New Block in Joy of Life

Today Bjørg and I had a new meeting preparing next block of Joy of Life BOM. Block number 1 and 5 are finished, and now we start on block number 2. Irene is the one taking the photos and we almost talked her into making bias for us LOL, because there is a lot of bias on these BOM.

It is a lot of work on this block. And I have traced and cut all pieces for this one. We have noticed that block 2, 4, 6 and 8 are probably the blocks with most applique on it. So to have enough to sew on this christmas we chose to make block number 2 now. And we probably will make them in order from now on.


Saying for today:
There's enough warmth in a friend's hug
to warm up the coldest day

Så flotte disse blokkene blir. Ser veldig hyggelig ut å sy sammen på den måten dere gjør. Da får man gjort litt også.

Hi May, I am doing this quilt as well although I started mine last Christmas!!! Mine was a block of month which included the fabrics and is the same colours as the pattern photos. That block is a lot of work and fiddly bias!!!! I am doing blanket stitch embroidery and other embroidery stitches for embellishing as needleturn is beautiful but I don't think I have enough patience. I hope to hand quilt it when its finished.
Have fun with it. I especially like the blue version too, looks great.
Kind regards from Liz

Your blocks for The Joy Of Life are looking great, I cant decide if I prefer the red or the blue version the best.
Happy Stitching
