I'm Alive!

I can't believe it has been so long since I blogged. I got really sick with pneumonia for a while there. But not I am all better and back to sewing! YAY!

I got another of Lillbet's Garden BOMs finished yesterday.

I like the block but these fabrics are getting uglier by the block. I'm really hoping that when it is all put together and quilted I will like it. If nothing else it will be good practice if I ever get around to doing all the applique.

As I look at the picture it is not that the fabrics themselves are ugly, I just find the impact to be jarring, where I had expected from the picture on the website, and the pattern, to be softer. Oh well, I will see when it is all done.

I have made some progress on my Triple Irish Chain for the Two Colour challenge. I have the strip sets done and am hoping to get them cut and finished this week.

I cannot find the disolvable foundation papers anywhere so now I am trying to decide what to use to finish the paper pieced blocks. I'm hoping to surf around later and find some thing.

Glad to hear you are feeling better Cara! I just started this blogging business lol found ur site thru some quilting blog locator something or other which I joined, I live in London too!
Anyway, I like the colours, there is a nice contrast and I think once its all quilted its going to look really good. The green u have in it is big in home decor right now too.

Keep on quilting =)
