When she was at the Festival of Quilts she signed up for a Block of the Day with the Gourmet Quilter. I'd seen the quilt and hadn't really thought much about it. After she mentioned signing up though the quilt started to whisper to me, and then shout, So to shut it up I too have signed up.
The idea is simple, starting January next year, you get emailed 7 block patterns a week to make which eventually be sewn into a 84" square quilt. There will be 365 4" blocks making up this quilt.
At the moment there is a code giving you a third off the price of the pattern and the quilt and details can be found HERE
Next up another pattern purchase and news of a Blog Hop that I'll be participating in.
Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts has released a new quilt pattern
Isn't it cute. She'll be blogging it as a sew along in the Autumn but you can also buy the pattern now and in October take part in the Blog Hop of finished quilts. Looks like I'll be on a fabric buying frenzy this week. Haven't narrowed down a palette yet.
And talking of sewing I've been doing a bit, and I do mean a bit, of hand sewing.
I had a magazine given me a few months back that came with 500 2" (ish)paper hexagons so I decided to use them and make a scrap bed quilt. Well I say bed quilt. it depends how long it takes me to get bored with it. It could end up a cuddle quilt. or even a table topper.
