Doesn't Time Fly...

When you're having fun sewing that is.  I can't believe it's almost the end of January!

I have been busily working on some new projects.  All are English paper pieced, some with a bit of applique and of course lots of fussy cutting.


Here are some close-ups of some of the blocks 
This fabric is great for fussy cutting...

I'm having heaps of fun with this one!

I've also started working on a quilt with Mariner's Compass blocks (English paper pieced of coure!)

Here's a little sneak peak of what I've done so far

There's lots more to come on this one... circles, stars and lots more of that yummy border print!

And... I've added some more Lucy Boston blocks.

There are a few more projects I want to show you but I'll save that for another post.

Happy stitching
