On target!!

I had set myself the target of finishing the left side triangles by the end of May - so here are the rest!!!
They are all joined together in a row waiting to be attached to the centre square.
Only the bottom row to go now - hopefully by the end of June!!

Triangles, triangles everywhere!!!

On a roll now with my triangles - half way through the left side now!! Really getting the hang of paper piecing now which makes the job so much quicker.

Around the world update

Things have started to slow down with this Around The World Quilt Bee II.
It is very frustrating as some blocks have stalled completely while others are whizzing around the world and not far from returning home....

This lovely quilt is for Lynne, who asked that her blocks all stay within the same colour family. Her starter block had the frog face in the centre, so I decided to play on that with the toes in the bottom sections!!

Diane's quilt is chasing the stars, so I decided to try the Lone Star paper pieced block. It was fun to make and I love all her blocks together. It will be an awesome quilt!!

Well..............as if I have not enough sewing projects on the go, I couldn't resist joining in this one!!!
Having learnt the art of paper piecing in the process of doing my Dear Jane quilt, I thought it would be fun to try paper piecing something different! On Flickr, I was invited to join in the 'Dr.Who.Along' Each 2 weeks a paper pieced 'Dr Who' themed block pattern is posted and everyone involved makes their version and uploads a photo to share with the group. (Link to it on the button on right hand side of my blog) Here is the first block - Tardis.
Was fun to make!!!
