WiP small progress


I made small progress on Ballerina quilt. I added roof and all seven houses are almost complete. I'll be adding chimney but I need to test it out first. I'm a bit behind the schedule since my girl celebrated her seventh B-day already. The most important thing to her is always the cake so she doesn't mind getting the quilt little late. This year she wanted some Lego friends on it. She asked for little horse, grass and flowers. That made the cake making very easy and she was pleased with the result.

I have prewashed the solid fabrics for MSBHQAL. You can read all about the fabric choice in my previous post if you interested.


Plus I felt like little paper piecing. I'm making another Hexagon trivet as a gift for my friend. I simply had to get this idea out of my head. I'm yet to quilt it and add the binding.

  24. I see your daughter has the same tastes as my eight year old! Lego Friends included! Love your ballerina house quilt and can't wait to see it finished. The trivet is beautiful too, I made one all black and white and this version is really cool too. It's incredible how you can make it look completely different changing the fabrics!
