This and that

Today has been a day of flitting here and there, doing a bit of this and a bit of that, I finished the binding on a quilt to be delivered to the hospital tomorrow, did a load of washing, put a stew in the crockpot and then cut many One Block Wednesday pieces
Now I have over 100 to sew together!

Some wet weather working its way up the bay this morning.

I have started another Aussie Hero's quilt, the request is black and Star Wars, hubby says it is boring, so I had better think about making is more interesting!

I have been stitching away on an Old Time Kaleidoscope Block, all three yellow and brown pieces have ben sewn together and then unpicked and sewn back together the correct way...I will be super careful with the next one!!

This Old Time Kaleidoscope block has nearly ground to a halt as I made a cutting mistake and am waiting on some more blue fabric.

and this afternoon I put a wide piece on the top and bottom of the Minions quilt, hopefully it is now long enough for a three year old to cuddle under. Now it needs wadding, I have some fleecy for the backing to make it extra cuddly.
Time to get some dinner once again!
Happy stitching.

It’s the perfect weather for being inside stitching. How frustrating with your EPP blocks. They will be beautiful once they are finished. I’m sure the Stat r Wars quilt will be interesting by the time it is finished.

You have been busy working on many projects and still getting washing done and tea organised...
Hmm!! I think the Black and StarWars quilt will suit a guy...

Another lovely minions quilt to put a smile on a child's face and your "boring" quilt is fine lol. Love tge kaleidoscope blocks. I actually have that 1st one but had problems with the fussy cutting. Brrrrrr, it is soooooo cold here and it was a very wet and, windy day here. I even had trouble getting into my car as the wind kept pushing against the door so I couldn't open it lol. Another yucky day today. Keep warm.

I think the star wars top looks great, sometimes less is more especially with really busy feature fabric.

Mistakes can be frustrating, but the outcome is lovely nonetheless. Love the colors in your first kaleidoscope block! And you know I love the Minions in any form! Enjoy the rest of your week!

That's how you got so many Wednesday blocks done on retreat! =) On the Hero quilt, shoot some appliqu├ęd A and B-wing fighters and a TIE fighter across the black, and you're in!
