Slowly but surely

For once I have some sewing output to show - not much (blame half term) but a little:

First up, a Bee block for Tracey at QuiltMeHappy:
HST quilt bee block
This is the same Tracey who so expertly long-armed my Apple Crisp quilt.  Tracey sent ready-made HST blocks and asked us to arrange them however we liked - one big block, a couple of small blocks, even all in a big long row!  No matter how wacky I tried to make my block, symmetry kept winning out so I went with this layout in the end.

The other thing I have been chipping away at is my Pervalong:

I have made all of the central blocks now but just need to sew them together into 4 quarters and then join the quarters to make the centre of the quilt.  The thing with paper piecing being backwards (well it is in my head anyway) is that I don't really have a feel of how the quilt is looking as I am going along.  I can't wait to get these blocks all together so I have something to show for it instead of 4 envelopes stuffed with numbered blocks.

Right - off to carry on binding my Apple Crisp before the 31 March comes around and it is still on my WIP list.  Not this time!


  1. Very different but nice blocks here. You are doing well with your FAL list. Di x

  2. Lovely Spring Bee block, pity we don't have the weather to match it!

  3. What lovely blocks! I love the fabrics in the first one especially :-)

  4. Loving the look of your perv!

  5. Your perv is going to be brilliant!! I love the choice of colours.
    Great bee block too! The yellow and grey look lovely!

  6. Oh I'm so looking forward to seeing your perv coming together but I know it's going to make me want to make one too! ;)
