FAL 2016 Q2

........ Well Q1 was a spectacular fail! I got no finishes and didn't even make the linky party .....
Bad budsmam. Why? Ach just my normal nervous breakdown at worky stuff! Plus sore shoulder plus lurgy, poor poor budsmam!
Never mind we are moving with a purpose and have a wee dram of drambuie to motivate us :-)

So, I'm rolling over - EVERYTHING!!
Yep the whole jing bang as we say in Scotland!
In no particular order:
Silk quilt

Och you poor wee silk quilt, one day pet one day you will be done, just not today ...

Liberty quilt
I want to use up my Liberty stash (don't judge me ...) in the medallion quilt by Susan Briscoe which was in the Today's Quilter supplement.

How awesome would that be!!!

Flipping flowers
Flippity flip, I don't need to do much to this one either ....
Tula pink butterfly
For goodness sake this only needs to go to the longarmer then get bound!
Again just pull you finger out budsmam!
As above

Jen Kingwell BOM with Zandra Rhodes fabrics
Hmmm might be difficult since the BOM won't finish till September ... I can do this, I have no pictures though

Sew together bag for my lovely friend Marshall
Awww bless, Marshall phoned me and I almost cried at hearing a friendly voice. She is so sweet and bought me these fabrics last year, she deserves a sew together bag.

Morrocan quilt
I have this daft idea of doing a quilt for every holiday I go on .... Well holiday abroad that is, I can't see me making a Skegness quilt, but you never know! I got these fabrics in America last year. They remind me so much of the tiles and vibrant colours and richness of our Morrocan holidays. Of course I have to choose a pattern from the Kaffe fassett quilts in Morocco book!

Civil war quilt
Right again another holiday quilt! This time to remind me of America and my fab trip there last year. This one is scheduled in for our annual quilt retreat to Cullen.

Is that enough??
Nooooo it's not enough! ffs how could I forget my lonestar quilt? I am loving this baby!
Right that's enough, budsmam over and out.
Linking up!


  1. Your projects are wonderful! Here's to a more productive quarter! We will make progress. Your silk quilt is lovely!--Terry

    1. Thank you! We will progress, I am determined on the silk quilt at the very least

  2. I hope that you have a better quarter with your health (I'm also in the bad shoulder gang!) as well as your sewing. I'm more than willing to chase you with a big stick, should you require it ;o) Good luck!

    1. Shoulders are just a blessed nuisance! Can Archie join in the chasing with a stick? 😁
