A Fresh Daydream

So, with several hundred 5" squares cut out, I've started assembling the first blocks. I've been eyeing off this quilt for ages, from Camille's Simply Retro.

Called Fresh, it's a large 96" square. 

 Each block is made up of four smaller blocks of nine squares each; some very simple HSTs.

When the four blocks are assembled it will look something like this:

My plan is to make all the sub-blocks then shuffle until I'm happy with the balance of colour in each block.

Daydream Two

I've been wanting to make a quilt from the leftover Daydream FQB I've got, the remains from the gift quilt I've been working on. But just hadn't found the right pattern.

Until now. The cutting has begun!

Huckleberry Market Wrap Up

The HBM Extravaganza wrapped up yesterday afternoon, and after two full days on the floor, I am exhausted! It was great to put faces to names, and meet lots of new customers. 

Now it's all over, regular programming can resume and hopefully I can actually get a quilt finished.

Kate Spain's Daydream

I love that feeling when you come home and there is a Moda delivery on the doorstep. Excitement to crack open the box and see what goodness is hiding inside.

This time it's the pre-cuts for Kate Spain's Daydream. I love this range! So bright and yet just a little vintage.

Yardage should be available in a week or so.
