Look what arrived at my place this week. My Backing Kit, Background Fabric and 1st Month of Cottage Charm the BOM that I signed up for with Fat Quarter Shop.
It even comes with all of these cute pre-printed window scenes.
Aren't they gorgeous?
When I got home from work yesterday I couldn't resist opening it and looking at all of the gorgeous Robyn Pandolph fabrics included. I then decided that I would piece it together. The instructions were great and after only 1 episode of reverse sewing the block was together.
The instructions tell you to blanket stitch applique but I am going to give needle turn a go with this one and my gogeous friend Maree who has an on-line shop "Ollie & May" sent me a reel of "Bottom Line" Thread and some No 11 Millners Needles to try so now I have the block ready to start needleturning and will show you my progress in a few days.
This is what the finished quilt will look like.
I have also been busy working on my "Henrietta's Whiskers" Blocks. I am now up to date and am waiting for the 5th April for the next block. Maddie loves the little cushion I made her from the first mucked up block so I am sure she is going to love the finished quilt at Christmas time.
And I have been working on another secret project which I know that you are all going to love. More news on that to come very soon.
I thought that I would also take the opportunity today to show you some recent patterns of mine that have been published. This is my Shabby Gal Tote which is in Handmade Magazine Volume 28 No 11.
And my floral Heat Pack in Handmade Magazine - Volume 28 No 10
And a "Friends Love" in Patchwork & Stitching Volume 11 No 10.
I hope you have a lovely end of the week and an even better weekend.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan who have suffered such terrible tragedy.
