L.E Update and New Quilts !

It's been nearly two weeks since i last posted. I have been sick with what i thought was glandular fever, but i think it was just some chesty virus. I am feeling alot better now though hence the new post !   :)

I appliqued the gorgeous little petal flowers on the L.E quilt. They were Hard !
To get those points to all line up was maddening. I managed to achieve a level of acceptability and am now moving on to piecing the borders English Style.

Its already looking so pretty, i cant wait to add those lovely vases full of blooms!
Am keeping the border scrappy and going with the light dark contrast.
 I'm really loving this quilt and cant wait till the 15th :)

Alot of ladies are doing the Mrs Beasley's Sampler. It is a hard one to resist so i bought a copy of Vignette number 10 and away we went.

Leanne's version is lovely
 I love embroidery and i do have a few quilts with predominantly embroidered blocks. However i love applique more, lol, and decided to try my hand at this pattern substituting the embroidered bits for applique.

Block 1 complete, all sewn together.

Moving on.....

It is my birthday on the 21st of this month and my lovely, caring parents bought me 3 new patterns !!!


Worthing downs is an inspired take on the sundial coverlet by Megan Carroll

Isnt it amazing looking. I cant wait to start this one.
Miss Matty's Parlour is another beauty inspired by the Frederica Josephsons quilt, also by Megan Carroll.

I have made a start on the centre of this one (naughty aren't i )

As soon as i can find some suitable background fabric i think i might add a block or two of the brides quilt to my growing to do list as well.

I finally finished off the Sunburst Star block from my Daughters Morrell Quilt.
This one was hard and I'm not overly happy with the outer points, but too bad I'm not redoing this one  :)

Thats it from me.
Keep on Stitching,


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! You are so tempting me with all those new patterns. Lucky you! I really like Miss Matty's Parlour and Worthing Downs.

  2. Glad you are feeling better. Your LE is looking so gorgeous! The stripe for the triangles is inspired, looks fabulous. Your fussy cut circles are lovely as is every other fabric choice you have added. The new patterns look as though you will be very busy! What a lucky daughter you have , the Morrell quilt is not for the faint hearted!

  3. You do beautiful work. I love your fabric choices and the whimsical feel of your projects :)

  4. I have just stumbled upon your much gorgeous stitching and appliqué. Your LE is coming along beautifully.

  5. Your applique work is gorgeous.

  6. You LE is looking BEAUTIFUL! I hope mine comes out half as nice.

  7. Such beautiful work. I just found your blog but sadly could not see a way to follow you - seems like the space was blank under the word followers. :( Anyway, I love everything you do and will be following your progress on LE as I work on mine. Maybe you will even get me motivated to start my Phebe!

  12. Wow, you are working on some gorgeous projects!

  13. Love all of your projects, the striped fabric for the triangles in LE is brilliant. Love your interpretation of Mrs Beasley's Sampler with the appliqué - trying to resist this one and you are making it too tempting. Your Morrell block looks great, I chickened out of doing that block.

  14. What wonderful parents you have, to give you such wonderful patterns.
    Will you be making them at the same time you are working on the LE??
    I like the triangle fabric!
