Little Bits of this and that...

I've spent the last few days making more of the small blocks needed for the Message in a Bottle quilt. Some are applique and many are machine sewn, pieced. Many are Taupe fabrics but some are Linen and some Japanese cottons. They all go well together.


 
When I've been away from the machine I've sewn a bit more of the broderie perse flowers. A much slower progress with them or I've slowed a bit with the joy of finishing 3 projects
last week.
 
 
 
 
The weather is cold, wet and miserable only improved by staying indoors and watching my 'footy' team thrash the opposition. Yay!

I like the pile of blocks. I did a search for the pattern design. The first thing that came up was a pattern by Miss Rosie by that name and it did not look like the blocks would be for that. Then I found the bottle quilt. Oh so nice!
