Update on Progress

I think that the turn in the weather back to the cooler days and chilly nights has inspired me to do a lot of stitching and sewing as I feel like I am churning things out at the moment, but the best bit, I am LOVING it!
My plan of attack for tonight is my Vignette Mystery Quilt.  I have now pieced blocks 8 and 12 but I need to concentrate on getting block 4 to the finish line.

Everything is traced ready to go.

It should be a very relaxed night here as it's a Public Holiday tomorrow (Bendigo Cup) so no stress over kids going to bed early, homework etc so that Block 4 is well and truly set in my sights :o)

If you would like to see what else I have been working on feel free to pop on over to my Blog. I also have a giveaway there for my 100th post so please feel free to enter that one also.

How are your blocks going?
Enjoy your creativity,

Finally getting started!

After months of looking through Leanne's magazines and just loving the Vignette in stitches quilt progress, I've finally ordered a kit through Under the Mulberry Tree.  Email came this afternoon that the first part has been posted - wow!  Only ordered it this morning.  Can't wait now to start - it is so beautiful!  Now I can look at this blog happily, knowing that soon (??) I'll have something to contribute other than envy!

Starting a little late here

Hi Everyone

Thought I post a little note to say I am joining in the fun of the Mystery Quilt.

Have been watching the blog, reading and re-reading the magazine, searching searching for the perfect fabric to try something different. Then I saw them the lovely new fabric collection by Monica Solorio-Snow "Happy Mochi Yum Yum" from the Happy Zombie.

Here is a pile of Yum Yum being made into shoo fly's

And a few completed!!

And a few more
Looking good (except the lighting tonight doesn't do them justice)

So they are coming together nicely.  I have chosen a hot pink spot instead of the red, and a lovely soft pink spot for the background of the bird stitchery.

I have nearly got Block 1 together but everytime I put another shoo fly together I think I want to put it in Block 1.... 

So I have decided to wait until all 60 are done so that I can have the choice of them all.

Anyway will keep you posted...

Happy Stitching Everyone!!

And wouldn´t you know - I found the perfect box to stash my fabrics in?!It is like it was made for them….

And here: all of my lovely Cosmo thread for the stitching.

Fabrics and Threads

Hi! My name is Nicky. Although I won't actually be starting my Vignette quilt this year I wanted to share my fabrics with the group. I am using the range that Leanne has used. It is so bright and pretty, different from the civil war reproduction fabrics which fill my stash.

Although I am looking forward to starting this quilt one day, I am currently working on my Dear Jane quilt which will be my wedding quilt and I am racing to have it finished by my wedding date next year. I bought all these lovely fabrics from Patchwork with Gail B and threads from Stitches from the Bush before I got engaged and wanted to make a wedding quilt. So, until I have finished that my Vignette quilt has been stashed away in it's own tub ready and waiting for me.
Happy stitching every-one!
