Finish Friday

I hope to get a lot more sewing done today because I really can't come up with a reason not too (other then the fact that there is still no TV in the basement).  I have however come up with a couple of finishes to share this week.  I am done with two lovely pin cushions from Liberty Love.

I got two blocks done for Quilt for Boston and sent off.  I might be able to make more but  I didn't want to take the chance of letting my procrastination get in the way of me following through with this.

I finished some embroidery as well.

This one for my niece, Abigail's, birthday bag.

This is to be used as a center panel for a quilt as Aneely did in her book Sweet Stitches.

I got to sew the pieces for my Bloom Bloom POW top together. 
What do you think of the color?  I like everyone individually but together it takes some getting use to.  I don't know but its a little to late I guess.  I am however enjoying the process of making it and learning new things and ways of putting things together, thanks to our fantastic guide Lee from Freshly Pieced.  All that's left is to make sure I like this lay out and sew the half hexis together into rows and the rows together.

There are a few things I will be working on over the weekend as well as some stuff I would love to day dream about starting.

Already started:
English Paper Piecing Tickety Tock
Abigail's bag
Virtual Bee Blocks
April's Sisters Ten Block (I've really been holding off on this one, best for last right?)

Thanks for joining me, I'm linked up over at TGIFF w/ What a Hoot and Crazy Mom Quilts


  1. Wow, you've got some great things going on here - I especially love the little liberty pincushions!

  2. Those pincushions are really nice - and I absolutely adore the girl on the swing. :D Thanks for linking at TGIFF.

  3. wow, there is lots of happening. nice projects.

  4. ohhh, I just made a similar quilt to your Bloom Bloom POW. Love your colors. And you are brilliant to stitch the triangle rows together. I am getting my 60degree groove on! I used Jaybird's Ballerina pattern. Check it out.

  5. You're one busy lady! Lovely lovely things. The stitiching looks perfect!

  6. I love they Bloom Bloom POW. The colors really work well together. It may be that you aren't sure because most of your brights are in the lower right corner and your more muted colors are in the upper left corner. Maybe swap one of the lime green blocks with the rosy peach color to balance it out a little more.
