Project Planning

I was able to finish up the second block of the 3rd set of blocks for the Super Penguin QAL (sounds a little confusing) last night.  And I started my English Paper Pieced Block for the Travelling PicStitch Blog Hop.  I definitely need some practice!  My stitches look terrible and my pieces are not fitting together as I had planned.  I'm not giving up on it yet...I'm just going to try to adjust the pieces as I go.

And here are the charms from the Spoonflower Swap!

There were a few that were more "adult".  I'm thinking they would make great mug rugs!
But most seemed to be geared more toward boys, which is wonderful!  Any ideas on what to make with these?  Anyone?  I'm leaning toward a quilt made of triangles or maybe wonky log cabins?

These are my favorites.  I am in love with the little mammoths!  Would it be weird if I made something for myself with this?  Maybe an e-reader cover...

Surprisingly these were the only ones for girls.
And there were a few "what were they thinking!?!" fabrics in there too but I won't post a picture of those (don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, lol).
Send any ideas or suggestions my way :)


  1. Your english paper piecing block looks great! I cut my pieces just inside the line, so when the shape is wrapped in fabric, it's not too big. I hope you carry on. It's very relaxing : )

  2. Such cute fabrics! Thanks for sharing them.

    Your picture at WIP Wednesday really caught my eye! Love the colors you've chosen!

    1. They are some of my favorites so I've been hoarding them :)

  3. wow, you've got some really fun fabric there. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday.

  4. Oh I love your paper piecing there! So sweet - I should try making one of those someday! :)

  5. Your paper piecing looks pretty great to me. I've never been game enough to give it a go. The spoonflower fabrics are fabulous and I would definitely use the mammoth fabric for you! Who said you can't use cute fabric for big people.

  6. Lol I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks like that.
