I had lots of nice goodies for Xmas from the family including some great quilting books and some fabric as well. So I have no excuse for not having any ideas and have already finished a cushion from one of the books I received.
The other BOM I have started is the Hexi Blog BOM and the first block was quick to do and reminds me of a snowflake .
I am using the Vilene quick screen grid which I came across at the Knitting and
stitching show last autumn- it is great to use instead of paper as you can leave it in for stability.
Then I have a couple of WIP's to finish and I am planning on sticking to some small projects such as mini quilts, wall hangings and bags until I can get my 3 big quilts quilted and finished!!!
BUT I succumbed to a new app for my iPad and it might tempt me to start a new quilt - it's called
Quiltography and it's brilliant !!!!
I have considered it for a while but decided to give it a go and have spent all afternoon adding fabric so that I can use some of the Moda ready cuts I have saved up for special projects.
This is a snap of the first quilt i did in about 5 minutes after downloading it. You can easily import your fabrics so you get a good idea of how a quilt will look very quickly.
But then this morning a new magazine arrived and I fell in love with the Chines Lanterns quilt which I feel tempted to do with my Rowan and Kaffe Fasset fAbrics.!!!!
So despite being full of the best intentions the projects are piling up already!!!
The Quilt retreat to Scarborough is going ahead and we have 16 signed up so that will be great to look forward to in April.
A good start to 2014 !!!!
