Jacks on his way.. & Linking Up to FQ

I had a false start selecting fabrics for my Jack Attack quilt but once I made my decision to go with Poetica by Art Gallery Fabrics I was on my way. The instructions by Lynne are genius & for such a big block it goes together really quickly.
I am piecing some of the backing so I will be a little slow getting it finished.

 I have made more blocks for my Kinky Bee swap. This is a design called Converging Corners and can be found here..

Then I had another Baby quilt to make... this is from a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman and is super easy - I love how it looks so different according to the fabrics... these are mostly Etchings by 3 Sisters for Moda.. Lovely soft greens that can work for a girl or boy... Turns out this is a boy quilt for Rupert.

I have also booked for Fat Quarterly Retreat in 2013 - I had such a fun time last year but will be trying  hard to Keep Calm as we all got very excited last year and I don't think I could sustain it at that level without making myself very annoying..

 So I'm just going to show my finishes from last year....

An early love of Union Jack from a class with Lynne Goldsworthy.

I finished off my FQRetreat cushion that I started in a class with Tacha - Yay.. another tick on the UFO list...

I also had a little play with the Portholes technique from the class with Lucie......

So thats it for me... I'm off to hide in a dark corner as I have realised that I haven't got a picture of the frame purse I made in Katy's class....
But as she's away at the moment so I might get away with it.... shush........don't tell on me...!
