Spiderweb Blocks ~ done!

Gosh, how I loved making these! They are now sewn together and on their way to Sara for the Spiderweb Block Swap. Mostly from my scrap bags, but I did add in some from my charm stack. I really think you can't go wrong with spiderwebs. I'd like to make a quilt to showing all my fave fabric lines, ie have a spiderweb of Wonderland, Freshcut, Kaffe, etc etc. You'd need to keep track on paper of which triangles went where, totally doable. It could be a memento quilt of all the quilts you've made. Mmmm, I really like this idea, it would be a long term project in my

cheerio for now

Lots on the go!

I seem to have a lot of fingers in a lot of pies at present. It's not really bothering me, but I wonder if it should? I kinda like having several (okay, 6) projects in progress. No, their not on the wip shelf, they are actually ALL being worked on at once! Well, no, not literally!

Pork Chop Swap Hexagons
Made from the 5" charms, received from the gals in the Flickr ORBC group.

Ah! My DQS9 inspiration mosaic for my partner.
I've an idea on paper, and fabrics pulled for the one I'm making for my partner.
But no sneak peeks, just yet.

Bee Crazy Block for Curtinqueen.
I'm working on an adaption of this, no sneak peeks for this just yet either.

This is my first Asterisk block. This one is only 3.5", I'm hoping we'll be doing a swap of these on the Itty Bitty Block Swap Flickr group. Can you imagine receiving 12 or 15 of these little beauties from all over the world? I get excited when I think about it.

But, for now I'm making bigger Asterisks for a Quilt along. I'm starting with 7" squares, all tone on tone, in mauve's~purples~amber's~oranges~greens~blues. The strips are 5 different shades of cool grey. I've only done 2 so far, so will post pictures when I've done at least 9.

Off to watch 'Little Dorrit' on the ABC now. Love a good period drama me, especially one I'm not familiar with.

Cheerio for now, be back soon!
