Work but not much progress!

When I posted a photo of 4 blocks completed for the Siblings Together appeal, I didn't really plan on making very many more as I knew we were going away for a couple of days and I think I only signed up to make 4 blocks anyway. Those log-cabin style blocks, however, turned out to be quite addictive. There was always just another combination that might work and would only take a few minutes to put together! So, this is what I ended up with

I even managed to incorporate a few of the charm squares that I won in Erin's fugly fabric giveaway a few weeks ago. I think I'm finished making these blocks but maybe not and a quilt of this block is definitely in my future, but not just yet! Especially given the lack of progress on my current projects :)

The round-up does not make very rewarding reading.


  • Reindeer Cushion
  • Shades of Green, Fleur Bleu, Checkered Heart and Orange cushions 
  • Orphan Block needle roll 
  • Pieced arc tea towel  
  • Yo-yo maker purse 
  • Padded hangers and tutorial

  • 3 blocks of In Color Order HST BOM (1 block behind schedule) 
  • (Almost) Irish Chain quilt now basted 
  • 2 Zakka-style SAL projects completed (2 projects behind schedule)
  • First border of teatime quilt completed, blocks calculated and fabric cut
  • 4 blocks of NY Beauty QAL completed (4 blocks behind schedule)
  • 8 blocks of Craftsy BOM completed (on schedule) 
  • Play mini-quilt challenge design almost finalised 
  • Yellow rainbow cushion waiting to be appliqued


  • Indigo and violet rainbow cushions
  • Last block of Sampler quilt
  • Amy Butler bag 
  • Bag Making Bible Fashionista Bag

I hope you have been having a more productive time than I have. We have a family wedding to go to later this month, so I am hoping that one of those bags will finally move from the Waiting list to the Completed list otherwise I will have nothing to carry my lipstick in!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday


  1. Oh I haven't had a v productive week either! Lots of thinking but not much producing! x

  2. Yay, go you, a very worthwhile cause to get distracted over :o)

  3. I love your fabrics! And those log-cabin blocks are gorgeous. The first time I tried log-cabins, they brought me to tears of frustration. I swore I'd never make any again. Then I ran across a scrappy, alternative way of making them, and... I can't stop. You're right - very addictive.

    Good luck getting a bag done in time for the wedding!

    1. Thanks, I shall need some luck I think as the bag I would really like to make is from Amy Butler's book and I am guessing it won't be a quick make!

  4. Those blocks look fun! Great job!

  5. Oh you've been busy! The log cabin blocks look great!

  6. Fun blocks and a very good cause! Log cabins are my favorite! They are so quick to make and look great.
