Wiggle It Just a Little Bit...

This is a substance light post.  This is the diet crispbread of blog posts.  You should be able to tell that straight away from the title. 

Despite a lot of sewing in the last few days, I really have nothing I can show you.

There`s been a lot of wiggling going on here recently.

First up, I did some curvy wiggling with the orange strings that sweet Jennifer sent me.


 Then, having thankfully got a thumbs up from my For the Love of Solids swap partner, I wiggled up the mini quilt top.  Now I have a little breathing space to work out how I`m going to quilt it.

Only sneek peeks are allowed.


I also wiggled up a Union Jack mini quilt using Echo fabrics but it`s pretty lame. Sadly, Echo fabrics were harmed in the making of this improv.pieced mini quilt top.  Sorry.


...and I`ve also been wiggling for Jennifer`s Modern Mini Quilt Challenge but you`ll just have to wait until Friday to see what I`ve come up with.  I hope you`ve been following along with the blog hop as there`s loads of inspiration and if you come up with your own mini quilt or mug rug, you can join in the challenge and perhaps win some seriously amazing prizes.  Of course it`s the taking part that counts.  But there are some amazing prizes.  Just saying.  You can read all about it here.

Anyway, I hope I haven`t let that song settle in your brain so that you`re humming it all night! Hope you have all had a great weekend!

I do love the 'For the love of solids' quilt, not only the colours but the pattern too.
Brava!

Ooo, I can't wait to see your mini - and I think all your wiggling looks fantastic.

I think the. "harm" inflicted has been for the good of the fabric!
You know sometime people (and fabric) don't know "what's good for them" until they've tried it :))

Lovely as usual Annabella

Just the thought of spoilt Echo is giving me palpitations! xxx

Katy Cameron said...

Gotta love a little wiggle room in your sewing... :oD Looking forward to seeing all your teases revealed!

Jenelle said...

Hehe! I think even Echo deserves to be experimented with. I can't wait to see your mini too! I am still trying to decide if I should make one.

gorgeous orange fabrics Annabella - and yes, thanks for that song now entrenched in my head - I'll probably be singing it all day :)

Hey! diet posts are a-okay in my book. I love looking at pictures anyway! And btw, it's not fair how STRAIGHT all your seams are. Obviously you are going to pick the best pictures for your blog, but I'm still jealous of how pretty it all looks!

It's great to know you're experimenting and having fun with all your fabrics, Annabella, but especially gratifying to see my orange strings put to use! It's soooo much better than having them languish at the bottom of a scrap bag in my hall closet. My first blogiversary is coming up in a week or two...might have to pass along some more fabric just to see what others can do with it :)

Love all the sneaky peeks! Your solids quilt is gorgeous!!

diane said...

All your makes are coming along. Glad you got a thumbs up from your partner. I have not even begun my FTLOS swap project. The inspiration will stop for the mini blog hop once they arrive at my blog. I'm stagnating here!

Wiggling can be fun!! I keep getting emails questioning me if the rumors about FUNC being in Morroco. LOL I just reassure them he is there and time is of the essence.

Love your wiggling! Are you sure you harmed Echo? It looks fine from here! Love the peek at the solids mini!

Janine said...

All your wiggling looks fab to me!

Love your solids project!!
