Work in progress

Hi friends,

here is a sneek peak of my blocks to Doris. She is my swap partner for April in the Quilt block swap Australia. I hope she likes them. Next week they will fly from the Azores to Australia.

Next I show you another layout for my Civil War Blocks of the week with the neutral blocks. I am not shure if they stay out enough. Probably I should add more blocks, next week I will have time. What is your opinion?

Thanks and hugs. Pink

Hi friends,

it was quiet this week on my blog. We were busy with meetings and other stuff, but now Valentino has Easter holidays and we will have more time. Here some pictures of the week.

Sunday's flea market treasures...

Cook the soup and serve it!

Glass plates, great for summer salads.

Hi friends,

today I will show you the process of assembling the different sections of my DJ. Actually I am working on the last assembling of the top. The next step will be preparing the side borders.

Sewing together the sections.


 Trimming the batting excess.

 Trimming the fabric excess.

Measuring 1" of fabric to fold to the opposite.

Ready to fold.

Pinned in place. Now I just have to hand sew the seam.


Tomorrow I'll show you the front.....Hugs. Pink
