Over the past few weeks I have been doing some catch up sewing on my P48Quilt Blocks in between doing some secret Christmas sewing for two Christmas swaps.
This is Block 22, this block took me 9 hours of sewing, unpicking and sewing and that's not counting the cutting out as I had precut a lot of the blocks waiting for spare time to sew them. I didn't enjoy making this block however I very happy with the completed block.

                                                                         Block 23

Block 24, this one was very challenging and also took me a long time to complete, I needed to watch a tutorial (a couple of times ) to learn how to sew the white pieces into the block......

Block 25, block piecing and some hand applique.

                                                                             Block 26

                                                                           Block 27

Block 28, this is a needle turn applique block which took me quite a few hours to complete, there are 3 petals to each flower. My fingers were cramped at completion.

                                                                        Block 29

Block 30, this took me a little bit of time, I'm not real happy with this block but I'm not doing it again.

Block 33, I enjoyed doing this block. Yes you read correctly, I am missing blocks 31 and 32 which I still need to do.

Block 34, this is another needle turn applique block as well, I really suck at it, this block took me several hours to applique and if you look closely I only have a few of the leaf ends in points.  I know you will be shuddering when looking at this Michelle. It's my first ever attempt at needle turn applique and I looked at a LOT of tutorials first but I'm still bad at it.  I am NOT including this block into the quilt however I will hang onto it.  I would like to do more needle point applique (maybe I need a few lessons from a professional).  I can look at this in the future to see how far I'm come - fingers crossed anyway.....

Block 35...... I still have to catch up from here to block 41 which came out last Friday.

I hope you're all enjoying the weekend and the weather - looks like we're into summer now.



  1. So many gorgeous blocks...well done

  2. I think your applique is fine, yo are being hard on yourself, not every leaf has to be pointy on the end! You have made many beautiful blocks there.



Happy Monday everyone, it's now 72 days till I depart Australia for my long awaited trip to Japan. Last week I made more gifts to t...
