I've been enjoying reading different blogs, they're a great tonic when you are tired afterwork, and really are not in the mood to do anything active. Anyhow, I decided to enter this draw for a accuquilt fabric cutter, part of which was to link to the draw - here- http://alamodefabric.blogspot.com/2010/08/give-way-time.html. Finger's crossed!
I have discovered an amazing website where you can design your own fabric, then they will print it and ship it to you. If you are a budding fabric designer, or if you're frustrated when the exact fabric you're after isn't in the shops, you need to check out this site! I've had a quick look just now, and the prices seem very reasonable. All in US dollars, they ship internationally. It almost seems too good to be true.
I have finally got up to date with my block of the month. Holidays at Home- Bloom Creek I have always fancied doing one of these. The idea of getting a parcel of fabric each month seemed like such an easy way to do a quilt. I've done a few with lots of the same block, so it was a great chance to do lots of different blocks. Plus- its a christmas one and I did promise myself I would do a christmas one - one day. So I have now done the centre of the quilt, and most of the blocks for the surrounds- there are 4 each of the Churn Dash, cross like one and flying geese blocks but I didn't take pictures of them all. I think that the next month will be a card trick style block, which is an old favourite, and then the last month will be the sashing and putting it together. It's kind of nice not having a huge chunk of fabric to cut up all at once. And I am getting use to the cheater's Strip It fabric that I posted about a few months ago. I will post more as I get and sew it.
