Sorry I haven't posted since last week but things have got pretty busy round here! I finished a Christmas stocking order last week and am just about finished another. I have also been busy making some placemats which I will share once completed.
Oh and it was my birthday on Friday! 36 years young and as Colin, my other half, helpfully informed me, I am closer again to 40 than I am to 30!! Got to love husbands eh?
So I was very fortunate to get some money for my birthday. And guess what I didn't blow it all on fabric! I was sorely tempted to look into buying an Accuquilt Go baby thingy but decided I wouldn't use it enough. So I bought some clothes AND ordered some fabric and bits and bobs I needed.
I have great plans with the fabric. I have never made a sampler quilt so I am going to make a small one for my living room wall. I thought it would be nice to try some Biblical inspired blocks so I am going to try some of these out - I will be using different colours to these but they just give you an idea of the blocks I am planning;

These are some of the easier ones I plan on trying out first. I may alternate them with something simpler, I am undecided yet.
And the fabrics I have chosen are classic prints -
So what do you think? I am really looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into this one I must admit! Photos of fabric as soon as it arrives!
