Wow it's Wednesday again

Who keeps arranging for the weeks to rush by? Meh - not me, for sure.

All I can report is more lattice quilting. I'm liking it, although it's not nearly a soft as some straight line quilting would have been. However sometimes you need to sacrifice function over form. So says my Dolce & Gabbana high heels, and they would know. 

This is where it's at. I keep swapping between the stippling and the straight lines to keep my interest up!



Not so much progress on the EPP. I managed to pack some fabric in a bag when we headed off to hospital with the wee man, but I've only just got it out again. 



EPP is much more tv friendly in the evening, so I really need to get some more diamonds glue basted. I'll report back next week!



I'm thinking about having a giveaway soon for my lovely and discerning blog followers.  Do you think so too?  It's past time to celebrate a six month bloggiversary and my imminent return to work. I'll see how organised I am next week. 

Finally (and this is mainly for the Aucklanders out there, but you are all very welcome to contribute), it would be awesome if you'd pop over to Pledge Me ( https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/1268and have a look at my little non profit project to deliver kid's playspaces in the CBD. I'm sorry to fundraise by blog, but I don't have long so I'm desperate (in a dynamic and organised way!).

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Howdy visitors!

I've found my stippled quilts soften up pretty quickly after a wash and some use. It won't always be so stiff even if it's not as soft as the straight liners.
I love the fabric pull for your EPP. Is that another block or something else?

Get you with your D&Gs!
Might steal your idea of mixing the straight line and stipple quilting for my Swedish Quilt - depends how much time I have. Yours is looking great :)

Love the colors and the quilting. I haven't done too many quilts with bold sashing like that, so I'm not sure how I would approach the quilting. Thank you for sharing.
