what to get up to on a poxy day....

Well, being housebound and crook is NOT my idea of fun... so if a girlie cannot go out and spread her poxy germs, well, what is a girl to do?
so I got up to date with my Block of the Week from Crazy Mom Quilts blog.. I am happy with how they turned out, the centre seam matches! woohoo.. Triangles are NOT my favourite thing whilst quilting so for me to be happy first time around is 'happy dance time'.. (imagine a fat blonde tart doing a irish jig and thats about what my happy dance looks like).. I will have to add some more colours to the next block, as it is looking a tad purple.. and I must admit, purple is NOT my favourite colour..

I also signed up for a mystery quilt through Quiltville, and also the quiltville chat group, and here are my 100 rail fence blocks.. I am up to step 2 now, I have cut it out, but not sure what to use for a light.. you are supposed to use a light colour for it, and only 3 colours in total.. but I want this to be super duper scrappy, so I might use a white on white fabric (adding an extra colour) and the accent colour is supposed to be dark, but seeing though 30's are my favourite 99.9% seem to have similar colour value.. so my quilt wont have a 'zinger' in it, but my accent colour will be the green you can see in the 100 rail fence blocks I whipped up this afternoon during nanna naps and lay downs cause I felt woozy..

Now onto step 2, and I'll post a pic of those when they are done, will take me a couple of days to get them done, and also, the Crazy Mom Quilts block of the week will be up by Tuesday (our time in Australia) so that will keep me and my pox germs busy...


Till next time...

Hello you fat blonde tart, I am so glad that you are feeling even a teensy bit better - I'm thinking of you.

Well poxy fat blonde chick - you sound just like my kind of friend! I do hope you are feeling 100% soon. It's freezing cold here so I'm just off to turn the heating up - or do a bit of housework to warm up - which one do you recommend????? Lucy xxx

At least you can always sew when you are sick. SOmetimes it is a wrong move as you just make too many silly mistakes from not thinking but at other times it makes you feel great to still be able to be productive. I love the 30's idea - I just LOVE 30's!!!

Tracy said...

I love the color scheme. I too love 30s fabric and thought a long time about how to do the mystery in them. I went with fall, and will have to live vicariously through your beautiful quilt!

I love your 30s repro blocks..I may have to make another mystery quilt in 30s fabrics.

Your rails are adorable, I love it in 30's! I have a few in mine also, I can't wait to see how yours turns out.

Tracy said...

How are you feeling? Better I hope!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog earlier.
Your 30s version of the mystery is going to look soooo pretty.
Hope you're soon feeling much better - at least you can utilise the time to sew a little and you can always do most of your shopping online :)

I like your blocks! I have to admit purple is not my favorite color either. :)
