Sewing and reading

This is the 2nd block for Lori's  Humble Quilts  quilt. There is always a lot of fabric cutting  to be done with each block, so I spent quite a few hours this week just cutting out squares in two different sizes.
This I'm sure will make a difference to the time spent on each block. The bundles of colours are mixed so that I have a large variety to pick from and the shirtings are all the small pieces I have had left over.  The containers I bought at the Supermarket and are a wonderful size for the job they are doing.

Something different! At Somerset on Friday, Karen gave  us a challenge to make the following. She had got them at Market and brought them back for us. They came in a little package with the instructions and a bundle of fabrics.  I haven't done any Foundation piecing for a long time and it was thoroughly enjoyable, to sit yesterday afternoon and make these 'Cupcakes'. I just need to put the borders on and finish them off.

I like using the plastic containers for projects, nice way to hold them, take them with you and keep extra supplies too.

I recognized the block right away! I love it Dorothy! Love how organized you are.
The cupcake blocks are adorable.

Great organisation with the plastic boxes - look so yummy laid out like that too! Your block is gorgeous. Foundation piecing is enjoyable isn't it - especially when it works out so precisely in these cute cupcakes!
