Lincoln’s Platform and a Bunch of Blooms

I've been working on my Vignette In Stitches quilt since finishing My Garden the other day – I should have had the first part completed before now really but I'm almost there now. I'm hoping to be able to go and collect Issue 2 soon, I know it's en route to Patchwork Chicks so hopefully not long before it lands…the sneak peaks all over blog land are wetting my appetite! No pic of my Vignette yet I'm afraid I forgot šŸ˜®

Today I made last week's Civil War block – Lincoln's Platform. I enjoy making these on a Friday morning just in time for the next one to appear!



I think a plain red would have been better in hindsight…but that's always such a wonderful thing!

I've been making a flower a day this month as well, here's the most recent bunch of blooms…


The purple and green are my favourite colours in this line of fabric.

I managed to slice the top of my thumb while making coleslaw this evening – I'm hoping it's not going to slow down my stitching too much!


Next Friday is the March Friday Night Sew In – not sure what I'll be sewing yet but I've a few things on my list! It's not too late to sign yourself up for a night of lovely sewing šŸ™‚
