Walking before I can even crawl?

The last few weeks have been really stressful - no one reason in particular, we just have too many things to do and not enough time to do them in! As a result, I've done very little sewing apart from some of the finishing touches on the cross stitch.

I decided that this is actually making things worse as I wasn't having any time to unwind - so I went (online!) fabric shopping! I bought a charm pack of Moda's Half Modern Moon which I *love* and I've found a relatively simple pattern on the bake shop website - but I'm cutting out some rows as I wanted a square quilt.

Hopefully there should be a photo of the layout below, the squares are organised in a vaguely rainbow pattern because this is a present for myself (T-2 months til my birthday) and I love them! I'll then add rows of white sashing in between.

So, we have fabric I really love, a pattern I've adapted, it's my first quilt and I'm using a machine borrowed from my lovely mother in law - what could possibly go wrong?!?


  1. Its like having kids... just take your tme... enjoy what you are doing.. and LOVE the results... no matter what xx

  2. Nice charm pack, and I like how you have arranged these, looking forward to seeing the finished project. Visiting from the Small Blog Meet, I hope you will drop by and have a look at my blog.
