Wednesday Catch Up

The middle of the week rolls around again and I've been getting some sewing done, thanks to a trip to Midsomer Quilting (for some fabric) on Saturday and a Sew Thankful Sunday post on The Crafty Quilter (for some wonderful Christmas shares).  The project I jumped on is Merry and Bright, designed and hosted by Jen Daly Quilts.  Great tutorials every other day and lovely results.

Day 1 = 7   Pinwheels

 Day 2 = 7  Ornaments

Day 3 = 6 Trees

Day 4 =  6 Gifts

Friday Finishes...

A couple of finishes, both done before I traveled from Canada to England.  The first one was to test the December 'Wanderlust' pattern for Janeen at Quilt Art Designs.  I had no problem agreeing to do the CN Tower block :)   Paper Piecing is still a very time consuming project for me, I enjoy doing them, but they sure don't clip along at a pace.  There are a lot of start/stop moments.  Because of that, I only managed to get two of the 12 months done for Wanderlust... January and December, both are now wall hangings left at home.  I have the rest saved and hope to get to them... but you know how things go in the quilting world, there is always a 'gotta do' around the corner.
No pictures of the CN Tower hanging on the wall... I forgot to take one before leaving :)

The second finish is a small table topper I made and brought with me.  I followed a pattern in one of the magazines I have at home... of course I forget which one and didn't bring it with me.  I wasn't sure about the size so was well pleased that it ended up being perfect for the table on this side of the pond.
