A New Project

On Sunday I wrote a post about the gorgeous fabrics that my lovely friend Chrissie sent me. 

And I have come up with a plan and put them to good use.

Here's a little sneak peek of them so far, all cut up and laid out but not sewn together.   I wonder what it's going to say...

And yes, in case you're wondering, that is an absolutely fabulous and exclusive New York Times print alternating with the black on white city scape print.  It really is to die for. 
I'm so looking forward to getting on my machine and sewing these 3" squares together.  All 234 of them.   I've had to put them all away for now, in a super organised fashion! 

In other news, I've entered the Blogger's Quilt Festival with my Anchors Away quilt, in the baby quilt category.  I even managed to get some 'on location' pictures.  I'd love it if you'd take a look, and I'd love it even more if you vote for me!  Are you entering??

I'll be back soon with more photographs from the Kaffe Fassett A Life in Colour Exhibition that I went to last week.  You can read part one here

Thank you so much for stopping by.
