This is the latest block I have done, a wonky pinwheel, sorry I did not write down where I found it and cannot remember but I rather like the effect.
I have also done the little bunny BOM for august which is the missouri star, one more to go for the 12 but Alison is going to give us some additional ones to make as well. I can`t tell you how much I have enjoyed doing these blocks. Each month Alison gives us a choice of 3 blocks and we vote for the one we would like to do, I think the last one I have voted for is the bow tie but it all depends on how others vote, whichever is chosen will be okay with me.
My crazy block for august is also done and met with Helen`s approval.
On friday I am going down to Birmingham for three days to the festival of quilts, so looking forward to it, there will be about 1000 quilts on display so if that does not inspire me nothing will. Plenty of photos will be taken as I will charge the camera up each evening. There will also be over 300 stands with lots of wonderful things to purchase, I do have a list but I am sure I will stray from it and be tempted. Have today watched a video on applique pressing sheets and that has been added to my list as I must have a go at applique and if this will make it easier it is a must have. Along with the quilts and temptations there are workshops and demonstrations on the stands too what a great time I am going to have.
I am saving my EPP block for august to do whilst I am away in the evening, this month it is a sun.
Tomorrow Heidi my 22 year old bernina is going in for her first ever service , I am sure she will be the better for it and will be a lot quieter when she comes home next monday. Now I am quilting she will need to be serviced more often as cotton makes fluff etc. If I feel the need to machine stitch in the mean time I will get my new home out which is about 35 and has been serviced once!!
Think that is all for now, happy stitching
