A Productive Week

Wednesday is here again, it seems to come round so quickly!I have had such a manic day that this is probably going to be a short post.

I thought I had had a pretty productive week until now, as I try to think of what i've achieved it doesn't seem to be half as much as I had thought.

So this is what I've been up to:

A Secret Project
This is a tiny sneak peak of something exciting that I will unveil on Monday so make sure you come back to check this out.

Pom Pom Roman Blinds
These beauties are nearly finished now, just finishing touches to go and I need to try and source some specific cord for them, hopefully they will look fab


This is a tiny peak but it is coming along very slowly, don't know if I will finish, may have to change the current design to get things moving a bit faster

Rainbow Quilt
 My Kona Solids arrived today for my rainbow quilt, i'm so in love with these
I'm teaming them up with these two fabrics that I bought recently to go with them


Cravat scrap play mat finished

I free motion quilted this, it's only the second time i've ever tried this, the first being about 6 years ago. It's wonky and terrible but i'm actually pretty pleased with it. It's small and thick and sturdy as I used two layers of an old woollen blanket for the batting. So it's definitely more play mat than quilt. I backed it and bound it in flannelette which feels lovely but picks up all the dirt on our floor!
I will add more pictures later as the light was terrible when I took these.

Ooh so not as short as I thought it would be!

I'm now heading over to Freshly Pieced to see what everyone else has been up to for WIP Wednesday, check it out

Finally just want to say a big thank-you to Amy for hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival, I loved taking part and receiving comments about my ABC quilt and loved checking out all the other gorgeous quilts, so inspiring
