I have received 2 lovely packages in the mail from generous bloggers who held giveaways. I won the Kona Cottons Jelly Roll from Violette and have great plans to make an Amish inspired quilt. The Amish style quilt pictured is made by an Australian designer, Joy White. She has a web site where you can purchase her gorgeous patterns here...From My Hands To Yours. I love the way the black background makes the solid colours pop.
The Kona Cottons are the Dusty range so they will be perfect. I don't know if I'll make the Lancaster Stars or a Churn Dash block but I like the blocks on point.
Even though I've been really busy with Mum I did (a little guiltily) manage a quick visit to my LQS and made a small fabric purchase. Some browns and pinks for the Jo Morton basket wall quilt. I also picked up the latest American Patchwork and Quilting. It has a great article on Jo Morton at home and how she decorates with quilts. Yum.
I have posted this picture of Jo Morton's basket quilt before but this is what the brown and pink Fat quarters are intended for.
The fat quarters below I won in a giveaway from Jera. I won the Fabric Sicko award. I confessed to being a total fabric- tradgic- addict!!!
Well I hope this posts because Blogger won't show me a preview!!!
Bye for now,
