WooFa in MarCH

Another finish... & I'm so blooming happy 👵...
My BLooM quilt has been quilted by Julie... returned to me... had the binding added & the label too... so I've completed a challenge for March ... yippee...
I LoVe this quilt & I'm so happy with Julie's choice as it sets the quilt off beautifully.
Even the backing is delicious ... I'm just SO happy with every aspect of this quilt...
BLooM measures 86 inch square... & will stay in my home.

I'll get better pic's outside, once the rain has stopped & the sun is out.
Julie quilted "leaves" on the quilt... & it's the PeRFecT choice.

WeeK 1... In the CuBByHoLe

As we are all at home social distancing from "friends"... I plan on being productive... so, this week I worked on several projects...
A Charity quilt...
The scrap blocks were taken to the recent retreat & partially sewn together.
As the flimsy has now been finished... it will go to the guild to be quilted & bound.
This flannel quilt will measure 42in x 63in.

Once Upon A Time...
Some "tramming" was added to a few blocks in my GD's quilt.
Then the top 3 blocks were joined together & I must say I'm very happy so far.

P.I.C.U quilt...
After pinning this cot quilt at FNSI... I quilted & added the binding to finish it off.
This scrappy flannel quilt measures 24in x 30in.

String Blocks...
I used light colours scrap strips & made   of 24 blocks.
This "charity" quilt will probably be more suitable for a female.

A Flimsy...
I cut 16 of  91/2 inch squares in 3 colours from my kids "FaT 1/4" tub.
Easy peasy stitching &... viola... another 36 inch PICU quilt top is ready for sandwiching & quilting. I'll work on finishing this one next week...

I hope you've had a creative "socially distanced" week as well...

... the SnoWMaN came to my house this month.
He plans on staying until NeXT Christmas...

The cushion measures 14 inch square & has a zip closing back.
The FREE SNoWMaN template is available from... Shiny Happy World... >> HeRe.
He will keep JoLLy the ELF company... previously shown >> HeRe.


When my Canadian Sister-in-laws visited recently... they loved the ELF cushion... so I said I would make them one each. Well... now it's one down with one to go.
JoLLy will have several brothers around the globe one day...

Thanks Narelle...  the year 2020 is going well thanks to your encouragement.

I added the feet & the final few hand stitches to finish my PoPPinS bag.
It's large, roomy, with an outside pocket & handles that fit over the shoulder.
I purchased the pattern...HeRe... & it's called Aunties Two Patterns Poppins Bag.
I'm really HaPPy with how this turned out...👍

I also sandwiched a P.I.C.U quilt ready for quilting...

And then I cut a few 21/2 inch squares for my Once Upon a Time quilt...

So THANK YOU Wendy for having me over for FNSI.
I hope everyone else had a great night too.

I also finished my "poppins" bag ... but a pic of that will be shown later.

It was a great few days spent with like minded ladies who all enjoy a laugh.

DuRinG the WeeK...

2... Cut the remaining flannel scrap I had on hand for another charity quilt...

3... Played with some fabric & partially made a "Poppins" bag...

4... Partially prepared an applique block for "Once Upon a Time" quilt...
Perhaps over the weekend I'll get the remaining blocks prepared...🤞

At FNwF...

I managed to cut & then sew both borders on my "BLooM'' quilt.
I already chose the perfect backing fabric to compliment the "flower colours"... so... it's now ready to go off to "Julie the Quilter"... so she can work her magic.

* * * * *
I also made another chain link block for the RSC 2o2o.
This months colour is "TeaL"... & although technically this block is NoT all "TeaL"... two chains would qualify & the other two are perhaps "turquoise"...
but it's all the scraps I owned in this colour group.

How did you go?     Accomplish what you set out to do?
Fingers crossed that you had FuN stitching away with some FRieNDs.
If you would like to see what other "friends" worked on... click HeRe.

Oh ScraP

After finishing all 24 string blocks ✅ ... & adding the joining sashing ✅.
It's really an easy way to join a QAYG quilt... & the binding finished off...✅
I now have another charity quilt to donate made CoMPLeTeLy from scraps...
yes completely... backing (left over)... mostly joined batting... & front (from scraps).
This quilt measures 40in x 60in.

My scrap bucket LoVes me ATM... & as I've developed a FuN & EnJoYabLe addiction...😍... I think I'll do another one, in the not so distant future...

* * * * *

I also found a single piece of fabric suitable for a PICU "cot".
The fabric was left over from a baby quilt from years ago & even the backing off cut was just the correct size. The batting was pieced together from 4 small scraps.
This quilt measures 24 inch x 30 inch & suits a BoY.
Although the S.I.C. said she wanted a few "boys" quilts -
the "giraffe" applique, design & colour ... would suit either gender really.
