Ni-co is the newest collection from Etsuko Furuya for Echino. This is such a fun new fabric line, featuring tour buses, bicycles, cameras and helicopters. It is the vibrant colors that called out my name, and before I knew it this happy stack arrived on my veranda, bundled in just one very tightly packed envelope.

I've also started a new quilt, getting back to basics and piecing blocks I don't think I will ever tire of.
I have been looking for a project that would help me use up the ever growing mountain of scrap fabric for quite some time. Most of my scraps are small, quite small, and difficult to part with. However, inspired by this quilt by Jan from Bemused I have started another Half Square Triangle quilt, made entirely from scrap stash.
So much color and a catalog of my favorite fabrics, all put to very good use.
More blocks to be pieced this week; I have a feeling it's going to be a good week.
