocky Road to Kansas block from Faith at Fresh Lemon Quilts. Her instructions are always very clear and it was a pleasure to make.


This next one was a block for someone in my Modern Minx bee where we are all making something from the Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks  book. Jo wanted bright bold colours. I think this fits the bill!!


Another challenge was in the Modern 99 bee where Shawn wanted a little girl. I chose to free piece this one and it was fun. I am definitely a "follow a pattern" kind of girl, so this was really putting me outside my comfort zone! Very retro 70s I think!


And my last bit of creating came about as a bake-off at work where we were making cupcakes from the book Ripe which is a cafe in Auckland.  I love this book and have made so much from it. Just need to take a road trip to the cafe now! I had so much fun decorating these and it seemed a shame to eat them! Even the little ladybugs were edible.

Tetris QAL Block 2

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to the Fat Quarter Shop and Melissa for sponsoring the giveaways on this QAL. I was lucky enough to win a jelly roll of Birds and Bees by Tula Pink.  I LOVE this latest range of hers and had it on my wish list, so was overjoyed to find I had won it. Thanks so much FQS and Melissa.

I was excited to see the next block come out for the Tetris QAL.  I carefully cut out my shapes and coloured them as instructed, then gave them to my daughter to place them as she saw fit, so the end result is her interpretation. I will do this for the rest of the blocks as well, so each family member has  a say in this quilt.  I love the brightness of the solids...it's such a "happy quilt".
