Bits and Pieces

Pretty slow going again at my place thanks to a very affectionate little creature
who now loves to come on my lap and rub noses whilst I try and sew!!

So, amazing progress with Tallulah but not so much with the quilting.

I have just done a little on three projects, one of them a very, very little.

Rainbow Safari for 5yr old grandson, very simple 8" fussy cut square
surrounded by 2 and 1/2" strips - I have stacks of lovely bright Kona
jelly rolls to use for these

Began again with the kaleidoscope project
this time combining batiks and  KF collective fabrics, 2 and1/2" wide.
Just a few segments being played with on the wall

but I just had to do a little bit of matching up here and there

 and now I can't wait to get busy cutting more!

My AdHoc Improv Medallion and progress with the other
two side borders, I didn't measure these pieces just cut freehand and when I
 and had roughly the correct fit I chopped the rest off - very therapeutic.

 The light was fading so quickly when I took this,  one border wasn't sewn down and
you can see there are still plenty of dangling threads to tidy up. In fact it's not even
placed squarely on the wall - blame Tallulah! 

Hope I can make a little more time for quilting tomorrow, fingers crossed!!

That all looks fascinating, lovely black and white spots that show up the other fabrics so well, and the top one, do you have more birds or other animals for more blocks?

I like the two sided flying geese border.

WOW--lovely stuff! i like how that Medallion came together a lot; and the Rainbow Safari will be wonderful; those kaleidoscopes are looking terrific--you've been busy I think...
glad your little kitty is good company for you hugs, Julierose

Just love, love the Medallion. Something I wish I could make.

It is hard to sew with a cat on your lap, isn't it? I'm still loving your medallion - those pointy triangles are a great addition.

You're lucky Tallulah lets you sit down! I love seeing all the projects you have going. And my, the new edge to your medallion is spectacular.

Oh oh oh those kaleidoscopes! I adore them!
So much wonderful color dancing here. I love all your projects!
(Tallulah is obviously a very good helper!)

I like the new borders on the medallion quit. It was just what it needed.

Seems to me like you have actually been achieving quite a bit. Love the colour play with your kaleidoscope quilt blocks.

Julie said...

Your kaleidoscope blocks are looking frat - love all the colour in these photos.

Neat improv log cabin medallion - great colors.

Love your Kaleidoscope blocks, this is going to be colourful! And, great colours in your improv medallion! Is it more of a brown or grape in the border?
