Spring is on its way

Ok so it’s rained on and off all day here but Spring has found its way into my sewing room today.

I’ve mixed some Breeze by Wendy Slotboom with some Sunkissed by Sweetwater and a couple of other prints to make a very Spring coloured quilt. I love the way these colours and prints work together.

The Sunkissed text print with the words sunshine, renew, plant, life and hope is just perfect for this special quilt. Now when I say this I am not blowing my own trumpet but alluding to the fact that this quilt, once finished, will be raffled off for {Modern}Relief- Japan. The news out of Japan has been so seriously distressing that when I read this post by Heather, I jumped at the chance to do something I love in order to help in a small way. More details will be available very soon so please watch this space.

I drafted a pattern for the quilt yesterday and quickly started slicing fabric. Today I’ve managed to complete the first strip of the quilt πŸ™‚ I’m hoping that somebody will like it enough to want to buy raffle tickets for the chance to win it and if not I guess I’ll have to buy some myself, or hold family members to ransom πŸ™‚
