Vignette Progress

Vignette Mystery Quilt

I have spent the last couple of nights working on this project as
I set myself a task of trying to get up to date before the next issue comes out
on the 1st September ..... I made it!

I am now officially up to date :o)

I still do not like needle turn appliqué :(
I am thinking that I need to keep my eyes out for a class
and get some one on one tips.

I had the opportunity to talk with Leanne at Urban stitches last month about how she
is thinking about finishing off the quilt. It is great to pick a designers brain :) 
I like where she is going but I thought I might try / do something a little different to 
what Leanne is thinking/planning for the bird corners 
so what better excuse to turn on my sewing machine for the first time in this house
and turn my loose blocks (well the first three rows) into this. 

This is the best that I could do in the kitchen standing on a chair (above) but 
Glenn is a little taller than me so he can get a better overhead shot (below).

Now to go work on these corners and finish setting up my space.
Hope you are having a great Saturday.
