I've also started an english paper piercing bed runner as a surprise for a friend - I got the book at the Scottish Spring Quilt Event and started straight away cutting out the templates and fabric. Again I was able to use up some in my stash so feeling quite virtuous this weekend ( after spending in Scotland!!!)
This is lovely new book by Sue Daley and has some great ideas for fast projects using hexagons etc.- especially useful for doing whilst watching TV - particularly all these scandanvian crime thrillers on british TV at the moment!
I've also finished my folder for my swap partner Sabine in Cheryll's Let's Exchange - which is for a notebook/journal cover. This is another pattern from the Edinburgh Show - one of Anja Townrow's patterns. Again this was a great pattern and I have another one of a sunflower still to do.
And finally I was tempted to try a painted quilt so have drawn out a pattern called Tulip Delight by Esther Aliu and I've used coloured pencils with textile medium and its been really interesting so far- it will make a lovely bed throw if I can get it finished. This just the first part - it is over 5 foot long !
So lots to report and lots of lovely new blogs to follow !!
