Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

Please say it's not December.  When you're a kid, December is so exciting and counting the days and starting opening the advent calendars.  When you're a grown-up, it's getting gifts for everyone and getting food and making plans and it doesn't seem like there's enough time.  I'm feeling panicky and anxious like I always do right on this very day.  OK so back to business.  What have you made, worked on, shopped for?  My fave makes this month are these two Tilda quilts I made for Sizzix using their HST, square and strip dies.  Firstly Granny's best china.

Daisy Quilt

And secondly Big Bubble Wrap.

What about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you. As always here's the button to grab.

  1. These are both such lovely quilts Lynne. The combination of the fabrics and the plain background gives such a serene effect.

  3. Granny's Best China is fabulous, this style of quilting, as usual, makes me think of chocolate, never a bad thing.x

  11. I've been coveting my local fabric store's Tilda supply for a few months now. Both of these quilts are tempting me to buy - but I will hold out (till after Christmas, at least!). Thanks for the chance to link up with other small blogs :)

  12. Love your big finishes :o) I'm in denial about it being the first of the month apparently, probably due to spending last night in the pub after work ;o)

  13. Both of your quilts are amazing! I've always been partial to snowball blocks, I love how they showcase beautiful fabric.

  15. Stunning quilts, I must admit that Granny's Best China is my favorite. I love the colours you've used in both quilts. Since this is a pattern of your own design, do you have any plans on printing and releasing it for purchase??
