Woops missed these!

I was going through my Instagram feed this morning and saw something
exciting (more on that soon) and then realised that I hadn't shared
some things with you. Woops, lets correct that right now.
This one arrived Christmas Eve so I've made two blocks again
(I have been back and repressed that edge seam open so it sits flat now)

I have also done a little more work on my Lancaster Quilt.
I have played with the placement of the flowers to try and get some balance.

Then pinned them near where I want them and have started to applique them on.
I think I am half way around with the large centre of the flower and only 1 flower
completed. If this quilt doesn't get me any better at Needle Turn applique nothing will.
Yesterday I started on my first project for the 2013 Stitch-along and
being that my TTS and Red Home books are still in transit I decided
to make the Shoe Bag from Some Kind of Wonderful.  Here it is, all finished.
Now, what was it on Instagram that I saw.
Let me share :o)
The Fat Quarter Shop have just released their 6th Designer Mystery BOM
It is featuring the Avalon Collection by Fig Tree Quilts

You all know that I love Bonnie and Camille Fabric ranges but next in line
 seems to be almost anything by Fig Tree Quilts. So feminine.
If you are interested the link is above. Reserve your spot now, I did! :o)
Have a great day, stay cool,
it's going to be a +40deg day here
 and the air conditioner is already on.
hugs, Sharon
