This month on the blocklotto, we are choosing our blocks (traditionnal) but they have to be made with 30s fabrics and WOW as a background. I have choosen which blocks I will make now: 3 shoo-flys which were one of the monthly block a couple of months ago, 3 churn dash and 3 friendship stars. Patterns will be adapted from the quilterscache website from Marcia Hohn's free patterns. This is a great resource for quilters with thousands of block pattern available. I have also selected and started to cut my fabric for the blocks. I had some left-over 30s fabrics from a Spring Fling swap I did on the Dear Jane list a couple of years ago. Have a peak at my fabric selection:
I also baked some yummy Danish Pastries before my friend arrived so we could have a nice afternoon tea after her trek from Paris and our stroll from the station... in the rain. But I forgot to take a picture and there are all gone now so sorry, I won't be able to make your mouth water this time!
Finally I have made the jump and joined the Great Hexagon Quilt Along - too (GHQA2) today. I will have no excuse now not to start playing with these lovely little shapes that I have been wanting to experiment with for a while now. Sew much to do, sew little time!
That's it for now!
