Where has the month gone?

Can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. I've been having a look around to see what I've actually been up to & it appears to be not alot. I do however have some photos to share with you of some of the things I have acheived... oh yeah & some of the fabric I've bought... yes... more fabric... it's an illness I tell you!!!!

This is the first block in a Block Of the Month (BOM) that has been started at my quilt group, Shirley Quilters. I decided to use the same fabrics that I used to make my pinwheel quilt as I have quite a bit of it still available & thought it would be nice to see a totally different project made with the same fabrics.

I attended a Jelly Roll workshop run by my quilt group early in February. I chose to work from the book Two From One Jelly Rolls by Pam & Nicky Lintott & the design I chose was the Speedwell Quilt. This picture shows the layout of the centre of the quilt. I still need to sew it together & pick my fabrics for the border. The Jelly Roll I used was Lumiere d'Noel by French General.

Here I get to share with you some additions to my fabric stash... yikes... must sew more!!
