Finishing off stuff!!!!

I am juggling quite a few quilt ideas at the moment, mainly in my head mind you!!!! 
Really,  really want to start the Marcelle Medallion Quilt from my new Liberty Love book, as I have quite a few liberties left over still from another project.    However, I have decided to be v. sensible & finish off a few things first before I start anything new.

So I got super busy !!
I completed this months MM bee blocks,
 "Trees Please"  for Karyn.....

and Curved Petal Pod for Mel.....

then I layered up my Charm Squares Liberty Quilt again.   (I had actually done this earlier, but, and I can't now remember why, I decided to change the backing fabric!!) Anyway, now it's already for some machine quilting.......

and then, with still some time to spare, I settled down to make a few more  Churn Dash blocks.......

I'm trying to keep it all low volume, and am finding the challenge to not have quite the usual contrast between block & background alot of fun.  After seaching, I found a few special feedsack pieces that I had purchased ages ago, and will include some of them in too.

All in all, a good days work!!  So now can I start something new?!?!??!?!?

    1. glad you like it- I checked out my 5,500 Quilt Block Designs book, but they all seemed to fill up the whole block, with hardly any negative space!!! L

  2. I'm so tempted to try the Marcelle Medallion - or maybe I should just watch you make yours??

    1. I can photocopy the pattern for you?!?!?!?!? L
