Only two more sleeps, It is SO exciting. It is over two days, Friday 10th (my day) and Saturday 11th. Everyone seems to be very cagey, some have told me they have finished but I have had NO sneak peaks, so aggravating, I can hardly wait to see what everyone has done.
Do you want a sneak peak at mine? Ok then, here it is..........
Like it? You didn't think I would show you more did you? Well....................NO!!! You will have to wait until Friday. Hehe, joy oh joy, I'm so excited!
I've been working on it all week, yes it's because I'm so slow, so I haven't has time to do much else. I started,
I did get to my quilting group on Saturday though. The thing is I never know what to take, then someone said something to me last week, well it was about a Gypsy Wife quilt, but I had a light bulb moment. Why don't I start something and keep it just to take to my monthly group? NO not Gypsy Wife, it's in my WIP's, it has to be over one year to be a UFO. So, I sorted out the fabric I bought in January, no, I didn't show you this lot (blush, blush), and I took it to start a new quilt, want to see it?
I decided to do a modern sampler quilt using Tula Pink's !00 Modern Sampler Quilt Blocks book after seeing Sophie's lovely lovely sampler quilt, isn't it gorgeous? I love everything Sophie makes, its you haven't seen her blog before check it out at Luna Lovequilts. So, what do you think of the fabric? San Mateo, Nancy Rink Designs, Marcus Fabrics. It's all one range, AND it's not a solid, although it does have some of my favourite tone on tones. I bought it on an impulse, and to be honest it doesn't really go with my house at all, so I don't know if I will keep it or give it away.
As the blocks are all six inches and seem to use mostly 1.5, 2.5, and 3.5 inch widths (plus some 1 inch) I spent lots of time pressing my fabric and cutting out strips from it all. Only thing was by the time I finished it was almost too late to get the machine out and start making any, so I worked on one or two embellishments for my mini. Oooops! Can't show you that can I?
Ok then, officially, I have another two cushions form my UFO box to link up to Jennifer's WIP.
Thes one's. It worked last time I linked up a UFO to Jennifer at The inquiring Quilter, so I'm planning to reduce my UFO's and WIP's by systematically linking them one by one.
So that's me for today, bet you can't wait until Friday, I'll be posting the list of everyone else who is participating too, AND a list of everyone posting on the Saturday, so make sure you remember to check back then. I believe there is about thirty of us taking part, yes really, and I know a couple have never participated in a blog hop before, so please show your support to everyone.
