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 - Last Block - Yay!

Well this month has been very hectic with all my hospital visiting but there is light at the end of the tunnel.  My father-in-law is (barring unforeseen circumstances) being transferred to Strathalbyn Rehab tomorrow and that means my mother-in-law can go home to Murray Bridge and travel to visit him herself.  I'm not sure who's happier to be moving, him or Mum!  She's really looking forward to sleeping in her own bed tomorrow night that's for sure!

I did manage to work on my last And Sew On block last week but didn't quite finish it so I was very happy to have a small window of opportunity this morning before we went to the hospital for the last time to whip up the last two pieces and put the whole thing together.

Aside from a minor blunder where I ended up with my window under my sewing machine instead of above it (thank goodness for my trusty unpicker) it went together fairly easily as most of the tricky stuff was in making the smaller segments.

I didn't really have any fabric I liked for a window scene so I made my window into a shelf unit instead.  I just need to add a needle to my sewing machine and then its done.  Now to think about how I'm going to join all my blocks together to come up with a finished wallhanging!

Thanks for visiting my blog today,


  1. I'm so happy for your FiL!
    Your sewing room block looks great, the shelf is a nice one!

  2. What a sweet block! The details are great.

  3. It looks so fab! Love the idea of the shelf above instead of the window - very clever!

  4. I love your block! Very cute!

  5. I love these blocks - better go & get it now before I forget. great news about your FIL.

  6. Very cute and fun! I love your shelf idea, too!


  7. I love the shelf, If I did my sewing room, my window looks out to a fence,so a shelf would be more interesting to look at :)

  8. It is gorgeous and I love your happy looking little picture frames the best! Great job.

  9. I've always loved your blues! I need to get going on my last block!
