So thank you very much Mrs PnP... delighted to add these to my own scraps, with the intention of making something that looks a bit like this:
Now, I've just borrowed this photo from Cille who blogs at Live Love Quilt (who also appears in my blogroll and she's from Denmark) who made this quilt from a pattern on the Moda Bake Shop website. I think it's fab, and will really suit all my little bits of Echo. Isn't it going to be a real United Nations sort of thing?
Have you ever come across Sweetwater's Hometown fabric range? It's not that new... and has become a bit difficult to find the entire range. Anyway, I finally found someone semi-local (well, from Australia actually, but that's closer than the US) who had a Layer cake in stock.
|Seems I also had some yardage that matches, plus some lovely grey crosshatch|
So now I'm also thinking, something round and maybe appliqued on (although these particular blocks are totally pieced, eek, inset circles).
|In case you're wondering, this quilt is from this book, which I really like!|
And my flower box outside my studio window is really coming along... won't be long and my bulbs will be flowering.
In other news, I signed up for a quiltalong... mental I know... doing this groovey quilt... no really... The Groove Quilt.

And that's pretty much me for today... well, I did see two monarch butterflies in an intimate moment... have you ever seen butterflies doin' it before? One didn't appear to be enjoying it, could have been thinking of the queen, although it appeared to be dead... may have to google life cycles of such things... have you been up to anything interesting?
