Finished Quilts

#excited

So my KCW Spring 2013 challenge hasn't gone quite as planned - life has gotten in the way a bit. However, last night,  I did manage to personalise a pack of 3 t-shirts (bought for £4 a while back) for the wee man, using some scraps and some freezer paper...



I love this one

I wouldn't use a pale fabric with a dark background like this again

my dad used to work on submarines so this is pretty cool
I used a ballpoint needle and sewed around the fabric patches after sticking them on using the freezer paper method.  It's such an easy and effective way of zhushing cheap tops up and making them a bit different.

I was partly knocked off my KCW course by the want to finish a couple of bee blocks off so that they can be hand delivered on Saturday...for Kate as part of the FQR Kinky Bumblie bees

 

They look a little wonky in the photos but are better IRL.

So Saturday (tomorrow!) is a long anticipated get-together for most of the Kinky Bee members, in the Liberty London Café.  I've booked myself a really good deal in a first class return which means a pretty early start but I'm giddy with excitement and can kip on the train so YAY!  I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
