I've been looking foreward to sharing my new fabric purchases with you, I bought these on our holiday and so of course they are just that little bit extra special.
I'm sure you can see a bit of a red, white & blue theme happening here. Isn't this red flag fabric awesome.
I also love fabric with writing on it,
The reason for all this fabric loveliness is for my new English paper piecing project called Smitten. Its only a small quilt, about lap size and you make all these shapes which then turn into bigger hexagons.
They are so much fun to make. I did these ones on the plane trip going over, it filled in some of the 14 hours of just sitting there. I did watch a few good movies to,
This is the back, all those papers tucked inside.
So far this is my favourite block, the flag is fussy cut from the red fabric pictured here. Its the perfect size. The only problem I find with fussy cutting is you tend to waste a bit of fabric.
I am enjoying working on this project alot. Its very portable and easy to pick up when you have a spare moment or two.
I'm heading off to a sewing day at my friends house, I have made savoury scones for lunch and they look delicious. Have a wonderful day.
