New Splendid Sampler Blocks

I've managed to catch up a little and I'm now only missing 4 blocks, #19 is in the works but the embroidery is killing me, too much of it!  XD

I was afraid this one would turn out terribly boring, but I really love it, the blue paired with the little flower print - such a pretty block!

Soo much fun to do paper piecing again! Love those crisp points!  Despite this one giving me quite a bit of trouble and seam ripping I love it, and I love how the pink and green managed to form perfect little rosebuds for me <3 

Quick and fun but turned out a little bit too busy I think...

Quick and fun! However, it does feel a little bland and uninteresting, which I'd chosen more omph fabrics... But it might look great once thrown in the mix with the others =)

The Splendid Sampler Block 10 and 18

While working away on my next pattern (which has been less than cooperative) I've managed to sneak in a few Splendid Sampler Blocks. They're so much fun to make, but I'm so behind again, I've made 11.5 (nr 19 is nearly done, just embroidery left) of 19. I need to catch up! =)

This was a quick and fun block to make, no hassle and came together nicely.

Another fast and fun block, I really needed these fun and easy blocks to get me going again after my illness. I really love how this came out, such calm but happy colors <3 
And yes, I love the little dots for background fabrics =)

2016 Finish - A - Long Goals for Q2!

So for the second quarter of the 2016 Finish - A - Long my proposed finishes are as follows, hopefully I will finish more then 1 this time around, so I'm aiming for a grand 3! ;)

1. I really hope to finally finish my Hexie Tablerunner from Q1 that I didn't manage to finish.

2. I want to finish making my new backpack design and pattern of lovely Tula Pink Eden Fabrics! I'm very excited about this one! I think it will be super cool! =D

3. I hope to finish quilting long time WIP the Chameleon Bali Pop quilt. One should never let a quilt lie for this many years.... I'm ashamed.

Splendid Sampler Blocks 13 & 8

Since I've been sick for weeks now, and recovery has not been exactly speedy - not much sewing have been done, however I have finished The Splendid Sampler block 8 & 13.

Loved making this block, quick and easy which to my surprise packed a considerable punch when placed with the others! <3

This was aslo super fun, and surprisingly quick to make despite the tiny triangles =D
