Going Fishing!

Four more fish from
with one left to go.  I was late in starting this BOM and had to catch up with the first three.  Needless to say I am keen to download the instructions for the final block on 1st March, and have all the necessary fabrics to complete the quilt, though must admit it won't be exactly like that pictured on the above link. 
I have had fun naming these fish, and introduce Number 14, Leila, along with Numbers 1 [Spike], 2 Dougal, and 3 Yolande.  As I stitch the fish my mind turns over suitable names, and before the block is finished a name has sprung to mind, not that a name is essential.

Quilts for dolls

Every so often a challenge arises.  Recently I put my hand up to make some quilts for doll's beds for the Mrs Claus project and over the weekend completed the last of five.
It was fun to sort fabrics suitable for these mini quilts;  I did some 'quilt maths' resizing from a book of Quilting blocks but to save myself too much maths I did make sure the blocks I chose could use the same sizes.
