Some Kind of Wonderful Update

I have been working away on my SKOW but took a break to finish a quilt for my son’s 16th birthday. Now it’s finished I will attempt to get my top together asap. Check out my blog to see the finished quilt.

caravanshoes
I decided to replace the rainbow block with a vintage caravan.  I love rainbows but only in the sky, copies just don’t grab me. Dd Emma sketched my spoodle Molly in the caravan window, so cute.

I’m not a shoe person, flat feet just don’t lend themselves to pretty shoes, but I couldn’t resist these pretty polka-dot shoes.

catheart
My cat is still a wip.

friendschair

I need to choose hair colour for myself & my friend.
I decided to add some cushions to my chair. :-)

sewinghouse row

I also decided to change the sewing block slightly & added 2 quilts hanging on the line. They are little cheater cloth quilts. My pincushion became a cupcake pincushion because I stuffed up the writing on the original, lol.

My house row will be complete when I finish & add the caravan block.

I’ve also made the top & bottom rows of strips so I’m getting there!!!

Love the caravan block - and love the hanging quilts. Good to see the "real" tape measure too. (Not that I don't love it all - but those 2 blocks are special)
