On the Design Sheet

Whirligig blocks (7-1'2" sq finished) ready to be sewn together



First three "Tail Feathers" blocks pieced and ready to be stitched/appliqued when I've finished the red "Sweet Pea's Quilt".



I cut out the strips for these blocks when I bought a f/q set of 12 Butterscotch Patisserie fabrics and have since added to the stack of fabrics. I LOVE IT! Love the colours, designs, feel - everything.

Having a lovely time pottering about, doing nothing much except a bit of sewing/stitching, watching some movies, reading etc.  John and I went to see "Sherlock Holmes" on New Year's Eve - we enjoyed it - very dark looking film, lots of action and funny repartee between Holmes and Watson.

Loving your whirlygigs quilt - it looks terrific. Can't wait to see Tail Feathers. We went and saw Sherlock Holmes too. Was dark, but we enjoyed it also. Gees Robert Downy Jnr must have worked out for that role!

Your whirligig blocks look great. Look forward to seeing more of this quilt.
I planned to start Tail Feathers in the New Year too so I guess I can get started anytime now. Fun.
