Catching up

I can't believe we are half way though March already, where has this year gone.  While we wait here in North Queensland for two cyclones (one potential - not named yet as of this post), to cross the coast, I am busy behind the scenes working on two projects for for the Spring offerings.  I have finished but can't show you yet my work, as that would ruin the surprise.

I have also been busy working on my blocks for more Round Robins this year, two of which are already in full swing.  Those two are with Southern Cross Crazies, my Australian Yahoo crazy quilting group.  We are working on two RR's, one is a needle case and the other is a DYOB.  I have finished this months work already and am ready to post along with the next two RR's about to start.  Funny enough that they both have the same name, Gardens and Flowers except one is a Traditional RR (one 12 inch block) and the other is a DYOB with 6 6 inch squares.  Photo's please you ask....

My Needle case for SSC

My work on Glenda's needle case (SSC)

My blocks for the DYOB (SSC) We have seven participants, so I choose to add 8 blocks.

My work on Alison's DYOB (SSC) her theme is Under the sea..... Loved working with these colours...

My Traditional Gardens and Flowers 12 inch Block, for my curtains in my craft room...

And my blocks for the Garden and Flowers DYOB - yes they are the same or similar to the others, that's because they are from a set of 20 blocks.

Here is the full set.
I'm considering making a single quilt for my niece for her 21st.
Time for more stitch.... gonna finish my CQJP block 6.

some lovely pieces here, the lace piece has so many pretty pieces on it. Underwater scene has lots to see and admire and the crazy blocks will look great when complete
