New quilt start

Well here's to my first post, thanks for taking the time to stop by. I'm going to be updating the gallery etc; over the coming days, but I thought I may as well get started.

After lots of cushions and iPad covers it's time to start planning a new quilt. I've decided on a boys quilt this time and am going to use some of the Alphabet Soup fabric from Riley Blake.

I love the strong colours in this selection and hope to have a simple but striking quilt at the end of it. Well that's the plan anyway. I've started cutting and will get a start on piecing tonight when my little girl is in bed. I really wanted to team some grey fabric with this but am slightly short of it, so white it will be. I seriously can't buy any more fabric at the moment as I may well get shot! 

Nobody warns you of this addiction, not only to sewing and quilting but also to fabric shopping. Now believe me when I say that I HATE shopping, but fabric shopping, now that's a different beast altogether. It's the same way I feel about shopping for art supplies. Heaven, just pure and simple.


  1. Great to see more modern sewing blogs from Ireland - best of luck!
