Wow that's lovely Rosemary. Did you hand quilt the hearts? They fit really with the colours.

You've all inspired me to get my pieces out and finish my QAL too. Pictures are a bit dim but here it is:


Thread: Sewing cabinet question

These cabinets look great, think one is making way onto my wish list! I'm going to the Stitching show at Event City in Manchester at the weekend, so I'll have to see if there are any on display.

I love my scraps too Nicola, beautifully pressed as well, felt guilty for not ironing mine! Glad you like the patterns, I know what you mean some of them are too good to use, glad they've gone to a fellow fabric lover.

Translation of Monique's message:

Denise, I've received your January block, it's great, thanks very much.

I've posted mine today but I think that the postman had already left, so it will go tomorrow.

03/02/2015 19:25:22

No problem Beryl. I posted your block yesterday so hopefully you should have it soon. We'll both post photos when they arrive. Thanks

Looking very nice Rosemary and Lexy, good to see how the fabrics can look so different when combined with others. I've got a bit ahead of myself and done the last block too, I just need to do the long side pieces now, will wait for the next magazine for that.

I haven't heard from Nicola either, I've got my squares ready too, hope she gets back to us soon.

Lexi, I did check but I don't have any white tone on tone either, sorry.

I like the swirly blue, like shimmery water.

I did find the yellow a bit strong when just combined with the other swap fabrics. I think it's just because the other 4 are all quite fresh colours, where as the yellow is warm, as well as fairly deep. The blue stars is the same depth, but doesn't stand out as much because it tones in with the other 2 bluey green fabrics. That's why I started added more fabrics to try and make them mix in better and then ended up with a mad scrappy combination!

I do like the yellow though, it's pretty and I will use it in other pieces I'm sure.

NB some of my blocks mysteriously ended up the wrong way round, good job I've got a nice unpicker!

Yes, looking forward to it Rosemary.

I've got 50 pieces ready for you Nicola, I'll send you a PM with my address.

Lexy - I'll have a look and see how many white and cream tone on tone I've got, probably not that many but I'm happy to send them to you.

26/01/2015 16:39:27

Great, I'll do some chopping later and let you know how many I've got to swap. I'll make sure they're all unique. Some of them are wider than 4 inches, so I'll leave them at the full width by 4 inches. I love new fabric too, it's like getting a lovely present in the post!

I'll swap some scraps, how many squares would you like? Also do you want them to be all different?

My fabric has arrived too, thanks very much for the selection. I'm going to finish binding my UFO tonight, then will hopefully make a start on the next block for the quiltalong.

21/01/2015 13:00:05

Great, will look forward to receiving some lovely fabric, that's the best kind of parcel. I really should have finished the binding on a ufo before starting this one but couldn't resist
