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.
