Freefall Link Up #4

Wow!  It's here!  Have you managed to get all 20 of your blocks done?  Now's the time to show them off! I have one to show you that is destined to become a cushion cover.
I see Miss Bella was parking her butt on it...maybe she's dropping hints/furballs to claim it for her own!

Puh-LEEZE remember my tip that I've mentioned more than once that if you cannot wait and have to sew your top together, you avoid that place in the layout, and in my Freefall quilt, though not in my Windfall quilt, where I have 3 leaf points pointing together.  Yikes, it was too many seams there, nasty.  So tip them alternate ways than mine! Be free! Be less seamy, lol.

Sorry that the linkup is out a little late today:  busy day yesterday with stage 1 of the kitchen reno, not a good night, because of an upset digestive system of Naala's, early morning yoga for me, followed by my ophthalmologist appointment (got a 'eyes are good!' from my doctor, so yay, that's a welcome phrase, and I don't have to go back to him for 6 months instead of 6 weeks), and dilated pupils makes for sensitive eyes even looking at a computer screen...Anyhow, let's get on with it shall we?!

Can't wait to see what lovely renditions you have of my pattern!  It is really and truly exciting to see so many gorgeous, knock one's socks off, fabrics being used for my design. 😄  Thank you all so much!  This link up will run until next Sunday night, so you have a full week to finish up the six half & half blocks.

Funny photo for you today.  Took it yesterday before we set the temporary countertop on the cabinets.  Didn't even notice the photobomb until Dayna pointed it out!! 😼

The new stove will go where the brown IKEA Kallax cabinet is.  There is still more for MacGyver to build in Stage 1, but WHAT a difference to dismantle the peninsula  that divided the kitchen in half!  He's raving about the superior quality of these cabinets, one very happy builder!

I had to go back and check the picture you texted me, Bella isn't in that picture. I was going to kick myself if I had missed her in the picture. I can't tell if she's laughing at you or yelling at you :P I'm doing a happy dance for the good eye report! Best news of the day. Love those cabinets. MacGyver just keeps plugging away. You should bake him some scones O:)

For the half and halves...I have 3 finished, one almost done and realise that the pieces for the final 2 leaves are too busy and too much patterned,( is that grammar error) so have to find another 2 really plain batiks. That photo, what is she saying?

Is Bella shouting at you to stop or hurry up. MacGyver is definitely a keeper.

Funny, funny! Bella looks like she's singing....if only there was a tiny microphone in front of her. What a diva!

Bella is so funny! What a cheese. I am so excited to be linking up today and checking out all the other variations. :)

That block looks great. And Bella is adorable as usual.

Best laid plans... Family emergency and death so no sewing for me this past weekend and not looking good for the foreseeable future. Maybe I can find a way to hide in the sewing room, turn off the phone and make my final blocks. Wish me luck.

Didn't follow along on this one but may have to did it later. Love your quilt. Bella, Bella 🐈❤️

Louise said...

Ha ha ha!! Bella's face! Good thing our cats have mouthfuls of vicious teeth so they can chomp down big bowls of kibble like the killers they are...

Rosa said...

The block is beautiful and Bella adorable!

I really meant to keep up, but I've fallen behind :( It's difficult in the Spring to get much piecing time!
