Some new projects

I had to finish some projects to be on time for my swaps and I'm still not up to date, grrrrrr, bad time managment, get to get more organized next time.

So here you see my little quilt fot the ALQS2, it's almost done, hope to do the quilting and binding tonight. The actual size is about 16" x 19,5" and the thumblers height 1,25", so you can imagine the tiny tiny applique pieces for the bees, pretty ticky.
It's all done in japanese fabrics, that's why I call it "bees in a japanese garden".

And don't worry, the blue marker lines on the bees will disappear, watersoluble pen.



Below you can see a close-up of my little bees, aren't they cute?



And now something for the season, it's a little wall hanging based on a picture from Art to Heart.
I made this for a friend, but I think I need one too.

My last border for the Spring Fling RR

I participate in the second edition of the Spring Fling RR and I like it a lot, it stimulates my creativity and up to now I would have loved to keep all of those I worked on.

But I can tell you, this last border was quite thrilling, when I first saw the block that was sent to me I had no idea, so much empty space to fill, gosh.

Then I made different plans and decided to add some applique to fill up these spaces. I created the design myself and I think it matches perfectly with the rest of the quilt.

It is very hard to take a pic without revealing too much, ;o)))))).


Still have to wash the piece to get ridd of all those watersoluble marking lines, but at least you can have an idea.





And many thanks to Margaret for organizing this, I promise you to join for the next one, you're doing an amazing job.

Maybe you wanna see

Hi there, I just thought that I need to show you my latest dear Jane blocks.
Up to now I made 51 blocks, that makes just 118 more to do to finish the center.

I didn't use any of the fabrics twice, but maybe I have to reuse my fabrics for the triangles, that's why I decided to create these only when most of the center blocks are done, all depends on my fabric stash.

I think I'll love it once finished, it's so colorful, it will be so me.


And now to the pic
