And with a few hours work whilst little people ate, slept, coloured and danced around, I managed to get the first block complete, and quite frankly i'm rather chuffed with it.
I have since removed the papers and given it a thorough press and it looks great (even if I do say so myself, and lets be honest, it's a great pattern- thanks to the talented Janice at Better Off Thread). I'm really looking forward to selecting the fabrics for the next rainbow quarter block, but that will have to wait for now.
And so whilst I was on a roll I got my bum in gear and made the final block for my first year in Stitch Tease, and May's queen was the lovely Cindy. She had selected barn blocks, including a completed 6 inch block, so I decided to do the non phallic version, (don't ask) and indulge my love of dots again. This was what I came up with from Lori Holts fab free pattern.
The centre block is one from Lynne and Kerry's book, and is a version of a Broken Dishes block.
And then onto my final madness. I decided to make party bags for the 20 kids joining us tomorrow- partly because awful weather is expected tomorrow and i figured they could decorate the bags to distract them from the torrential rain and thunderstorm All I can say is I'm pleased they're all finished!!
See you on the other side
