A couple of new things here
Well new to me at least. It is Twiggy by Sanae which I think came out a couple of years ago but my LQS were selling off the layer cake last month at a price I couldn't resist. I had no real plan for it but when my Mum was here at half-term she really liked it so I've decided I'll make a quilt for her 60th birthday.
The plan is to make this one
Lattice quilt by Amy Smart. I found a Twiggy charm pack and yardage for the back online (also on sale - hooray!).
I'm thinking about quilting hand prints onto the large squares (me, my sister, our kids, my Dad). What do you think - nice idea or a bit cheesy?
I had a go at paper piecing last night and I loved it! I've put off trying it as it looked scary but I love the circle of flying geese I've seen on various blogs. I thought better not run before I can walk so I started with something a bit simpler
Star block from Fresh Lemon Quilts Summer Sampler Series. I'm hoping to do the rest tonight - everything is cut out and ready to go. So excited to have stretched myself a bit.
As it is the 1st of March (Happy St David's day to any Welsh visitors) Lily's Quilts is running her monthly Small Blog meet. I linked up last month and had some lovely people come to visit and I found some great new blogs so I'm linking up again.
Now I'm off to see who else is linking up.
