Little Distractions

As much as I've tried to stay focused on getting a few UFO's done, I couldn't help myself from a couple of little projects.
I'm calling this one Dixieland. Dixie made the little block with the cutout and I couldn't resist doing a couple of more applique blocks. I tried adding an additional border but it wasn't working at all, so I'm going to leave this one "as is". Thanks again Dixie!!
Here's a little quilt I made from the Provence scraps Valentina sent to me. All of still smells heavenly from the lavender she sent with it. I'm calling it Provence through Cyprus.Thank you Valentina!! I only had to add two squares on my own fabric. Can you spot them?
And here's what I did with my Wool Crazy Round Robin. I won't be putting any pins in it, but I found this frame that worked perfectly!! I have it hanging next to an old bright red child's swimsuit. It fits the summer theme perfect. Thanks again ladies!!

  1. Little finishes -- NOT! :-) Those are big deals! I love the wool framed up -- perfect solution for that wonderful project. And I agree with you on the baskets. LOVE that stripey border on them. I'm guessing the "orangy" squares in the next to bottom row are yours!? Very cool!
    Blessings,

  3. Great finishes, all three.
    Are the 2 squares you added in the blue round, just right of center, one near the top and one near the bottom? They have more background, but are the same blue...I'm not sure.
    The wool project in the frame is perfect.

  13. Sometimes it is just nice to do a little side project just to get that little sense of completing something. The baskets are sweet and I also like the framing on the wool piece. My first ever quilt block never made it into a quilt, it is framed and hanges in my quilt room, a moon over the mountain block.
    Happy Stitching,
    Cheri
