Lines and circles

Australasian Bee Block for Kellie of Marmys on Flickr- quilt as you go - Kellie provided the 10 inch batting, white thread and colourful scraps which I sewed up a treat - if I may say so myself!!

It was surprisingly easy and a Great Idea!!
Not exactly sure how the backing is attached to the finished quilt top - but will be looking out keenly.

I chose all the circle fabrics:

Little g-nome!

Some Sunday afternoon spur-of-the-moment sewing - AMH's voile - so soft, buttery, silky, sweet
Wore it to work the next day!

(I felt a little bit special)

(Edit:  Judy did contact me about this issue and explained that I needed to use a proper Drunkard's Path Template, which allows for seam allowance difficulties - free hand cutting will produce this problem!
More gadgets to buy  - 'sigh' - if anyone has one they don't need or use - let me know!  Happy to do some swapping!

Love the scarf!!
I have a rather large drunkards path template that, while I don't want to part with it permanently, I'd be happy to lend it to you for a while.
Email me and let me know what part of town you're in!!
