SKofW (Some Kind of Wonderful)

I am way behind on my SKoW block deadline...which is the end December to have the first blocks finished, but after a big morning in the sewing room I am feeling a bit better and hope to have it finished by the end of next week. And now it's writing I can't go back on my word! Lol! These pics were taken in my sewing room tonight and they seem to be a lot darker than they are.

I am going to try and use all the fabrics from my stash so it's going to be a much scrappier quilt





My favourite blocks...patty cakes, jeans and cup of tea











And heres what I sent to my SSCS partner Laila in Norway...I can now share with you as she posted on her blog yesterday.

Happy New Year! See you in 2012

I love the fabrics you chose for your SKoW quilt. The blocks are so cute. Not to sound like a dingy, but what is a SKoW quilt? It is going to be a beauty! Have a great weekend!

From what I've seen any gift you make is a Treasure! And I also don't know what SKoW means!! Good work Lisa!

Looks like there will be a lot of work in SKOW but it looks beautiful so far. Your swap present is gorgeous.

Wishing you a Happy New Year and lots of wealth, health and prosperity in 2012.

Your SKofW is going to be gorgeous. The fine china tea cup is especially lovely. Even though we are all behind schedule we will get there in the end. I love your swap gift too.
