Benjamin Biggs Block 4 and partial Block 5

I have been sidetracked from quilt making a bit lately.  I have been kept very busy by our German Shepherd puppy!  She has so much energy and needs to be walked and played with at least twice a day!  I have lost several kilos without even trying! I have also been taking her to puppy classes...she graduated last week, lol.

I have managed to finish Block 4 of BB and am on my way to completing Block 5 of BB, all machine applique.  I am really getting the hang of the machine applique and love the quick results....such a 21st century girl!

I took a close up trying to show the machine applique, you may be able to enlarge it, I am not sure.

Block 5 still needs the corner buds and leaves.

I have also been hand stitching my Whig Rose blocks that I have been picking up now and again since I started.

I am making 9 blocks altogether and am onto my 4th. It should be a lovely quilt.

Love Entwined has been languishing on my sewing table.....I will get back to it.  The work being shown on Esther Aliu's Yahoo Group of this quilt is truly stunning.

Happy stitching,


  1. I recently discovered your blog and I love your work! Beautiful, precise and lovely colors! Applique is my fav kind of quiltwork , am working on Phebe right now, not always with great succes, but slowly getting somewhere. Love these blocks you show today!

  2. the blocks are lovely - I have heard a lot say dog walking makes them loose weight

  3. Well done on the machine applique - I am still very much a hand applique person - just not confident enough to try the machine

  4. Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you're utilizing?
    I've loaded your blog in 3 different browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?

    Cheers, I appreciate it!

  5. The Whig Rose block is very nice. I have seen that style in a quilt and the repeat does make a pretty secondary design.
