More Blocks

Arrived home on Monday night to find a package from Quiltmania in the mail - so excited - Anni Downs' new book.

The book is fantastic.  The main reason I wanted the book was for the bag pattern - there are so many beautiful designs for projects of all sizes.

Finished off some blocks this week:  "Scrappy Trip Around the World" and "Goodnight Irene"

Have a few quilt tops to sew together over the next weeks but I could be tempted to start something new as I have blocks for at least 2 more quilt tops already cut.

I believe my "Tone it Down" quilt is going onto Sarah's frame tomorrow - very exciting.   Backing fabric for "Scrappy Trip" has been bought.  Hoping I have a large enough piece of backing fabric for "Goodnight Irene" already in the sewing room.
Another package arrived yesterday - prize from the Nowra Quilt Show - a honey bun of some Moda fabric.  Lovely surprise.

Busy weekend coming up - there's always something happening at my place.
