Slowly

 plugging away here, I finished a quilt on Tuesday for the local Kinship Carers

Made from 6 fat quarters, this has made a tiny difference to my stash!!
And this weeks Anthology block.
I found this cute little guy at the local newsagents, so am in the process of knitting him a vest and then he/she will go off to Jan Mack of Oz Comfort Quilts, it is getting closer to Christmas (gulp) so I am sure cuddly toys will be needed.
I have spent the morning doing domestics and have moved onto making binding, cutting and ironing pieces for another quilt. Now for some lunch and then back to it again.
Happy stitching.

He's a very friendly looking fellow. He's going to be even sweeter in his sweater lol
Good on you for thinking of others, and Christmas.

It may have used minimal fabric, but a finish is always good. And this one is very pretty. So is your anthology block.

LOVE the quilt dancing with all those happy batiks! Just gorgeous, Sue. The Anthology block is lovely and oh how sweet the little guy is in his sweet knitted jacket. I had not heard of Jan Mack. I am off to discover her blog. I would like to read about her charitable initiative. Does her blog give details where to send donations? It sounds as if you have a lot of sewing to occupy your days, Sue. Have fun.

Hi Sue. Your fat 1/4 quilt turned out great - you make is sound simple - I'll bet its not 😉😊 Love the little guy you knitted the jumper for - what a great idea.

Beautiful quilt, letting those batiks shine! Did you use a pattern or make it up?
That is a very colorful Anthology block, and a clever design. Really pretty.
Is that a little sloth you dressed up? So cute.

That is a beautiful quilt. I love the fluorescent fabrics. I am sure the Kinship Carers will appreciate it. The Anthology Block is just spectacular.

Cute little critter

Love that pattern in the top quilt - looks like a quick win.

Gorgeous Anthology block - it is going to look wonderful - do you have far to go?

That quilt is quite stunning with those colours. Cute little guy you are knitting for. He will be well loved and cherished by a lucky child.

You're doing so well keeping up with your Anthology blocks - it's going to be a cool quilt when you're done. You're very generous with your charity sewing (and knitting) - well done!

I really like that block. It would be fun to see several of those blocks together in one quilt.
