.: Care blocks + a house block :.

We've just had the most gorgeous weekend here in Brisbane - low 20s and sun - perfection.  

Just popping in to share some sewing I did during the week.  First up - an Irish Chain block and asterisk  block for Merran, for our Care Circle in do.GoodStitches.  Merran had asked for bright, happy colours - think oranges, pinks, magentas - on a white background for the asterisk; and lime green on white for the Irish Chain. 
{{the asterisk was based on this tutorial, with fabric-size and corner modifications by Merran}}

Here they are together - I really should line up my photos better, especially when taking them on my cutting mat!  All the blocks together will make such a bright, happy quilt.

I had to buy some of Shannon's limited-release Aunty Cookie prints from her Etsy shop - love her designs so much.  I've sewn the girls a house-block each for their quilts (which I've promised to have finished by Christmas ...) - but only remembered to take pics of one block.

This week's sewing-plans are to finish my Sweet Pouch Swap for Kara, get started on a few Christmas things, and to make more blocks for the girls' quilts.  What are your sewing-plans for the week?   xoxo cat
