Boys Story block three and Vignette sewing

I managed to finish the Boys Story block three, this was a much smaller block than the first two so it went together pretty quickly.

Kite applique

Block 3
I have put this to the side for a while to get started on the Vignette mystery quilt blocks two and three.  I have managed to complete all the piecing so now I am up to the applique, then lots of tracing and lots of stitching.

Because I am using different fabrics from the magazine, I find it quite difficult choosing which fabric to use and where!  I do not have a lot of experience in this!  However I love the birds that I was able to fussy cut, here is one of them:
So I had a really productive weekend sewing and I love that I am now up to the hand stitching (well, once I do the tracing) so I can take it with me where I go!
Happy stitching, Wendy


  1. those teeny applique bits would scare me half to death!

  2. I have had the Boys Story book for a year now and haven't started! I really want to make that one for my boys before they get too old!
    Your blocks look fantastic!

  3. Your fabric choices look great Wendy. You are really flying along now.
    Happy stitching.

  4. Oh you are making a boys story quilt too??!! I love it that book. I have to wait awhile to buy it...but I want it someday!

  5. Your Vignette blocks are gorgeous. It's going to look stunning when you're finished.
    Another lovely block of Boys Story too... I'm getting more tempted by that BOM with every block of yours I see.
