I've now been quilting for three and a half years. This blog is my personal quilting diary, that charts my progress (and occasional regression) from the start. I use it so I can look back at my past projects...and hopefully see my skills improve!

Things Eventually Turn Up!

Last week I couldn't find the third block for the Di Ford Wedding Sampler quilt that I had started.  This morning, as I was looking for something else, it appeared (right in the middle of my sewing table)!  I have NO idea how I could have missed seeing it, as I tidied the table a few days ago!  The half-sewn block was still sitting in it's baggie labelled Block 3.  Anyway, it is now finished.  I made a mistake - the inner part of the star should be in a different fabric - note to self - READ the pattern properly!  I still need to work on my needleturn points!  There should be arcs between the arms of the star, but this would have covered most of the background fabric, so I gave them a miss.  I did, however a little fussycut hexagon to the centre of the star.  I couldn't resist.

First three blocks now made, so I am on schedule.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make any progress with my mystery quilt, as I'm still awaiting the fabric pack.


  1. Oh yes I know that just found it feeling! When it was there ALL ALONG! Your block looks great and its always nice to make it your own way anyway. As for crochet, there are hundreds of booty patterns on pinterest, I don't know how they always seem to find me but they are always in my feed?!! These are darling and I love your bling too!
