I joined the Project 48 Quilt Blocks Group again this year, I am loving the blocks for 2017.

This year I decided to use a Fat Quarter collection, I am using Thimbleberries "Shades Apart" by RJR Fabrics.  I purchases this fabric several years ago from The Fat Quarter Shop. There are 56 pieces in the collection so there will be plenty for the 48 blocks.

                                        BLOCK 1, is to look like the sky, ocean and the beach.

                                                       BLOCK 2, a house of love

                                               BLOCK 3, quite obviously a LOVE block

                            BLOCK 4, a row of little houses, I really enjoyed this lovely little block.

                                  BLOCK 5, a gorgeous checkerboard in the middle, it looks
                                          a little fiddly but it wasn't and I enjoyed making it.


I'm up to date, YAY !!! A new block comes out every Friday.....

A couple of baby bibs and a toddler bib for my Great Nephew, Charlie. I love handmade bibs and hadn't made any for Charlie.  I love the colour of the fabric and I have backed them with a soft baby blue fleece fabric.  I usually put buttons and button holes on bibs however this time I used the old fashion snaps and they've worked a treat.

My niece loves the Burp Cloths I made for Charlie and recently asked me for more, I made another 2 large ones the same size as the 4 I made her when she had Charlie and 3 smaller ones. I've also washed them so they can be used as soon as received in the mail.  My niece Lisa, went back to work 3 days a week 3 weeks ago so I thought this would be a little help for her.
