Let's start with the cupcakes, shall we? This block sounds soooo yummy, and it looks pretty delicious, too. What do you think?
I found this block in the newest addition to my ever growing library of sewing and quilting books - Pretty in Patchwork: Doll Quilts. These "cupcakes" are designed by Malka Dubravsky. It's not an easy block, lots of Y seams and fussing around, but I love the final result. I used some of my all time favorite fabrics - Hope Valley and Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt, as well as Essex Linen in black for the background. It took me quite by surprise to see how this black linen looks so brownish when paired with Denyse's fabrics.
This flying geese block is just one of the two I need to make for my Trust Circle of do. Good Stitches bee this month. I did not follow any specific pattern, I was just making it up as I went. I keep thinking it looks like some very upside down Christmas tree?!?!
My poor HSTs are very neglected these days, so no real progress to show for. I am hoping to get my HST mojo back this week, we'll see.
Oh, have you heard? Let's get acquainted blog hop started yesterday. I'm so excited, it's all about getting to know some of the newer quilty bloggers and they'll each share a project, too. How fun!
Wishing you all a gorgeous and creative day, Svetlana.
