Block 3 Plus a Bit More

Block 3 in Splendid Sampler is finished. I think the hearts are so sweet. This design is by Melissa Corry.
It's really nice to be using those little bits of favourite fabrics. I am quite pleased at how the 3 blocks look together. I  think I am getting a little braver as I go along.
You will be pleased to know that HEXIE UFO now has a new name. It took me a little while but I decided on "Cherries and Chocolat " Lots of pieces of Moda fabrics Chocolat and Double Chocolat were used in the hexies and quilt and...well because there are "cherries"! I am really happy with how it has turned out...all the borders are on...
I think it works ok.
I even got the binding ready because it is not going back in the drawer!!!!!
On a different note. I said if my Scratchboard workshop project turned out ok I would share it. Apparently it was a very hard subject for our first go...who knew! Anyway I am really glad I did it....Sophia!
I have to say....sorry Sophia but the little fur baby I am working on now is much more fun and even prettier lol!
Well I must get back to my pile of admin.....nice spending my little break with you.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  5. Your SS blocks look lovely all together. I made the first one then gave myself a stern talking to and put it aside. Cherries and Chocolat - a lovely name for a lovely little quilt. Definitely got those Sophia lips.

  7. A cherry ripe quilt ! Love your name for it. A very yummy quilt for sure. I still need to piece block 2 and I have cut the fabrics for block 3 of the SS . Not sure if the 2nd block of mine is too light. Love Sophia.

  18. Cherries and chocolat is looking great as are your TSS blocks. I have done no 3 but it is a bit wonky. All good practise though. You are very talented with that scratch portrait.
