Scrumptious Fabric

It was Wednesday Club yesterday at Quilters Haven, and one of my New Years resolutions went straight out of the window. NO buying any more new fabric until I use up some of my stash. Well look at it, how could anyone resist such lovely fabric I ask. I bought 2 fat 1/4 bundles and the panel that goes with it, all little humming birds feeding at the most delicate of flowers. The fabric is called Gossamer, designed by Shell Rummel for Blend. What am I going to make? not sure yet, lots of ideas floating around in my brain. 

I got out another of my UFO's to finish, so I am not even going to think about my lovely new fabric until I have sorted that one out. Below are some of the appliqué blocks to finish.   

All the blocks are now appliquéd, and I have started to join them together. Not sure why I abandoned this quilt to the UFO pile, I am liking it again now. The Design is from Edyta Sitar's book "Hop To It." though I have changed the colour way and the sashing. The fabric is from a line of Lynnett Andersons for Lecien. It was called Sumertime, not sure it is still available, I think I started this quilt in 2011 

This is the progress of said quilt so far. Not sure why the pictures are a little fuzzy, they were taken yesterday at Wednesday club. Maybe it was the rare SUNNY day we were having.

This is Pippa with her beautiful quilt that she made for her daughter. All the fabrics were recycled and even her daughters pyjamas were included. I think her daughter will love it..

When I started this blog last year, it was meant to be an online diary. Instead of writing by hand in my journal each day for my family to read, it seems to have turned into a quilting/knitting blog with a bit of gardening thrown in. I now have readers all over the world and I Love it.

Keep safe and keep stitching...Doti...
