Quite a catch up! I can't believe it's July and the last time I posted was January! My Mother had a fall which took months to get over and I was having to do everything for her which put my quilting very much on the back burner. When she finally started to really recover she tore a muscle in her back which put her out of action for another couple of months. We are all back to normal now with Mum being a lot more careful about where she walks and how she does things, I'm very pleased to say!!

So here is what I've been up to, a little bit of Whig's Rose and BB blocks 13 and 16. The blocks in between are in various states of prep.


Whigs Rose (all hand appliqued)

Ben Biggs Block 13  (All BB blocks are machine appliqued with cotton thread that matches as closely to the applique pieces as possible)

Ben Biggs Block 16


Some of the BB blocks laid out to get a feel for what it will be like when finished ( use your imagination!!)


....and a few more...

So I will say goodbye and go back to prepping and catching up on my BB blocks.

Happy stitching,
Rowena

  6. Your BB blocks are lovely. I hope to start soon making some of them. Have you used different background fabrics for your blocks or is it the camera and light that makes them look different. Looking great!
