So recently it was my turn to be Queen Wombat! That is, I got to pick the theme and have fabulous paper pieced blocks and awesome scraps sent to me for the month of November in our Wombat Stew bee group. It’s good to be Queen.
My theme was sewing. It was a close call with birds, as I do love birds too. But the idea of a sewing themed mini quilt created by my gorgeous friends was too much to resist.
Enough talk, more photos, right? Okay. Here are all 7 blocks together!
Aren’t they fantastic?! I’m so in love with each and every one of them. I love that I have blocks that will remind me of my fabulous friends and look how great they all go together!
You want close ups right? Who wouldn’t?!
This is Fiona’s tape measure block. Those following the And Sew On BoM might find this one familiar! Fiona laid out a block idea and I put it into a pattern form.
Here’s Alyce’s pincushion block. Look at that rainbow-y goodness!
Gemma’s sewing machine – modelled on Gemma’s real life sewing machine! Check out the impressive matching of the striped wall paper!
Spools by Jane. Love the sketch fabrics for the thread – oh and she used woodgrain fabrics for the spools. Love!
Lara’s scissors – you can tell because there’s a selvedge in there. Love it – says “Made in Japan”. Perfect addition to the scissors!
Glorious purple based seam ripper block by Marieka. Yummy Terrain mixed in there. Who could resist!
And of course, my sewing room block. The one that inspired the idea for the And Sew On BoM. Give it a few months and you’ll be making your own version of this if you’re joining in the BoM!
Not only did I get these amazing blocks from the Wombats, I also got these amazing scraps. Spoilt spoilt spoilt.
Oh yeah. It’s good to be Queen. Even just for a month.
A massive thank you to the Wombats for all the lovely squishy mail. I feel very blessed to know each of you and treasure your friendship. I am beyond thrilled now to have blocks sewn by you girls. Can’t wait to put them altogether into a wallhanging so I can admire it, think of you gals and smile. Thank you!
