I couldn’t help but join in with Katy’s Swoon-Along! I already had the perfect fabrics in the form of Impressions by Ty Pennington! It had to be didn’t it 🙂 I’ve just finished my first block and I am quite in love. I say quite as they are monster blocks, at around 24″, and another 8 blocks are called for. This may take some time! I’ve used 2 prints, 2 klona solids and the background fabric is Kona medium grey. I’m thinking that I will do some form of quilt-as-you-go so that I’m not left with a mammoth quilt to struggle with on the machine. I am even contemplating some hand quilting in perle cotton as I enjoyed using it so much on Katy’s cushion.
Today this scrummy bundle of Folksy Flannels arrived on my doorstep and frankly I couldn’t wait to get stuck in with them. They are beautiful! I’ve just cut some huge squares out of them and now I’m going to get off the computer and sew them together 🙂 Woohoo!
If it’s quiet around here for a while please forgive me. We are expecting a very exciting new addition to our family anytime soon and I will be heading north on Thursday for a few days 🙂 Beyond excited!!
