making more stuff

.. well, because that's how I roll!

anyhow, back to the FAL list,  yeah, it may have been a little ambitious!

so, My Brit Bee quilt (round One) was a pile of blocks ...


and I made some more ...



and have the top pieced - yayyyyyyy me!



now, i have a few customer quilts to get out the way, so this baby is going to have to take a back seat for now in the quilting list .... so not quite a finished quilt, but a complete top!

I consider that a success!

and of course there was these pile of fabric to make a big blocks quilt ...


so I added a few more ...


well, they looked a little lonely ... I had to!

but they make great Big Blocks!


and four blocks ...


you soon have a quilt!  might persevere and try and sneak this one in soon!

Big Blocks all Art Gallery Fabrics - gorgeous!

currently 72 x72"


so, 2 more on my FAL Q1 list, not exactly finished, but getting close enough to call it done imho!

Your Brit Bee quilt looks amazing- we made similar blocks at hipbees for Catherine and I love the effect and secondary patterns when they are all pieced together.

I'm also getting green eyed over the big blocks star quilts (as well as your giant star from previous posts) - I really will have to give some of these bigger blocks a go, just for the fun of it!

Wowwee you have some great finishes here, and I meant to say yesterday that the quilt you showed in your last post is super. I love it.

Your Brit Bee quilt looks so good now it is pieced. I can't believe that you have gone for another star quilt (well I can actually!). It looks so scrummy in those fabrics. Di x
