Block 3 and 4

I have now finished block 3 and 4 of my 'Rose Sharon' blocks by Wendy of Legend and Lace.  They are looking pretty lined up together. Now I'm ready for number 5 Wendy!
And look what arrived in the post from lovely Jan who is making my 'Antique Tile' blocks. Enough fabric to make 4 more blocks. Thanks Jan!

Rose Garden

I have started my Rose Garden Block of the month from  'Legend and Lace' and am still working out if I like these pastels or not. I will stick with them for now, I wanted to use something different to Wendy's turkey reds and double pinks in her blocks.
You can see I got a bit lazy in the second block and left out the circles behind the flowers.
I have the next two blocks cut out and ready to sew, so hopefully I will be able to show them to you soon!
Go to Wendys website if you want to join this BOM.

October Antique Tiles

I have made eight new blocks for October. To show you what the blocks will look like when sewn together I decided to sew 16 of my blocks together. I made one more red block to add to the mix and here's the result.

If you would like to join me in this year long challenge let me know and I will send you the fabric for four blocks to get you started. Click on the icon on the right of the blog for the instructions for sewing the block.
