This blog is where I share with you all my quilting and sewing progress. I love English Paper Piecing and hand quilting but also enjoy making small items like pincushions and throw cushions. Please leave your comments and let me know you've dropped by.

Also, please feel free to have a look at my new cycling blog. This is a new hobby for me so there will probably be some fun and falling on the way!! Click on the pic at left hand side.

Snowball Quilt for Winter Maybe?

I have been auditioning fabrics today with the possibility of a Snowball Quilt to be hand-pieced over the next 2 - 3 months. I have some lovely blue fabrics which would combine with a cream snowball very easily. Do you like them too?

The Paisley fabric is simply gorgeous but is a slightly different shade of blue than in the photo. I am so looking forward to working with these fabrics and the small 2 inch squares that will be hand sewn together to make the 9 patch squares between the snowballs.

But first I must finish some bright floral spool pieces. I bought the bright floral 4 inch squares as they were so cheerful but then didn't quite know what to do with them. Now I've decided to make the spools with black fabric between each. Here are some of the VERY bright spools so far.

I chose black as I thought it would really set off the bright colours nicely. Hope it works!! Just off now to do some more.
Wherever you are, I hope you're having a peaceful weekend.
