What's new?

There has been a flurry of activity behind the scenes, including a much needed stash tidy up and then of course the commencement of a new project.  


A new quilt project means selecting a whole range of new fabrics which I do think is the most fun part of quilt making, running second only to buying fabrics!  I seem to have continued with a Spring theme when choosing fabrics, this time going with a green and blue color palette. So fresh!


And have spent some time working out an effective layout:


I have made log cabin blocks with a large center square and narrow strips surrounding the center to see the effect of changing the balance of this traditional design.  The log cabins are then alternated with a "square in a square" block (four-patch blocks framed with white fabric).

More pictures soon.

  4. I love how you mixed those blocks! Super cute, and the colors are wonderful, so bright and cheery. I have a little boy, so I love with when there are quilts that are a little girly for me, but in colors that don't make it look like I'm carrying a baby girl ;)

  5. I think that limey green is my favourite colour at the moment, especially with the aqua blue!
    Love the combination of little patchwork squares with the white centred log cabins, so clean and crisp but fun too.

  13. I love love the white with the brights. However, over here in NY it has already snowed once, so i do have to say that the spring colors are a little depressing considering we have 6 months of winter ahead of us. Ok I take that back, it is hopeful, not depressing.
