This week I finished up my second set of 5 blocks for the goodnight Irene sew along being hosted by Terry's treasures
I did another of 16 patches as I haven't gotten my background fabric purchased yet... although I'm thinking a buttery yellow is what I'll go with.

Well this week I am still working with pink as it is this month's colour for the rainbow scrap challange over at so scrappy. I've finished up my lighter pink block for the "charming rainbow" quilt
I've also been working this week on a birthday present for my mum. I'm about 2/3rds of the way done I'd guess.
I've used heat and bond to adhere the fabric and then machine stitched around all my shapes adding some decorative stitching as I went. I'm pretty much in love with it, here's hoping my mum feels the same. :)
And that's about it for projects this week as I spent much of the time I would have been sewing cleaning and organizing my sewing room

This week the new colour came out in the rainbow scrap challenge for February… it's pink (for a brief glorious moment I thought it was purple). So I started on some HSTs for "love is like a butterfly".
I used EQ5 to make a layout for my "charming rainbow" quilt so I could get an idea of where I wanted the star to be in each block I came up with this
Using this plan I laid out my pink charms for the lighter pink block; no sewing on that one yet though.
This week I also started on a Goodnight Irene SAL put on by Terry's Treasures I drew up a plan (again on EQ5)
Last but not least I got the quilting done for "Jack's Jack" now it just needs binding. I'm planning on using a red white and blue stripe
