Happy New Year!
Have you all recovered? Well the decorations are all down and out away until next time and I've been hitting the sales - the online fabric sales ;-)
The first to arrive was this beauty from
...a Kona Solids jelly roll, a couple of metres of Kona solid white and a bolt end of a Moda Snowbird design to add to the fabrics for a quilt for my daughter's bedroom once it's been decorated.
There are a couple more orders on their way too :-)
We saw Isabelle at the weekend and gave her her Christmas gifts at last!
...a large Paddington floor cushion I made for her
...and a pair of pink tiger feet socks
were amongst her many gifts.
She's been spoilt this year and she's loved every minute of it!
I'm aiming to finish the Tula Pink City Sampler quilt soon.
There are 100 blocks in all and I now have 30 left to make.
I've now decided how I will put it together so that's encouraging me to carry on!
Here are the 8 blocks I've done so far this year - my aim was for one a day so I'm ahead of myself so far :-)
I'm still making blocks for the Quilting Bee which ends in March I think.
I had my month in November but still waiting for 4 blocks to arrive so I'm glad I didn't go for Christmas fabrics to make a Christmas quilt as I'd originally thought. My theme is black and white fabrics and the block is Trellis Crossroads
This is my block...
...and this is what the finished quilt should look like - I will be putting 9 of the blocks on the front and 3 on the back...I have my reasons...
I won't be signing up for any more quilting bees :-/
I believe I have a quilt in January's issue of Popular Patchwork magazine although I haven't had my copy yet. Here it is...
They have another of my quilts too - a bed runner inspired by Stonehenge & Avebury stone circles, so I'll let you know when that's published too
