QAL Wrap Up

Well, last week was the final block for the Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL.!!  I will be pretty sad now that it's done--I've really enjoyed the blocks each week, and I enjoyed being able to try something completely new that I'd never done before.  However, I'm going to try and do the New York Beauty QAL--all paper piecing (yoikes).  I'm already a week behind though, so I'd better get cracking on that!  Anyways, without further ado, here is the final block.

Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL. Block #12

And here is the lot of them.  My plan is to put in some sashing, but not just the regular type.  I can't think how to even begin to explain it, so I will just have to leave it at that until I post a pic.  I start a stretch of 4 days tomorrow so it may not be for a bit!

On top of that, I've also pin basted my African quilt for my sister.  It's just waiting for the right colour of  thread for me to get rocking on it.  

Pinning galore

In more personal news, I am officially engaged!!!  I'm very excited.  When I get a nice sunny day some blingy pics are most likely to follow :-).


  1. Whoaaa you can't put something like "Oh and I'm engaged" at the bottom of your post in tiny font! Congratulations!!! Looking forward to the pics :) Also looking forward to the not-regular sashing for the quilt, but come on, that's not REALLY what this post should have been about :p.
