Pinwheels and Scrap Bags

I've had a little idea buzzing around in my head for the last few weeks, and finally got time this week to put together a few pinwheel blocks. It will only be a small quilt, and I'm sure you all know what that means!

I apparently missed the parcel delivery man this morning, and had to go up to the local post office, but I came home with fabric. I'd been eyeing off the Patisserie range, and decided on the Jelly Girl quilt, and Hancocks of Paducah just happened to have a kit for a very appealing price. A couple of weeks of waiting impatiently, and it finally arrived! Not sure when I'll actually get around to it, but it's here and waiting for whenever I'm ready.

With the kit I also bought one of the new Moda Scrap Bags; these are bags containing co-ordinating off-cuts from when they make the layer cakes etc. It's a bit pot-luck as to what you get, and I got an odd assortment. Mostly a funky, bright cherry patterned range (Oh Cherry, I think), with some of what looks like the new Glace range. No idea what to do with it...but I'm sure it will be useful for something.

My new scarf is coming along well...

And Bella's hiding spot for today? Inside the dishwasher of all places. She is a funny girl.

I've had that Jelly Girl quilt on my list for a while too. It just looks so fun to put together, doesn't it? You'll have to let me know what you think about it! The pinwheel quilt is lookin' good!

Pinwheels are lovely.
Had to comment on the cat. My three year old saw it last night and had quite a bit to say to your cat about 'shouldn't be in there' and then he 'tsk tsk tsking'! *giggle* it was very cute!
