Little Blocks

Far out time is going so quickly.  Saturday was Michael's birthday, so Mum and I went to visit him on Saturday afternoon and then minded Gulliver while Michael and Peta went out for dinner and to see a band or two.
I've been slowly working away on a custom quilt, another Piccadilly Circus.  It's almost ready to hand over for quilting.  I really like the green spot for the centres and the same fabric will be used for the binding.

A friend in USA and I will be making "Spool Sampler" over the next few months.  The blocks are cotton reels with a different block (4-1/2" finished) in the centre of each cotton reel.  Yesterday I found a little container full of half-square triangle blocks all pretty much the perfect size for some of these blocks.  There are six small blocks in the pattern, so we've decied to add a few other blocks to give the quilt a bit more variety.  Not sure yet how many I'll need to make as I'll probably make the quilt larger than the pattern.  Another quilt using up lots of scrap fabric is always a plus.

The pile of crochet hexagons has grown - there are enough to start joining some together.

So looking forward to next weekend - only thing planned is stitching with the girls on Saturday afternoon.  There are a few things I need to finish off for up-coming birthdays.

The Piccadilly Circus is a great pattern, isn't it? Good work Lynda!
