So first thing today I stripped off the upside down quilt (which actually is a beautiful pieced Buggy Barn cat quilt), reorganised things, and now it's much better!
Today is the last day of school holidays for my kids, so the rest of the morning was spent tidying, vacuuming and general organising getting ready for my return to work.
I did however to squeeze in a little bit of sewing time. Block One of the sort of new project was completed! Isn't it lovely?
The colours were pulled from this feature fabric (although I had long since integrated these fat quarters into the stash pile).
And added a few extra bits and bobs from the stash
Using this lovely wall hanging as inspiration... I stopped trying to work out how to include the feature fabric within the blocks (sometimes it is hard to use these super large scale prints effectively) - instead using it as the border only.
Choosing this quilt block creates the perfect vehicle to highlight all those lovely fabrics.
