Trying out some patchy pieces

Hi there do you feel Spring in the air......I wish!!!!
Its on my kitchen window sill though, sweet lovely daffodils.
And to make it seem even more Spring like
Pretty pinwheels & experimenting with pieces

I'm in the "process" of putting together a pinwheel quilt from my ruby charm packs,
18 down, 7 to go then its sew, sew, sew & sandwich & quilt & bind & ........phew!!!!!
Its a gettin there though, I reckon it'll be so springy lookin :D
Also another lil cushion in there, do you see it, the tiny triangle 
piecing, i've always been pretty basic with my quilting, so these are a bit of a challenge, 
nice one though!!!!

Another notebook holder...

Love these, so cute & of both worlds.
Oh my I'm off Sophie has just put a plate of home made fudge in front of me.......
I'm Ruined.....Finished.......expanding by the mouthful!!!!
Lots of love Karen xxx

  7. Love your Ruby fabrics, and your quilt is looking great! I'm appreciating the pictures of daffodils too and wishing that spring would hurry up and arrive - except when I opened the curtains this morning, we have snow :( So looks like it may be a while yet! Hope you enjoyed the fudge :) x
