My grandson's quilt is ready for binding. I should get that finished this evening.(Update Wednesday: the binding is still only half done)
Pattern by Maaike Bakker in "Strip-Pieced Quilts" (That Patchwork Place.)
|place-mat from orphan block|
Before starting the FMQ I had a trial run with an orphan block from the quilt top which I built out with some of the off-cuts and made a place-mat.
|the back of the place-mat|
I also bought some more fabric in February:
|from r to l: |
2 FQ's with sewing notions design (impulse),
3.5m with flowers for background for Celtic Solstice,
1m with girls with umbrellas (sweet & impulse)
1m with houses for place-mat backing
(after many months resisting the impulse)

And worked on the Bonnie Hunter Leader and Ender Challenge 2013
|Bonnie Hunter Leader and Ender Challenge 2013|
I calculated that I'm about 1/5 of the way to completion, so Bonnie took me by surprise when, this week, she announced this year's challenge, which wasn't expected (by me at least) until July. Apparently some people have finished already!
I also made pink blocks for the RSC14 .
Now I'm linking up to Lily's Qults for:
and Guest host Stephanie from Quarter Incher at freshly pieced. go over there now to see what other people are working on.
