FNSI March

WENDY from SUGARLANE QUILTS gathered us together for a night of sewing with others across the country cyberly. 
I worked on the last of  my Wings applique blocks....
I got it finished......woohoo!
It's funny these two weren't my favourites when I drew them but I love them now....

This morning I have attached them to the centre.....
I was a bit disappointed that I haven't enough of the trellis fabric for the next border......
I can make the red spot work......and I will just have to get over it!
I thought I would use the trellis fabric for the butterflies in each corner of the next border.....hopefully tying it altogether. 
Next.....lots and lots of long hexies for the last border........whose idea was THAT!  Lol!
Thanks Wendy.....I hope you joined in.
***If you missed my previous post, I have several drawings you may wish to use for little keep your hands busy, needles flashing and your mind at peace.
I think this afternoon I shall go back and scribble between the pages of my Nature Journal....
Be kind and stay well.

Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx


  1. Lovely blocks for your Wings and I like the red dot border....
    Thank you for the stitchery patterns, I started one last night.
    Beautiful gumnut blooms. Our Red Coral tree is just blossoming...

  2. Your top (to date) looks GOrgeOus Michelle.
    Shame about the lack of fabric but I'm sure your red choice will look great too... xox

  3. your blocks are lovely and they look great all together. A pity about the trellis fabric but I know it will still look gorgeous. Crazy designer with all those elongated hexagons. Have a lovely weekend...

  4. That is so pretty, Michelle! Sometimes running out of fabric forces you to make a change you wouldn't have done otherwise, and it looks great just the same.

  5. Love your gum blossom, such a pretty colour. You are doing really well with your applique blocks, they look amazing all joined up. I like the red spot too. Have fun with the hexies.

  6. Love your quilt with the red border...
    You are so clever.
    I have printed your gorgeous stitcheries.
    You are so generous Thank you.

  7. I'm sure the red will be just fine by the time yu add all those fun hexies!!

  8. Your Wings blocks and quilt are beautiful xx

  9. Oh, your applique blocks are beautiful!!! Thank you for the previous post's stitcheries. I'll keep them in mind for one day ...
