WIP Wednesday [new project]

I need a new project like I need a hole in the head! But that has never stopped me before. I've been stalking Pinterest for a few weeks now looking for ideas for a quilt for Baby and yesterday I finally found it.

And I knew straight away this was the one, and I knew straight away the colours I wanted to use and the technique I wanted to use.

So these are the fabrics I picked: Painters Canvas; Art Gallery; Lu Summers; Makower; Pearl Bracelets; Kona...

I printed off the templates and I'm going to make it using English Paper Piecing. 

So far I've started basting.

I've also been working on some bee blocks (I'm behind again): this is one of two blocks for Stash Bee for October. 

Because my Viking Sapphire is having its annual service, this old lady is having a run out - made in West Germany, smooth as anything!

And if you recognise the brown, it's because I used it at the weekend for my new friend, Tom! Totally hand sewn and now keeping me company while I sew.

And the mini Swoons I talked about last week... I've made a start!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday!
