Hey! I'm featured!

Welcome to those that have stopped by from The Needle and Thread Network.  I am thrilled to be featured on the site's Feature Fridays section.  Another good opportunity to share a little more about what I've done and where I would like to go. 

So here is a little more of what I have been doing since the year 2013 started.

I made some blocks for my local guild's community quilt.  This year the coordinator asked for predominately "dull" fabrics.  She clarified saying that she wanted no bright jewel tones.  So I chose these scraps that look like reproductions.  Here are two of the blocks that I made.  What do you think?
Just before 2012 ended, I had to come up with a quick gift for a colleague at work.  I remembered that I had a little gadget that I wanted to try.
I had some additional Christmas scrap fabric that I could use.  So I came up with this little number.

I made five of these but only finished four in time to give as gifts.  I love the way these pinwheels tesselate.

Well that's a bit of what I have been up to.  Till the next time, happy creating!!!

I too have the little gadget but have not yet used it. My quilting buddy got it for me.
I like the fabrics you used.
