Don't you love it when you find a new pattern and you just can't wait to get started and make that very first block. This was the case when I saw this quilt on Pinterest, its so pretty. Its an older design by Fig Tree quilts,
I sorted through all my fig tree fabrics and then realized I wouldn't have enough for all 16 blocks so I put a shout out on my Instgram page and I was so lucky that a few friends had exactly what I needed so we did a few fabric trades, it was so much fun. My first block took me at least 2 hours to make but now I have the swing of things I'm hoping the next one will be shorter.
Later this year I hope to be teaching a few more classes at Patchworksplus shop, Sarah and I have been coming up with a few class projects and we think a disappearing 4 patch will be a great class, can you believe that this block was just 4 charm squares sewn together.
With some careful cutting and rearranging it soon became this sweet block. I can't wait to make more.
Number 3 son is a minecraft fanatic and he asked me to make him a wall quilt, He drew 4 blocks, here is block one. At least the others have a bit of colour in them.
During the week I ordered some of the new tilda fabric, oh its beautiful. I can't wait to start sewing with it, I just need to find that perfect pattern once again. I should design something myself.
I'm spending today with a very good friend for a sewing day so I had best get organised, we have some serious catching up to do.
Enjoy your Sunday and I hope you find some sewing time.
