More FWQ blocks

I'm just loving our taste of Summer at the moment.  Temperatures in the 30's; so unusual for us in UK, but it is taking a toll on the sewing front.  It just slows everything down and I'm finding I'm making more mistakes, like sewing seams together inside out.  I sew my seams for these blocks using a 1.5 stitch length so the ends don't come unravelled, but it means I have to unpick very, very carefully using a pin one stitch at a time.  I've managed to make five blocks this week, and nothing else.

#21  Contrary Wife

#25 - Cups and Saucers

#26 - Cut Glass Dish

#31 - Evening Star

#34 - Flock

Now my daughter has broken up from school for the summer I won't be looking after Molly all the time, so I have high hopes of getting more done now.


  1. Gorgeous. Can't wait to see more.

  2. Lovely fabric choices! They all look great but evening star is my fave!

  3. This is going to look just awesome when it is all done. Super colours and great stitching, well done!
