FQS Mystery BOM block 1........

Well I got this in the middle of all “crazyness” here but the last few nights I had a play and look what I made………this is the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Designer block of the month…………block one designed by Brenda Riddle………..love the colours in this one………..block two must be nearly here……………brilliant instructions…………..

and Peg I am counting this as 1 finish............lol...............I know you wanted whole quilts etc but with the time I have had lately this may be the only thing I get done................lol...........

&&&&&

Oh and I signed up for Linda’s Bag Swap now………….yes Linda I am crazy………….but you have left us plenty of time to make it…..

&&&&&

And on the lamb front 3 going really well, 1 died and I am sure another one will……………dam temperamental things they are…………thank goodness my kids are well tuned to the life cycle so no tears just a sad report and arguing over who was going to take it away………..and I have hardly had to feed them since the kids are still home on school holidays…………just some mixing milk………..

&&&&&&

Christmas in July.................

for all those Christmas lovers Kerry has the pics on her blog of the Christmas kits...............and if you think some of this may be to hard one of the Janelle, Natalie or Kerry will be available all the time.........and there are lots of extra pics for help...........head over and check them out now............they look great...........

...take care til next time.............Chookyblue..........

  1. Bad luck about the lamb Donna, but as you say, that's farm life. Love your banner! And the mini-quilt you received in your last post is just gorgeous. Enjoy your BOM quilting!

  2. i have the pack from the FQS with the block and instructions....still unopened in my sewing room....I have a few other things to get on with, but pleased to hear the instructions are good.....sorry about the lamb losses it is hard if they don't get that first drink from their Mum they sometimes don't make it....One year I had the biggest, fattest and most healthy looking lamb and it just keeled over one day....like you say...temperamental! Nothing like farm life to give you the ability to cope with just about anything life will ever throw at you!!

  3. Love your Mystery BOM Block - great block design - it would look great as a whole quilt in that block. Hope the rest of the lambs do well.
