I have felt energetic today! I've been shopping for the last few things I need for Baby, and a few bits for me too - I found a great background cream-ish fabric on sale at Hobby Craft for £3/meter. Good quality, usable colour. Hobby Craft is a hellish place but every so often you can find a bargain (my background fabric for Cosmos Dust was bought in the same way) - I bought all 3 metres that were left.
I decided to spend some time this afternoon laying out and sashing my City Sampler. So the blocks were sorted as per the layout in the book....
And then I laid them all out looking for the sore thumbs. This is the layout exactly as it is in the book.
There were only a couple of blocks that really needed moving, and one was because I had used the same fabric in two adjoining blocks. Given that I didn't once glance at which block would be next to which block, I'm really pleased that nearly all of them worked - some even worked better than if I had been thinking... but I can't get far enough away from my bed to take a single photo of all the blocks, so you'll have to mentally cut and paste these images together.
I love the rainbow look and there are so many of my favourite fabrics in this quilt - I can't wait to get it finished.
Layout sorted, sashing next (my favourite). But the energetic feeling has waned.... and the idea of all that cutting.... maybe tomorrow! Nap time!
