I took part in the Sew in with continuing my jelly roll quilt, finishing of a Dresden Plate block and trying out a small Japanese style block. I continued this morning with the jelly roll quilt and its looking quite good so I can leave the quilt top for a week while we're on holiday next week.
So first off is the Japanese quilt block which I made from Susan Briscoe's book of 130 Little Quilt Blocks, which is quite a handy "library" of blocks ranging from Amish style to Japanese to Crazy. When looking at the blog on her website here the larger version of this block, Igeta, makes some super quilts so after coming home from work gave this little block a try.
While watching the television last night I sat with the Dresden Plate sampler block and finished hand sewing. This is the last of six blocks I've made this year and will work out joining together with sashing soon, here a pic of the finished block
David and I are going on holiday from tomorrow heading for Dover then by ferry on Monday and travelling up to Venlo in Holland. We're going to be visiting the Floriade festival which happens there once every 10 years. Never been before and we're looking forward to going there.
See you in a week's time.
