What have I been up to...?

Earlier tonight I realized it have been some time since my last post. So what have I been up to? Well it’s not all that much in the world of quilting… I have been busy at work most of last week, this weekend I was in Gothenburg with friends and these past two days I have been at a seminar. But I still have been able to keep up the work on some swap blocks (sorry the pic is a bit weird):

This is some of my blocks for the blue and white SBS swap. I have signed up for 10 sets of 5 blocks, and I’m also making one block of each set for myself – all in all I’ll be making 60 blocks. I have also been able to start paper piecing my tumbling blocks for the swap, and I hope to be able to do some more stitching this weekend.

I have only been able to make one more block for my own SBS – it was finished a few days ago:

It is a bit crooked and strange, but this is the most difficult appliqué I have ever attempted, and not being a wiz at the technique, I’m pleased with it.

Wow. The applique looks like a real pro did it! I think it's wonderful! And the blue blocks are very nice too! :)

I love your applique, I only do it with vislflix and my button hole stitch so i think you are clever! The blue blocks look good, Tracey

It is probably crooked only in your eyes. It looks perfect to me. And the blue blocks, all lovely. It seems you still have plenty to do there so I won´t keep you longer. Take care.
