Sweet Peas

It’s time for a catch up. We’ve had, I think, three Sweet Pea gatherings this year. The ladies are as busy as ever with their different crafty pursuits.

Debbie has been creating a Foxy population explosion! Look at this troop.

Rochelle brought a pattern home from Canada and charm square pack to make this crib quilt:

Being the clever pixie that she is Rochelle looked at the outers of the circles

Rochelles reverse circles

….and figured out that there was a potential to make another quilt:

As a group we have joined the Bloom Quilt sew along this year.

Sorry about the poor image – best I could grab off the net.

We have made our first round of blocks, Block 1 and two:

It’s so interesting to see our different fabric and colour combinations.Margaret (bottom row) is sewing hers onto a wool background.Rochelle, top right is using peel and stick, the rest of us are using the interfacing method.

Margaret has just finished quilting this Ginormous Big-as-Texas quilt. We had to take it outside to get a photo:

Margaret's huge quilt

Rochelle made these very cute retro caravan placemats as a retirement present for a work colleague.

So all is well with Sweet Peas.

Thanks for popping by



  1. Love those foxes, must drag out my pattern, maybe an Easter project ....

  2. I love Margaret's blocks, and the two circle quilts especially the one made from the leftovers.

  3. so much to see and admire today and what fun the caravan place mats are. Such cute foxes too and the circles so beautiful circular mine would never turn out so accurate. Must not forget the applique flowers or Margaret`s lovely quilt all in all and great show

  4. Beautiful projects - every single one! I can imagine the Ooohing and Aaahing when each project is brought out for Show and Tell.

    Craft on, Sweet Peas!

  5. Love love love the foxes and the background quilt

  6. Don't know about Sweet Peas I think you should be called Busy Bees! Can't believe how many foxes are in a huddle on that chair (still haven't made mine) and I see Julie may be about to make one, before we know it there will be foxes popping up all over blogland!

  7. Hi Linda, what an active productive group you girls are! Cute Foxes and a rather nice quilt in the background. P.S did you quilt that quilt you emailed me about?


I love hearing from you - write now!
