Sorry for the silence and two more GG Blocks

Sorry for the silence but I was knocked on my backside with a rotten cold. While I managed to do a little hand sewing most of my time has been spent sprawled on the couch with the cat (they make great hot water bottles!). I got a lot of snoozing done over the past two days, that's for sure!

Today I had wanted to do a detailed tutorial for my hexagon scissor fob/pincushion today but am not quite up to it so fingers crossed I can do it tomorrow!

For now I'll just share some pictures of my Godstone Grannies (GG) coverlet blocks. Each of these blocks is one of a matching pair.

I think that this is one of my favourite blocks! I love the stripes in the outer border and the fussy cuts in the center and at the points. This is yet another block that I think would be great stitched in multiples and then sewn together with a path to make a quilt!

Every time I have a spare bit of thread on my needle I use it to baste the hexagons that will be used for the path and I am pleased to say they are all basted now and many of them are stitched together and ready to be attached to the blocks. I'll start working on them tonight while I watch TV!

That's it for today so until I post again, stay healthy and happy sewing!
