A Tick on The List!

I am hoping to get a good start on my 2nd quarter finish-along list, with the fq retreat in June I know time will fly!

First off I wanted to make more of these for Trudi's Siblings Together group quilt:


So here are 3 more! First Tick yeahy! These are already with Mr postie on their way to Trudi.


Then I set about another item on the list, turning this into quilts for Siblings Together.


I got to this, 4" random strips of print


then this, strips with random widths of white solid between them, 2 left to join....


then this happened! Oh dear I seem to have caught this affliction from Susan!


But I did get some amazing post last week whilst I was away. I spent my $25 gift certificate at The Intrepid Thread, my win in the Sew Happy Geek QAL. I am really pleased with my parcel, it was very hard to choose though, Julie has some great fabrics!


My lovely fuglies arrived from Annabella too:


And I had forgotten about these! A while back I ordered a couple of screen-printed FQ's from See Kate Sew, the colours are hard to make out here but there is a Mint and a Cantaloupe. I just have to think of something to make with them now!



I am off to hunt down some suitable pale coloured thread to finish the quilt top with!
