I was lucky enough to play "nanny" to my granddaughters for most of the weekend. Sewing wasn't primary for me but I did get a few things done to show you in progress of making my London 2012 quilt.
I decided to fussy cut a little Buckingham Palace guard to put in the bus window as a driver. He's so darling there.
I have several crowns I've appliqued for this project. And here is a little teacup. I'm not done with either block yet but it is a start.
I am finished with my London Eye block. It sorta looks like a giant spider or something but it is supposed to be the London Eye. I used a dresden plate template and just fussy cut using a very wide striped awning type fabric to get the lines in the eye.
I have this very elegant silhouette block courtesy Pam Kitty Morning. She was kind enough to share her idea with me. I used mono-filament thread and a very thin fusible. It gave me the look I was going for even though that method isn't my very favorite.
I'm not finished making blocks yet. When I'm all done I'll decide how to put them together. That will be fun, too.
