On the roll!

For the past few evenings, I have been browsing craft blogs, reading quilting/sewing books, and getting the sense that the Bernina is beckoning me to the worktable… Finally, I got round to visiting the quilt shop and bought fabrics and hexagon templates so that I can actually START SEWING instead of marking out the pages for ‘future projects’.
It is week 2 at Crazy Mom Quilts’ Star Quilt-A-Long and I’m just done with week 1’s block. Will be working on the 2nd block soon, I hope! I’ve decided to make this a ‘yellow’ quilt. I don’t have much yellows at home, but I think it will go quite nicely with our Birch dominant theme in our home. :>

And I got into English Paper Piecing and I’m working on the hexagon flowers with the template I picked up from the shop. I was going to start off easy, picking out a big-sized hexagon template (2.6cm), thinking of making coasters, table topper, etc. And I’m using the 1930’s themed fabric for this project. Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet, but I’m just going to keep at it… who knows, it might just turn out to be one of those ‘grandmothers garden’ quilt! :> I keep the project in a clear plastic file box and it is so easy to bring along and work on it while I wait at the clinic, etc.
AND I’m been ‘inspired’ to join Bonnie’s Orange Crush Mystery as well. I think I should begin with gathering the scraps first, or perhaps stop looking at the craft blogs ;>
Anyway, this Saturday is the Colourwash workshop. Will be working on a ‘trip around the world’ quilt! AND there will be a sale starting Thursday at the quilt shop. A good start to the month, eh? :>
