Happy Friday to you! Are you joining in with the #100 blocks in 100 days challenge?
Above are my fabrics and since I have taken this photo I have found more text fabrics available in my stash. So let the fun begin! Starting tomorrow, I am so happy and thankful join gnome angel for hosting this fantabulous sew along.
I have started cutting my fabrics and I am labelling them and putting them in a container ready for sewing. I figure there will be a few days in the next 100 days that I will not have a lot of time so starting cutting and having them ready will be of a great help to reach my goal.
I have had this book for 3 years, the first I had all intention of joining in with the quilt along, didn’t happen. the second year I was gathering fabrics, and this year it is do it or you will never do it! I love this text fabric above with I sew Too!
I have also been exploring different ideas for laying these blocks into a quilt. I do no want to do a standard setting. So I am contemplating different options. I will do a blog post once a week with all of the previous weeks blocks so you can follow my progress.
I have recently been quilting up a storm. I have been joining Angela Walters with her fmq challenge. It has been so much fun watching everyones progress. I have had my machine serviced this week so glad to have it home all ready to keep on stitching. I have to thank my mechanic for looking after her over the last couple of days.
I was very please to be able to quilt a couple of quilts for a couple of other people recently. One was a brocade and the other is a quilt from Amanda Brandls bush gum blossoms range. Here are a couple of photos of them.
So happy weekend to all and I would love to hear from you if you are joining with the 100 blocks in 100 days!
Also joining linking with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop its Friday! I’m Whooping for such great Quilty friends and some wonderful finishes.
Until the next weeks update have a great weekend.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I am now returning to my sewing machine to work on the wedding gift. Don’t forget to stop by regularly and see what is new and on the blog or in the store.
