Siggy rehersal

I am still here!
Just to tell you that I am still here and actively quilting *smile*

I am eagerly awaiting my fabrics for the 'modern siggy swap' to arrive, in order to get started on the 101 signature blocks.

These are the fabrics I have chosen: Sugar Snap by Melissa Averinos
+ a solid white for the signature part of the block:

In my wish for the swap blocks to be nice, I decided to make some rehersal blocks:

I had some left-over IKEA bed linen fabric, that I had bought and cut for junior bed linen to my little boy.

The scraps became traning siggy blocks, that eventually ended up as new pillow cases. This is one of them.

Now my little boy requires my attention - blog you later!!

Those blocks don't look like my siggy swap blocks. They are beautiful and give me ideas of what to do when the 101 siggy blocks are in my lap.

Your fabric is great. I can't wait to ee the finished block.

Oh, I love the pillow. You've given me a few ideas. Thanks for the inspiration! Bumbed that I missed the siggy swap....maybe next time. The fabrics you picked are fantastic.
