Extras (because if I have tons of projects to finish I need to add some extras anyway O_o):
1. the SK project - 1 block designed

(Linking up at Let's Bee Social)

-- MOP: This week new blocks --

I quilted the top part of the quilt outlining the symbol and then doing some echo around it to make them look like lines in the sand of a zen garden

Obviously I was helped in tracing the quilting line by my special helper!
"It's a hard job, but someone has to do it" :)

"So how did I do?"

And for the first time ever, the label of this quilt is ready before the quilt!! :)
I designed this label for all my new quilts to acknowledge the great help of my special sewing assistant!
So I stitched one for my Rainbow quilt and one for my Z quilt!!
The practice for the secret event that I am organizing for next year goes on!!
The pile of coasters doubled and one xmas present is almost complete ;)
More details are going to be revealed soon, I promise :)
And I finally  completed one big big block for my Topolino quilt!
Topolino (Mickey Mouse in Italian) is also the name of the comic strip that I was reading every week when I was a kid (wiki says that "Topolino is an Italian digest-sized comic series featuring Disney comics"... that's the correct description ;) ).
Anyway this is the fonts/colors usually used in the cover of all my Topolini!

(10'' x 50'', pattern available here)

I also decided not to make all the block that I initially planned for this quilt because, let's face it, I want to have it done for THIS Xmas, not the next one :) so I will add just one more block and then start putting it together (into sections to quilt separately).
And finally I can share with you the blocks I made for my Block Swap Partner of October (Agnes). She asked for a wonky house block with the crazies fabric I had: I went pretty crazy I think ;)

And now, what are YOU going to link?? :)


  1. Oh love the wonky houses :) Your lists are dwindling :) Its a shame we dont have an extra few months before Christmas arrives ;)

  2. Love the "zen" quilt (not to mention your assistant!) I can see it's busy at your house!

  3. I really like how your symbol quilt is turning out and those labels are adorable!


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
