Montmellick-ing ...

Okay - someone needs to tell me where the past week or so has gone - because I have no clue! I know I've worked - done chores - we're at tennis 6 times in a week - and I guess taking care of the house and fam ... but other than that, I just can't account for what I've been up to.

I can share that in spare moments I've been working on the Montmellick appliqué. I'm almost caught up now :-)

All the broderie perse is finished now, and I've done one side of the appliquéd petal shapes. Oddly, it isn't easy for me to find scraps of red in my stash - I know I have some French General bits and pieces, but I've put them aside for the tumbler project that I'm hand piecing. Maybe I'll have to start cutting into yardage at some point - oh the horror!! :-)

See the red paper pieced hexagons in those corner pieces? The flower shape in the margin of the photo is actually larger than the one closer to the centre of the photo. I thought it would be nice to make the flower shape on the larger square fit it better, so instead of the 1/2" hexies, I used 5/8" hexies. I probably could have gone to 3/4" to take it to the margin of the square, but after making all the hexies I was too lazy to change them :-)

I'm looking forward to the next instalment of the magazine coming out. Quilt Mania is a bi-monthly magazine and I've lost track of which month it's issued, but I feel sure it must be soon.

I have paperwork, housework and shopping on my agenda today - so I don't think there will be much stitching happening. Chatter soon! xox

What a gorgeous quilt! I love broderie perse but goodness, it's slow going, so I tend to appreciate it from afar. Give me some big blocks and quick fix! I've bookmarked you so I can come back just to see some of your other work.

Pop around here chook- I probably have something red in my stash . I like the idea of helping you out and having one or more of my scraps in a quilt you made.

As usual - a stunningly gorgeous project from the House of Tazz.
