Blocks Galore!

Despite my increasing waddling and feeling like a tank (looking like one too!!!!) and quilting in 23 degrees heat, I have managed to get down to some serious block making!

I found this QAL via Lily's Quilts and here are my first 2 blocks for it with a great Flickr tute from Badskirt Amy:

Aren't they cute? and what's more: I am using scraps which for me is a really big deal (must start emptying out my overflowing scaps containers!!!!). And altogether now:

I have also been making a quilt for my adorable nephew (finally!!!) using a great pattern from Jaybird Quilts called Unwind. I have been waiting for a long time for a pattern that would suit him...and I LOVE this. I am making him a lap size quilt but got so carried away that I have also cut a baby size quilt from the same fabrics at the same time!!!

Again, the fabrics have all come from my stash minus the solid black and they are mainly Timeless Treasures (the psychedelic owls) with Momo, Moda, Kona etc all thrown in for good measure!!!
Aren't they great????

And as I am doing this post, I am also designing my own block for another quilt that I am planning to enter in a competition!!!

Somewhere amongst all this activity I also have to find time to give birth!!!! ehhhhh, something tells me that the baby will remind me of that date when she has chosen it!!!!! ;-)
