Carrying over from the Easter weekend, some fabric that has chicken and one that has some geese.The Geese have cute red bows on them and the fabric is a strong herringbone weave as against the others that are canvas. I am thinking, a bag with a red lining would compliment this fabric well. Red actually would work well as a lining for all these, with the right amount of contrast.

I just love text print…wondering what I could make from these – one has a ‘home’ theme and the other ‘Valentines’

Fabric gifts from friends and family are the best gifts for a quilter ๐Ÿ™‚

Hubby went traveling and got home some Quilt fabric as gift. For a quilter what could be a better gift than coordinated fabric. These would make lovely coffee table runners or coasters or maybe just plain table mats.

Love the coordinated colours and print. There are dozens more…stay tuned to see them over the next few Sundays ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the sixth week of the Garden Snail Quilt Snail Paced Slow-along Sew-along Gnomengel and thankfully I have been able to catch up. Next week, there is travel planned on my itinerary so there could be a break again. But so far so good…all 6 snails are ready in 6 rainbow colours!
One remains yet!

indigo-snail

Learning from 1&2: The grey is too light and the snail body doesn’t stand out against the white backdrop.

blue-snail

green-snail

Learning from 2&3: The grey is fine and stands out against the white background but the material is polyster. Firstly, its difficult to sew and then it shrinks under and iron!

yellow-snail

orange-snail

These are better but the wonky blocks need to improve.
