Week in review

This week the new colour came out in the rainbow scrap challenge for February… it's pink (for a brief glorious moment I thought it was purple). So I started on some HSTs for "love is like a butterfly".

I got them all chain pieced and pressed so just the trimming is left.

I used EQ5 to make a layout for my "charming rainbow" quilt so I could get an idea of where I wanted the star to be in each block I came up with this

Using this plan I laid out my pink charms for the lighter pink block; no sewing on that one yet though.

This week I also started on a Goodnight Irene SAL put on by Terry's Treasures I drew up a plan (again on EQ5)

The monthly goal was five blocks and because I'm trying not to by fabric for a while I'm only working on the 16 patches for now 

This fabric line is called scrumptious and reminds me so much of Strawberry Shortcake so the quilt will be called "Custard and Strawberry" if you get this you might be a child of the eighties too ;)

Last but not least I got the quilting done for "Jack's Jack" now it just needs binding. I'm planning on using a red white and blue stripe


  1. My word you have been busy and you have some exciting projects in the pipeline!

  2. Your Good Night Irene will be very pretty. I love it!

  3. Nice plan for your wonky stars quilt. It's still early days for the February blocks. I haven't done any sewing either.

  4. What size have you done Jacks Jack

  5. Sorry it wasn't purple yet, but I do like your pink squares. Not to worry though, purple will have its turn too. I'm getting so tempted by goodnight Irene, so many pretty versions are coming together.
