Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

And Sew On BOM - March

I've been doing a BOM over with Kristy at Quiet Play called And Sew On.  We're up to block number 3, which is this little number:

This one was fun to make but I'm a little disappointed in my fabric choices.  The white didn't show up against the yellow background as well as I'd like.  In hindsight I would have used some darker fabrics for the reels but I'm happy with my cottons, although the blue wavy one looks more like ric rac than cotton!  My photography skills being what they are (which is pretty average) the yellow fabric hasn't shown up its true colour, which is a little more yellow than it shows here.  Hopefully this block will fit in well with my others so far:


  1. Oh your latest block looks fab! I like the idea of a spool of ric rac too! ;)

    I think it looks great with the other blocks - well done!

  2. Wow, Sue, those are great blocks! Love love love them! Whoop whoop!!

  3. I like that ric rac, too! All of your blocks are looking great together ! I like interesting fabrics !!


  4. What a cool BOM! I love your spools and think your white shows up just fine. Don't be so hard on yourself.

  5. I love the fabrics you used for the cottons, well done :o) I came over from Whoop Whoop.

  6. I really like your blues and greens together! Very pretty combination!


Thank you for visiting my blog today. I'd love to hear any comments you'd like to make!
