Passacaglia # 18

Well, on this one, I started with the centre.
I like those circles :-)
And then the striped fabric for the stars.
It does have a bit of an impact, this one :-)

Passacaglia # 17

Finally. Another Passacaglia-block.
Being sick and trying to go to work is not conducive to doing other things, so, it's taken a little while, but here it is. And I've got the next ones prepped.
However, I am running out (have run out, more or less) of fabrics that looks interesting when being fussy-cut / printed. I have ordered two fabrics, but
Oh, well. Here it is. Not one of the most interesting ones, but it will work well in the finished project.
And here are the first 16 on the Design-wall.
I think it will end up on a 4 x 6 block setting after all :-)

No Sewing Progress - but some Tiny Totes

I'm sorry to say so, but there it is.

No Sewing.

Teaching has started, full gale, and what with holding about 3 jobs this month, and having a house and a family to say "hi" to, just occasionally, sewing suffers.

I have two Passacaglia Blocks printed, but haven't even cut the bits apart !

HOWever. This weekend, no work outside the house takes place, so the plan is, to finish preparing those two, and - hopefully - get some more Sampler blocks ready to publish.

BUT, just so that you won't get a post, completely without pictures, here are some pics of the Tiny Totes I furiously made in May, preparing the Free Pattern for Inklingo.

Tote on top is made with the Inklingo Double Wedding Ring collection, totes below are made with the LeMoyne Collections. The 4.5" free collection and the 6" pay-for-it collection.

Finished size of these are anything from 6 to 10" square, plus handles.

Passacaglia # 16

And so # 16 is finished.
I like this one, even if the fussy-cutting isn't perfect. I just tell myself it lends character to the block :-)

Unfortunately I have not yet prepped # 17. I do have the main-fabric chosen, though, so I hope to prep it later today ... if time allows :-)

Passacaglia # 15

In this one, the diamonds that form the stars, are made from the same fabric as the previous one. A Kaffe Fasset stripe ... and this one has enough pink to satisfy even my little heart.

Passacaglia # 14

Fussy-printed Kaffe Fasset spiky stripe. It looked pinker in my mind's eye when I planned and printed it, on this picture it looks more blue and orange.
Oh, well. I like it :-) and it will end up in the quilt.

Passacaglia # 13

Finally, block # 13 is finished.
Took its time, but then, I had another one prepped that looked simply awful when I laid it out before piecing, so it was trashed, and this one was made instead. As you can see, there's recycling of diamonds and squares from two other blocks, and the white seems slightly excessively bright, BUT, this is the way it turned out, and it will go into the quilt.
Blocks 14-16 are prepped and ready to roll ... which is good, because I don't really have time to sew the next couple of weeks, but this way, I will at least be able to sneak in a thread every now and then.
