Free Pattern - Consider the Lilies Pattern 2

Have you finished making the first pattern of the Consider the Lilies free block of the month design yet? Can you believe it's already time to download the next pattern?

Pattern 2

... A little bit of stitching, a bit of piecing and you are 2/3rd the way to completing the first block of this four-block design!  It is now available on my website for download here

I do hope you enjoy stitching this little block ... and what is under the pink fabric will all be revealed next month!

I was able to get a bit of a 'go-on' this week and managed to get a quilt finished and two other small projects.  Tomorrow I'm off to the Post Office to post them to two magazine editors.

This one is a Christmas in July project.

A sneak peak at a cushion

Our Church is having a market/fete next month.  I only just found out about it, seeing we are only new at the church, so I don't have much time to get a few bits and pieces made to donate.  So, it was out with the PASSES box.  PASSES are my "projects at a stand-still".  Sure enough, there were a few stitcheries, projects half started, (or should that be 'half finished'?), and things that had been sitting around for a long time. It is an ideal opportunity to salve my conscience and get a few of them completed, so that's the plan for this week.

I had a look in my "completed" box and found a couple of things that should be suitable:

A little pincushion - click on the photo to see the sweet little daisies around the edge.

A face washer embroidered with roses.

I thought I would make some more cupcake pincushions as people seem to like them.  I cut out quite a few but have only completed one.  They take nearly 3 hours to make so are definitely not quick and easy!  This is the one I have finished:

I'd better go and get some more stitching done!

Happy stitching!

Thank you Val, I'll get some practice with piecing on this one! I'm not a very good piecer...but I'll do it!

Can't wait to see your magazine projects. I love the little bird on your sneak peek! I think you found some really beautiful things for your church market, wish I could come. And yes, those projects are half-FINISHED....I'm sure you'll have them done all the way in no time!

Thanks for the new block. Like it very much. Still I have a question. Are there more sentences in the quilt? I am a Dutch girl and thought, that maybe it is nice to translate it in Dutch.
This one is easy to translate in a short sentence....
Can you please tell me?

Hooray! It's time for Pattern 2. I love this project, and truly believe God gave this on purpose for me. Thank you!

I give my husband his "What is Love" table runner for Valentine's Day tomorrow. I can't wait!

Thanks again for all you do.
