Back into my thousand-projects groove (and a link party)

With the more consistent use of my daily planner, I can keep up with the many projects I like to work on!

  11. 2017 Pantone Quilt Challenge: entries will be open from May 19 to May 29. My piece is ready since January :)
  12. Mouse pad - the easiest project ever!! (see below)

More blocks for the 70273 Project. If you are curious to see some of the beautiful quilts made with all these blocks check out this Pinterest board!

Some blocks for the Twilter's Bee exchange (I didn't take the picture of the actual colors :) )

I am keeping up with Molli Sparkle's "The Honey Pot Bee" blocks. I am using a Disney/Cartoon theme for this project

The easiest project ever... a useful mousepad!
I just picked the fabric I wanted and glue it on a piece of corkboard! :)

Don't you love when something is beautiful and useful at the same time?? :)

Updates on old projects:
I added the applique on my piece to cover the red bleeding... then I washed the piece with Synthrapol and that helped washing away probably 80% of the red bleeding! There is still some pink shade all around, but the big spots are either covered or gone, so I am happy about the final result!

A while ago I made the piece below for a Project QUILTING challenge. It was not completed because the black areas next to the rainbow were empty as I was waiting for the right inspiration...
Which came last week!

So let me introduce the first piece I will submit to the Threads of Resistance exhibit: IMAGINE...

I have to write up the artist's statement, but I am really happy with the final look of this piece!!!

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!


  1. Spot on - every step does count!

  2. Hi Alida, Imagine is the perfect quote for that piece. It looks great!


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