This month is flying by and for once I don't mind, as fast approaching is the Fat Quarterly sewing retreat in London and I can't wait!!!! Thanks to a weekend of nights, I had two kidlet/work free days to indulge in sewing ( I probably should have done some housework as well...), this was good for my WIPS.
Tumbling little apples quilt for Siblings Together:
All this needs now is the label on the back which I will pick up at the FQ retreat in two weeks. There is loads of information on the Siblings Together charity on the Flickr page.
I used a couple of Stoery book prints for this quilt and some Kona white to make a super quick strip quilt. This is with my sewing buddy who I
bribed persuaded to hand sew the binding down for me ;-) (She likes to hand sew, I don't!!)
Made with the Keyka Lou pattern and some pretty Summersville.
I thought that the Tiny bag from Jeni's pattern would make perfect gift bags for the magnets. I used the underground print and the Crown prints as it will be the Jubilee weekend in London when the retreat is on. I am now thinking that I should have made a set of these for myself!

For those who are wondering where the pretty ribbon went, they looked crap as the ties. I gave them to my sewing buddy as part bribe to get her to sew the binding on my baby quilt ;-)
Circle cushions - no progress.
Granny runner - have changed my mind on the Pezzy binding and am going with some Summersville instead. This is today's sewing project, if I don't get distracted.
Half moon Modern quilt - Is on the Long arm as I type - getting very excited about getting this back!
In the pipeline:
Hand stitched class with Rachel from Stitched in Colour - starts in June.
Linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday.
