Oktoberfest has started

Over here in Munich, it is all about "Wiesn'" right now! This is what the people living in Munich call the Oktoberfest! Everybody is wearing their "Dirndl", traditional Dresses from beautiful cotton and linen fabrics!

So this would be the perfect occasion to show you my latest "Landmädel Blocks" The Blocks I'm making for the German hosted Farmer's Wife Quilt along, mostly in traditional Bavarian Fabrics,

More of my WIPs:
I'm quilting the Log Cabin Quilt for my Mother in Law
Sewing a pillow for the German Secret Pillow "Swap•pen"
And last but not least, I basted the Halloween Babyquilt!

All my Projects have a close deadline (for Birthday, Due Date and Mailing reasons)
So I'm leaving you after this short notice today!

I'm linking up with Lee's WIP Wednesday over at freshlypieced! Check out what all the other crafty people out there are working on this week!

Happy Crafting!

My Farmer's Wife Blocks. Right now, they don't really match well... I'll wait and see what happens

My basted Quilts. As you can see, I have started to do some Straight line Quilting on the Scraps of the Log Cabin Quilt

This is the Design I chose for the orange parts in the Quilt
This is the design I pieced for the secret Pillow Swap. I hope my Partner likes it!

The Rain is pouring..

… and it is time to cuddle by the fireplace with a warm quilt.
AND spend time at the sewing machine! YAY

In my last post I showed you my new Halloween Stash - Too cute to spook by Riley Blake, that will become a Baby Quilt for my friend's baby that is due on Halloween. Since this fabric is just too cute and the little witches and monsters are not scary looking at all, I thought it would actually be apropriate for a babyquilt. Especially with THAT due date.

The quilt will have to go all the way over the sea to Canada, so I better get started!

After having a really good time working with my new 60° Ruler which I got for making the Bloom Bloom Pow Quilt, I decided that this is gonna be another 60° Quilt.

I want the Hexagons to have a scrappy look so I combine strips with 1,5", 2", 2,5" and 3", so the stripset ends up being 7,5" high. That should make a pretty good crib-size quilt!

So here is my Design and the first two Blocks! What do you think?
