I shared this fabric box made with Syndrome block earlier this week in this post.
But seriously, how can I not repost this fun sequence of picture I took of my sewing budding using the scraps box as new place to hide?? She is too cute, sorry for reposting!! ;)
The variation of week 7 of Project of Doom 2015 was to cool to miss! So I had fun making this block with scraps of green for the plant, and fun prints for the book. The block will go to Jennifer for Linus.

Another block, designed by Jennifer, is my last block for my wall hanging Tea towel challenge/PPV!!
Now only two pieced border are missing and then it will be done!!

The top for my mini for the Color of the Year challenge is done. Cannot share yet, but this will be my March project for a Lovely Year of Finishes.
Sneak peek.

Speaking about charity quilts, I am working on collecting animal blocks and while I was struggling finding patterns that I liked, a light bulb turned on in my brain: many Disney/Cartoon characters are animals and FiS is full of those patterns!! DUH :)
In my defense I should say that I consider cartoon characters just people of different sizes and colors ;) so that's why I didn't realize I could use some patterns from FiS for my animal quilts ;)
Anyway... these are the first two I picked: a fish (YES, I know!!! she is not just a fish!!! she is Dory!!) and a sheep (because the year of the sheep just started) :)

As usual, I was allowed to use only one main fabric and the rest had to be from my scraps bin... which is why the green background is variegated and pieced :) but it worked out great I think!!
And finally a new block for my SK project is ready.
Opening line of "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon",
You can find the pattern on my The SK Project page.
And now what are YOU going to link?


  1. Such lovely work! Quilt Art Designs has been having a mystery Monday pattern. So far they have been a giraffe and a likeness

  2. I love the Syndrome box. I have a very similar helper who doesn't quite understand that every space is not his to rule.

  3. What a cutie your sewing buddy is! :) That looks like a tiny log cabin. Nice work.


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