hexie, bow tie block,CQJP, Malvern

today I have three new pieces to share with you

Fist the hexie BOM for may is a butterfly



A bit dull re colour but  I have lots of hexies already stitched and these were the best I could us.

Also completed the CQJP for may,   I feel it needs more adding which hopefully will reveal itself when I join the 12 blocks together.


My final block of the monthly blocks is for bee blessed   the bow tie block. This is a challenge I take part in every month through a link in Belfast.

 
Friday I am off to London to say at Cherly`s and on saturday we are going to the Malvern quilt show, will no doubt be taking of photos and marvelling at the most wonderful quilts,  no doubt dong a bit of spending too.  I have already ordered some walnuts shells from Creative grids in case they sell out before I get there,they are for pincushions, have not been able to buy any before. Returning to London in the evening and then I will be coming home sunday evening,  travelling by mega bus which is a very economical way of getting around the country.
I am also looking forward to seeing the quilt, bag, mobile and one more piece that Cheryl has made for her C & G patchwork and quilting course she has been doing at Missenden Abbey, have seen a photo of the bag but will see them all properly whilst at her home.

This hexie butterfly is lovely! I took a closer look to your CQJP and I can see a feathered chain stitch on the polka dot ribbon, just an idea. Have a nice trip this weekend!

Great blocks Margaret, sounds like you have a busy weekend ahead! I have a pincushion filled with walnut shells that I received in a swap, and love it.

The butterfly hexie is cute. And your CQJP block is wonderful. It is hard to know how much to leave for filling in after piecing, isn't it? Have a great time in the big city

The hexie block - not at all a dull colour - I like it - the bow tie blocks are pretty - I like this effect of the small colour dots.

I think the butterfly is adorable and the colors are wonderful!

Jillian said...

I like your butterfly a lot - the contrast with the black is very effective. Your crazy quilt bloc, is, as usual, a work of art and the bow ties are going to look stunning. Great work - enjoy your time

I adore your Hexie Butterfly. She would be lovely sitting atop a soft yellow pillow. Beautiful CQ and bowtie blocks. Creative Bliss Dear...

Lovely work - in all your blocks, Margie. Sounds like you have lovely plans for the weekend! Enjoy the show and your visit with Cheryl!

Sarah said...

Your butterfly looks great! Very soothing. I finally picked fabrics for mine this weekend and it's in wild colors because I decided to use my pink/purple shot cotton and some other brights.

Creative grids are local people to where I live . I have known them for many years when Rachel's mum and dad started the business . Lovely people .
Still you learn something every day ,I didn't know they sold walnut shells .
I have a quilt top with lots of those hexie butterflies on . The hexies are very tiny.
