My biggest WiP at the moment is the Flower Garden quilt I’m making for my Little Miss 3 for Christmas. I have just finished making all the flowers so now it’s time to work out how to put them together.
Progress has slowed a little as plague has settled upon our house (otherwise known as the common cold). However with medication (in the form of Panadol and chocolate – equal doses), I’m getting there.
These are my four favourite blocks I think. Maybe. It’s hard to pick just a few. They are all so pretty! This is such a lovely line of fabric – my photos don’t do it justice. (Ok in plain speak, my photos are crap today and I can’t be arsed to retake them. I’d much rather go to bed and feel sorry for myself in my snot-induced state.)
The fabric line is Daydream by Kate Spain and the pattern is paper pieced – of course. I have just listed it in my Craftsy shop for those interested.
I have made 12 flowers altogether. 6 in blue, 6 in pink. Despite my Lulu’s protest that they should be all pink, pink, pink. Regular readers will recognise a theme here. Miss 3 (a self declared Princess of Everything) only likes pink apparently. Red is occasionally permitted, maybe purple, but really the entire world should be pink. I’m trying to gently break it to her that while she may be Princess of Everything, it’s not possible for everything to be pink, and other colours are nice too.
I think as long as I back this quilt in pink, pink, pink and use a pink binding, I should be able to get away with this. If not, well clearly Christmas will be ruined (please don’t underestimate a 3 year old’s ability for drama when pink is involved! Never go against a threenager when pink is on the line! And thanks Serena for the accurate description of a 3 year old!).
Right moving on. I think you’ve gotten the importance of pink in our household. My other project in the works is the Christmas Robin mini. Yep. No progress there but I plan to do something with it, hopefully today.
This little pattern is also available as a freebie in my Craftsy shop. But be quick, it’s only free for a couple more days, then it’s being put to work.
Oh and I shall leave with a reminder – the linky party for the And Sew On Big Finale/Show and Tell starts tomorrow! Looking forward to seeing your projects! Projects need to be finished (unless you’re putting all 9 blocks together – then I think a quilt top is sufficient!). Check the page here for details and the list of prizes on offer.
And that’s where I’m up to for WiP Wed.How about you?
