Final Fling

Well, at least for a few weeks as it's just a few days now before I disappear off to hospital in search of a new knee , but before I go I've a couple of things to share with you !

Firstly, a new member for the UFO club :-)

From a pattern in APQ April 2011, another scrappy quilt, but rather a pretty one I think. A couple of first for me as I've not made an on point setting quilt before and I certainly have never sewn so many Flying Geese !!  I have a feeling that this might just jump to the top of the 'to quilt' list. 

We all know that there are lots of new things to be learnt from wandering around Blog land, and this little quilt is certainly something different, and I love it !

Just 16 1/2 inches square, it's from Vicki's  tutorial for her   Whirly Twirly Dresden block .  I went with the black background , but go and have a look at the  different colour variations.

Lastly, I saw this very simple, very quick but very useful pouch on Connie's blog, and followed the link to this blog for the tutorial.  Don't you just love following links and finding lots of treasures ?

I had a practice piece of FMQ lying around, which was only enough for one , but I am sure it won't be the only one to be made.

So - that's me for a little while, time to cover up the machines, switch everything off and go pack my bag!  See you soon!!
