Chandelier QAL

I haven't been terribly well the past few weeks which isn't at all like me.  I had a severe allergic reaction to some medication, which is taking ages to clear up.  It has made me appreciate how great it is NOT to be ill most of the time.

So my progress has gone in fits and starts, but mostly stops!  However I can report that I have finished making my Chandelier QAL blocks.  As you will see from the photo, I ran out of the Bella Solid background and am waiting for a fabric delivery before I can complete the top.

 I am really pleased with it, however: fabrics all pulled from stash and I love the way the clear colours sparkle against the off-white.  They remind me of Christmas baubles, appropriate given the time of year.

I also finished making my Thimbleberries Mark 2 star/flower blocks, blogged about here.  I had to buy three more plains for the flower centres, but everything else came from stash, so I am feeling good about that.

I ended up making 35 twelve inch blocks and, set 5 x 7, this will make a reasonably big quilt.  Not quite finished joining the blocks together but you can see the layout here.

Linking to Lee at Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday - thanks, Lee, for the Chandelier QAL: I hope you'll agree it's better I'm late than never!

Wishing you all good health and good progress both with your projects and with your Christmas preparations over the next couple of weeks.
