some pretty pictures..

Nothing much happening here, quilting is filling most of the crafting time I get. 
I am working on the end panels of my Park Avenue quilt. I am quilting a lattice design and I am liking the effect.
I had quilted around the wool applique but decided to unquilt it as there were too many uneven and puckered parts. 
As I wasn't well I didn't stay at applique class last week, just popped in long enough to pick up the pattern and any tips that might help. I still haven't started mine as I can't seem to find my bias maker. I'll get to it this week hopefully. In the meantime I have some pics of the rest of Mum's Once upon a time blocks and her baltimore blocks. She has gone great guns with her recent block. I think she is going to leave me for dead this month.
block for June
 

the lovely princess...
the frog prince and regal accessories.. There are two of each block.
Won't be long and mum will be sewing them together.
Hopefully next post there will be some progress on one of my projects...
have a great week
Marina
