BOMs Away Monday

Here's the latest progress on some of my quilt projects.
I have finished another block for my Comfort quilt, 
6 down and 10 to go.

I made a scarf out of an 'Etchings' charm pack for my sister for her birthday. I followed this tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop.

I prepped another broderie perse block for my Morrell quilt. I prepared these 'lovebirds' on Valentine's Day because they looked like a romantic couple. This amazing fabric that I had to cut up is called '1840's Birds and Basics' by Harriet Hargrave for P&B Textiles. I'll have to see what else I can create out of the pieces I have left.

And I finished the fourth keystone block for my 12 Days of Christmas quilt.

CCCQ Block #4 'Nancy Smith'

This week I have finished Block #4 for my Chester County Criswell Quilt with a little help from Metro Trains and a bat with malfunctioning sonar. I usually get the bus to work but last Wednesday hubby convinced me to catch the train instead. What would normally be a 40 minute journey turned into 2 and a half hours! Would you believe that apparently a bat flew into the power-lines and caused mayhem to the signals. Luckily I had my sewing with me which kept me sane as we sat between stations not even knowing what was going on but I managed to make a lot of progress on the 'Nancy Smith' block.

I was completely cheesed off at the time and I won't be in a hurry to get the train again but as the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining and this block does rather look like a cloud.

This Summer I have also discovered Pinterest in a big way. I'm still working it out but you can check out my boards from the logo on the right. It's a great way to store favourite pics and links from the internet. I started off with one and now I have  eight boards!
