A little Happy Year

Last Summer I joined a block of the month programme run by Sarah Edgar at Pretty Fabric and Trims. It wasn't my normal sewing - it involved Liberty Fabrics and ditsy florals and applique. 


But it also involved English Paper Piecing and embroidery which definitely is me. I absolutely loved every minute I spent working on this project, so I signed up for another block of the month - 12 blocks over the course of a year to create A Happy Little Year quilt. The blocks are chunkier than the Summer Sampler - after all I'm making a full size quilt rather than a mini quilt, and the fabrics aren't Liberty, but still very different from what I would normally pick. There's EPP, applique and regular piecing and the blocks are coming together beautifully.


Receiving the package each month is such a treat - full of pretty fabric all beautifully wrapped up, and the instructions are always clear and beautifully presented.


It's a brilliant mix of blocks I can throw together with an hour at the machine, and blocks which require a little more attention.


The rabbit bottom block is one of the reasons I'm making the quilt - Jess loves it and it will be for Jess one day!

There's still a few more months to go...


But I'm looking forward to hand quilting this monster this autumn.
