More SBS Blocks

Diann and I are plugging away at our Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Blocks.  I've sewn up a few over the last week and have a few more cut out ready to sew up when the mood strikes.  I had a look on-line and found some pieced alternatives to some of the foundation pieced blocks in the SBS book.

I made up for the lack of yellow blocks.

Corrected Milky Way - had to change it.

Last weekend I finally got around to sewing up a pouffe for Jenni - I've had this material for over a year.  It needs a bit more stuffing.  It's already stuffed with a couple of old jumpers, lots of batting off-cuts and some fibrefill.  I saw the idea for using the old jumpers in a Kathy Doughty designed pouffe in Quilters' Companion.

This photo is from the car while driving to Sydney last weekend.


The little sewing bag Sarah made for me earlier this year is so handy - love it!

Last photo is of Gingham Girls Block 3 - this has been finished for months and I realised last week I hadn't taken a photo.  I'll attach buttons and pearls once the quilt top is finished and quilted.

Block 4 has been my tv-watching stitching for the last couple of weeks.  I really enjoy stitching these blocks but they may need to be put aside soon to do some Christmas goodies.
