More monochromatic work

The red blocks are done, 12 blocks are what I aimed for and since I have to wait for some bleeched muslin I've ordered to continue that project, I've put them aside.
The project you see (part of) is a new curtain for the wardrobe window. I've been thinking about doing a curtain like this ever since we moved in almost 6 years ago and finally I've pieced the front. I need to order a backing that will let the sun through, so the seamallowances will show up from the inside. I've been quite thorough while piecing this, so the accuracy is quite good (if I can say so myself :-D)

I just love the blues, at least the textile kind ;-)

My newest obsession

This is what I'm spending most of my time on. I've had a fling with those gorgeous red-and-whites from time to time earlier, but now it has turned to real love. Today I have made Grandmother's Flower Garden-blocks while learning my husband to program his new website to be. You see, I have a plan................

Nothing to be revealed yet, but check in from time to time to see the progress.

Now I have to sew more.

Easter Coasters

Here are a couple of Easter related projects I've done the last couple of days. First there are the criss-cross coasters from this blog. I needed a quick gift when we were going to visit a friend couple. It didn't take long to make them and they were really appreciated.

The other coasters are for myself and my husband. They are handsewn and handquilted. Maybe you have a few Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks extra? They can easily be turned into coasters like this

Have a nice Easter everyone.
