Stitchery BOMs, Teeny Tiny Squares and A Sneak Peek

I somehow got worried that I wouldn't finish my stitchery BOMs for the month March. But yes, I eventually did. Only the poor little frog in Verandah Views block 3 - Bed and Breakfast, doesn't have its feet yet. Poor thing.

Last week my Teeny Tiny Squares Quilt Swap arrived. Such a wonderful small pinwheel quilt made by Christine. The small blocks are 1" finished. For this beautiful 15" x 19" little quilt Christine used Thimbleberries fabric. Thank you so much Christine! I was very lucky with this quilt!

I don't know if I will have time to make something for Easter this year, so I hung up this little quilt. It is one of my first appliqued works and even though purple is not really my color, I do think it is very nice for Spring and Easter.

These past two weeks I have also been working on my stitchery swap with Lyn. What I really liked about this one is that I used colors and fabrics I would never choose for myself. It is so much fun to do that! It gives me new ideas and possiblilities. So here is a sneak peek for Lyn.

Last week I finally joined the Siggy swap with Annelies at Quilts and Siggies. Next week I will show you the Siggy I will be making and the ones I have received until now. It is so wonderful that Annelies is organizing this. She has a lot of work, now having almost 700 participants. Thank you, Annelies, for doing this for all the Siggy swappers!

And then I wanted to share this with you ~ "When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace."- HH the Dalai Lama ~

Have a sunny and happy week!

Liebe Simone,
bei Dir gibt es so viel schönes zu sehen! Der kleine Pinwheel Quilt hat es mir angetan. Ich habe auch noch so viele Thimbleberries-Reste. Das wäre eine schöne Resteverwertung dafür!
Ganz liebe Grüße und auch Dir eine sonnige Frühlingswochen :)

Goed gevoel dat je weer helemaal bij bent met de BOM's. Ik loop helaas met alles een maand achter en heb dus heel wat in te halen. Ben heel benieuwd naar het project voor Lyn. Het mini quiltje is zóóó leuk!

Ik heb de BOM's ook net klaar. Die van jouw zie er weer geweldig uit. Wat een leuk quiltje heb je gekregen. Ook ik ben benieuwd naar de swap tussen jou en Lynn. Heb jij nog tijd om ook nog aan een siggie swap mee te doen.

Love your stitcheries. I have almost finished the Noah's Ark and then I will start with another BOM.
The tiny quilt is also very beautiful.

That is such a sweet little pinwheel quilt! Your stitcheries are beautiful as always. I really like the chickens--they look so friendly! Enjoy your week!

Amanda zei

I'm doing the same stitchery BOMs, and managed to finish the last one last night, just in time for the next set to appear! Your doll-swap quilt is amazing - how does anybody manage to make such perfect blocks when they are so tiny?

Wow....I love your wonderful stitchery BOMs.....they look marvellous!!
The two chicken are great....and you are right, purple is a typical Easter and Spring colour.
