WIP Wednesday [Colour Me Retro]

Look what I got my hands on today!

Colour Me Retro from Art Gallery fabrics!!! I didn't think it was available in the UK just yet, but Kim at the Fat Quarters has it in! And will have some fat quarters at the Edinburgh Quilt Show this weekend!

I hadn't intended to buy this today... but we ended up at the shop, and it just had to be bought. I took a while to decide between this colour way and the green one - I'm pretty sure I'll be back to get the green one!  And of course once I had it, I just had to use it.

I've been looking at all the plus quilts online for a while now, and I have a jelly roll pattern for a plus quilt but I've never got round to making myself one. Today was the day. A day off of work and I have a cushion cover pieced.

Archie decided that he liked it too.

I had planned to make the next two blocks in the Skill Builder BOM and the fabric was cut before I went shopping. Maybe I piece them tomorrow :)

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced - she was saying that she's having her bathroom refitted and it reminded me how "individual" ours was when we first moved in. Check out the bathroom suite! It was the first thing we changed!

I'm off to may a cuppa and read some other WIP Wednesday posts!

I love your pluses. I found you from Freshly Pieced where I just linked a plus quilt I am making for my son.

Wow - you worked quickly on your plus cushion - it's gorgeous!

What? You didn't love that burgundy color in your bathroom? Hard to understand.

Archie has good taste. The quilt is really coming together nicely (and quickly).

Love that new fabric, the plus design is great to show it off.

The fabric is lovely and wow, you made quick work of actually making something with it. Well done!
