Some photos today of another Rose Star block completed and some tentative fabric choices for my next. While England where playing on Sunday ( sorry guys!) I cut out over 200 paper pieces for piecing while on holiday next week. You know for those quieter times in the evening when the kids are asleep.
I am really, really enjoying making these! I love all the different steps to English paper piecing and the overall effect of these is just gorgeous!
I also made a recent purchase from the lovely Village Haberdashery shop. Great packaging and lovely fabrics.
I was boring and just got some Quilter's Linen in grey but I love this for backgrounds and can't wait to try it out! You may also see I have bought a zip!! I have never tried inserting a zipper so I plan to try making a little pouch out after our break. I will be using a great tutorial in the retreat issue of Fat Quartely ezine. Click on the link for more info. It is worth the pennies!
Oh yes and more Aurifil because it rules and is excellent value!!
On Thursday I shall have some exciting news to share with you all so stay posted for that! I can't wait!
