Quilting afternoon...

Di and I had an afternoon of quilting on Saturday 
but of course didn't picture of our own creations,
only this shot of the picture Little Miss created with our scraps!

Accuquilt giveaway

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- 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.

Worth a look, girls! Could be a bit of fun - perhaps we could design our own fabric for a quiltitis challenge?

Block of the month- update

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.
