Grooving along

This is all I got done in the way of sewing this past weekend...This is part of my Totally Groovy quilt.  I thought it would be easy to do and yes it is just a bit of tedious but then I suppose all quilts are.
I am very glad though that I didn't decide to do the king size quilt or I would be still be doing it at Christmas time....(actually I will probably be doing this quilt till then anyway.)
 
 
 
I have been sewing my curves and am so happy that I bought a curve master foot for the sewing machine....I did try a tutorial showing how to sew a curve without pinning the fabric but it didn't work so this is what I did in the lovely sunshine on Saturday.....
 
 
And then on Sunday I got cracking on the quilt top.
 
 
 This is only about a quarter of the quilt....
 
 
It needs a good press doesn't it.  I think I need to open the seams....fun and games.
 
 
I have been stalling with the sewing of late but it doesn't stop me buying some fabric.
 
I picked up some of Lotta's new fabric Bella....I have been waiting and waiting for this line to come out.....have an idea of what I would like to do but will wait a while before I start cutting.
 
 
and I picked these up from M is for Make this week....I love what Kate has in her store.
 
 
This week I need to start cutting some charms for my two charm swaps.
Oh the joys!

  3. I really like the colours in your Groove quilt. I used Amanda's hack, so the piecing went together fairly quickly. I'm waiting for my order of Bella! It is just so gorgeous!

  4. Oh, I love seeing these quilts around blogland! :) It's going to be so beautiful! But all those curves (just the talk of them even) make me nervous. Looks like you're doing a great job. Oh and love your pin cushion..so cute! :)
