Some bits and pieces



We've been quite busy the past few days, so not a lot of sewing has been done, however I did have time to pin together a quilt (which will actually be a tablecloth) ready for quilting. Not sure how I will quilt it yet, but at least it's pinned together now!

I have also been slowly but surely putting together the blocks for the homespun tree skirt - there are now 16 units of 4 blocks. This is my least favourite part of making a quilt (or at least, if the quilt is composed of blocks) - joining the blocks into rows or squares and so on into a quilt top. Soon I will have the whole top pieced. Then it will (no doubt!) sit in my sewing room because there's plenty of time, until round about November when I panic and remember it's supposed to be finished as a gift...



And here's the finished baby quilt - I finished the binding a few days ago, but keep forgetting to photograph it.

That project will make a beautiful table cloth. Nice work!

Kate, both of those are gorgeous.
I must say that joining the blocks is more "nerve wracking" to me. I fret over matching the corners and usually have a few that are off a bit. C'est la vie!
