New starts

After a sad trip out this afternoon to a family funeral I was in need of some fabric therapy so I started 2 new projects. The first one is a block for the New York Beauty Quilt Along. When I saw this one advertised a few weeks ago I just knew I had to join in even though I need another project like a hole in the head! Anyway, the quilt along started properly yesterday so I’m not too far behind for a change πŸ™‚ I imagine that there will be lots of fabulous variations of this pattern so it will be lovely to see them all taking shape in the flickr group. I’ve used a print from Melody Miller’s Ruby Star Shining range with some complementary solids in cotton and linen for mine and I love it! I’ve cut out the fabrics for 3 more blocks so I can make a full circle and might look at them tomorrow if I get chance.
The other project I started is a quilt for Angela (Wandafish), who was one of our giveaway winners. These are the fabrics I will be using. I’ve gone for vivid colours alongside monochrome prints. In my head this will be completely beautiful when it’s finished, fingers crossed it works in reality! Well Angela, I did say that I would go multi-coloured for you so I hope this doesn’t scare you too much πŸ™‚
There will be many large half square triangles like these. I intend to sew more tomorrow!
Hope this week has started productively for you too πŸ™‚ Catch you soon x

    So sorry to hear of your loss. This quilt along caught my eye, too, but I'm not joining until I get a couple of already-started projects completed! πŸ™‚
