WIP Wednesday (no.6)

Well I've finished another block for the FWQAL, that makes a total of 4 but as it's now week 4 I should have completed 8, not sure when I'm going to get the chance to catch up but I will. It definitely won't be this weekend though as our local craft group is having a group camp, I'm so excited. I don't think I will actually get any craft done though as I think there may be slightly too much wine and Pimms involved!!!
Here is my latest FW block
Postage Stamp block

Also my quilt for baby Elsie is ready for a reveal
It's a mixture of applique and machine embroidery with some free motion quilting

I'm also really happy with the cotton check that I found for the back in my local fabric shop Carolyns.
I'm really enjoying doing some free motion quilting, I've booked myself onto a beginners course to try to improve, really looking forward to it, it's an area I would really like to improve and become good at!

I'm using the left overs of the backing fabric to make a birthday pressie for a lovely 4 year old that is having a birthday party on Friday.
I'm going to make a wide waist sash out of broidery anglaise and I'm going to do some hand embroidery on the bib.

My fabric has finally arrived for the We Can Do It Skill Builder Quilt, so far i've done the cutting for the first block which is a log cabin. I'm hoping to whip it up tomorrow morning, but sorry no pics yet.
