Oooopppsss..... new project..........

I am loving using these fabrics
(Judie Rothermell - Judie's 25th Anniversary fabrics)


to make my 9 patches each month....


they are really quite nice and easy to do and makes for a fun afternoons stitching....


Thanks Trish, for facilitating this fun swap

.... I was a bit overenthusiastic when I ordered the fabrics ... and there are other which I won't be using for my 9 patch... and also some left over from cutting the strips...



I have never actually done a quilting course for making sure my points and seams are correct...

... and Michele over at Quilting Gallery is doing a Quilt-A-Long with lessons for free ....


so I am going to use up these fabrics and learn new skills at the same time

and make this .......


All you need to know about this Quilt-Along can be found HERE

... and we can show ff on facebook too ....

I was persuaded by Wendy and Maria..... 

It's entirely their fault I am starting a new project ..... some peoples!!

anybody else doing this too? ... come on.... it'll be fun....

Righto, Gotto Go.... I need to work on some much neglected Japanese scrappy blocks....

Oh I can just imagine you kicking & screaming in protest at Maria & Wendy, as you go & learn how to be all accurate & clever!! You will do a great job of it I'm sure!

The nine patches have made for very satisfying sewing every month, I will miss it when it finishes. Look forward to seeing how your new project goes.

Maria said...

Its good to be able to lay at least some of the blame on others!!! I often blame my bestie for leading me astray!
