WIP Wednesday: Supernova Friendship Blocks

I pieced the August Supernova Friendship blocks this week and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

My partner for this swap, Julie, and I both went with green blocks this month. Check out her blocks here. I'm on vacation this week and probably won't be able to get to the post office until Monday - I hope that's ok Julie? :-)

We have now pieced 3 of the 5 blocks and so far, I am loving how they all look together.

Linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday!

Thanks for stopping by.

A small finish: Purple Nail Polish

After I finished my Swoon a couple of weeks ago, I wondered what to work on next. I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds it difficult to start something new after finishing something really big?

Anyhow, over the last 2 weeks, I went into my sewing room about a million times and each time, I left without actually doing anything. The weather had something to do with it, but most of all, I think I needed a small break.

This week, my Bloglovin and Instagram feeds were filled with Nail Polish bottles... The quilty kind. And all of the sudden, I needed to cut fabric and make a Nail Polish wall hanging!

Purple is my favourite colour so of course my nail polish had to be purple. I quilted it in the ditch and then with straight diagonal lines in the background.

I'm very pleased with it and it was the perfect thing to get me back in the sewing room again!

If you would like to make your own Nail Polish mini quilt, go here. The pattern is incredibly easy and goes together very quickly. I'm not particularly fast and it took me about 3 hours from cutting to binding.
