I've been so snowed under with works in progress that I haven't had time to blog about them!

Here is a Tula Pink-heavy quilt top that's *nearly* finished.
I love all the leafy, new-shoot, springy greens.  The majority of these blocks are made with Tula's 'Prince Charming' and there are a couple of liberty prints in there left over from another project.  

And then there's the two identical bed quilts that require a LOT of applique and a LOT of thread!
I've become a real whizz at satin stitch after appliqueing 672 petals - I'm halfway through now, so only another 672 to go!  Yay! :-/

I'm also still working on the English paper pieced throw quilt for my parents

and a tee-pee! 

I've also had some work done on my house and that involved moving the entire contents of my sewing room into my son's room for a week.  Still, it meant that I was able to get some much needed shelving up at the same time.

It's not a perfect system, but at least I can see where everything is.

As an added bonus my two sewing machines, Joan and Pearl, have their own shelf now.

My garden has also lured me away from my sewing to-do list...

What's not to love about cowslips?  This one has self-seeded into my lawn and I've mowed around it because it's so sweet.  

Spring is a wonderful thing!  

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


  1. Your Tula quilt caught my eye. I love the color scheme and have been stashing something similar that I just haven't started yet.

    1. I love Tula Pink and spent ages wondering what to do with her bold prints. Good luck with your project :).

  2. Leafy, new-shoot, spring green is the best shade - I love how it makes this quilt pop! 1344 applique leaves and EPP... now that's patience in abundance! Lovely projects!
    Greetings from Germany!

    1. Hello Allison and thank you! I'm the least patient person I know so maybe it's just madness?! Love from England :)

  3. I love your quilt with all its greens and your beautiful Spring plants, too!

  4. Gorgeous Tula Pink top! I love that block... and the fabrics on the petals are awesome...

  5. The Tula fabric quilt is just luscious! Really lovely WIP's!

    1. Love your FMQ baby quilt, too - have tried to leave a comment on your blog but for some reason Wordpress and I have issues and I'm such a Luddite I have no idea how to do anything vaguely technical!

  6. Those greens and blue greens are beautiful. It's going to be a gorgeous quilt.
