which arrived in my hot little hands last week.
It's got immediate appeal (I warmed more slowly to the last book)
and there's loads of projects I want to make in it.
I'm busy at the moment doing three quilts for which I'm making to swap
for good with two talented people (more about that another time)
and I need to make one for the school auction
and one my sister has commissioned and one another friend....
you know how it is, you end up with a list of must-do projects.
But when I saw the project "bangles" I decided i wanted to make it
with some fabrics I've slowly been collecting up over time.
I also decided it to make it differently to how Sarah did
because I wanted to make it in blocks and I wanted to hand piece it.
I thought it would be lovely to do over the winter.
I had some templates made not realising that Sarah sells them for a fraction of the cost,
so if you want to make this quilt too, pop over to her website and buy them,
they are very good value, ahem.
Here's a picture of the quilt from the book,
I'm going to use a bundle of low volume scraps I brought from Pink Castle Fabrics
for the large hexagon centres.
I'm not a natural fabric hoarder, so I'm thrilled to have enough to finally start
cutting into my precious fabrics. I've added all sorts to my bundle
because I hate just using one line and I think it's going to be lovely.
I couldn't resist just quickly sewing one together this afternoon.
How cute is this?? can't wait to have a pile of them to play with.
Prepare to see this project on the blog a lot over the next few months,
I hope you don't mind!
