The sun is shining but there is a real nip in the air today here.
Yesterday I got a pile of Bee blocks off in the post. The ones you won't have seen are for a Siblings together quilt our Bee a Brit Stingy ladies are making. Never heard of Siblings together? Then read all about it over here at Lily's Quilts.
I have also been experimenting and came up with this wee block. The green is a practise run and I will be using mostly blues and pinks I think in the actual one. I have written down all the bits and bobs for this block so I have a little pattern for it.
My dad is a bit of an antique dealer and is always raking around the markets and charity shops for things. He frequents the infamous Barras every weekend. He picked up this brilliant patchwork book for me. I think it was first published in 1958. It is great and is mostly about EPP but I particularly loved this quote from it. Wise advice indeed in the last sentence.
