Love it, love it, love it!

I absolutely love the new Rouenneries range from Moda.  Mum bought a layer cake and I took it into work to show a friend.  She fell in love with it too and picked out her favourite five for me to make her a quilt.  These are the five she picked.  Gorgeous, right?

I started cutting it out and it was so lovely that I couldn't stop.  5 hours later, at 3.30 in the morning, I had 6 blocks done and now I love it so much I don't want to give it away.  Sigh...

Excuse the toes.  I had to climb up on the table to get a decent picture.  For future reference, not a good idea at 3.30 in the morning when you are quite exhausted.

First quilt for sale

I am proud to announce ..... Drum roll please ...... my first quilt is now for sale on etsy.

I am so excited, I hope somebody likes it enough to buy it.  I made a pact with the boyfriend that I wouldn't buy anymore fabric until I had sold a quilt to cover the costs.  I've already broken the pact, though, but it was an absolute necessity.  I was in Oman and saw some beautiful silks for only £6/m for 54" wide fabric so I snapped it up to make a quilt for a wedding present.  I'll show you how I'm getting on soon.
