weekend whirl !

and just like that I've got back into sewing - I had a bit of a lull towards the end of the year but I'm getting back into it and the weekend went by in a whirl !

I think I tried to work on all the projects this weekend :)

a couple of  pillows for mum and dad - a teal and blue zig zag and an orange, pink, and yellow jacks on six !

the last of the cut Whirlygig blocks made up - I need to cut the rest of the teeny blocks to make the rest of the whirlygig blocks.

and I'm up to date with my scrappy nine blocks - Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts has all the details of this sew along that she did a few years ago on her blog !


I also started a charm pack UFO quilt from a few years ago - my idea at the time was to make some quick charm quilts so I could practice my free motion quilting - well I do have one quilt finished but another still sitting in the cupboard waiting to be quilted.

The charms are from Kate Spain's Serenade collection and I've done up a half square triangle design in EQ7 - I'm calling it Serenade Crossing ! Just a few more HSTs to make and I'll be able to sew the top together.

Hope your weekend was fun too !!


  1. My goodness Leanne! That is a whirlwind of sewing indeed! I love those little whirligigs! All the projects look great!
