Something a bit different

This is Olga the owl and ...

This will be Gracie Giraffe when I get round to making her. I bought these  kits from Spotlight last year thinking I could make up one for my GS and one for his second cousin. Hmmm well that was last year. They are both now too old for them so I am giving them to a friend of mine for her daughter. My friend has triplet boys as well as two  older girls. The daughter is having twins! Fun to make but fiddly and I soooo hate sewing things up.

This is rosette 9 of the New Hexagon Millefiore quilt.
My sister in law is going to be a great grandmother again in January and this is for her GGS. The book came with the kit so will go with the quilt. Very simple but sweet.

I have started on Rosette 10 a , 4 of these hexies,

one of this,

and two of these. Will be interesting to see how it all looks together.... and I'm not sure where I put the other one of this that I was sewing last night. Agh, me and my memory.

and September rolls around

September Perpetually hexie... It's a lot brighter in real life but this is a happy Spring block and I am very happy with it.

Rosette 8 of the millefiore. Hmmmm, as I am just using scraps it's a case of whatever comes to mind. Some of the fabrics in this come from DS2's quilt so that has  memories which is what I am loving about this quilt. DS2 was very involved in the making of his quilt, even asking what colour I was going to use for the cornerstones! Top marks for listening to me.

I have one more rosette like this and then 6 more much smaller ones( maybe 5 or 3 hexies) which fill in the gaps so it's getting there.Have to get it done as Katja is launching a new one in Houston for next year and you just never know.

Hopefully will link with Anthea at Hibiscus Stitching
