Planning, planning, planning

As you might have seen on IG, I recently won a huge bundle  of Flurry from Dashwood Studios and Lynne at Lily's Quilts!

Since it arrived in the post last week, I've been plotting how to use the 14 yards that came in the box (which was so heavy that Hubs wouldn't let me carry it, as I'm still healing)


A scribbled list of ideas

The first quilt on the to-do list is a present for my in laws for the house in Cornwall. As there's a bit of a seaside /nautical theme going on, I picked out these fabrics for a St Louis 16 patch quilt. I'm planning on using one fabric per block, paired with a neutral solid. 

The next two ideas are a bit more long term as I can't get started for a few months. Last year I made quilts for my niece and nephew (they're cousins, not siblings) for their first birthdays, and we've just found out that they are both expecting a new brother or sister. So these are the two possible colour schemes for a Giant Star Quilt, inspired by this. The girly option has 7 fabrics included, and the plan is to add another pink, perhaps one of the very sweet prints by Aneela Hoey. The boy option has 8 fabrics picked out at the moment, but I'm thinking of replacing one with another print. Can't wait to find out the gender to get a start on these! 

Now, all these plans are reliant on the boy continuing to nap without being held  - current record is an hour. Photos are IG/unedited for the same reason!


  1. Cherish that hour, run round waving our arms about for a bit!!
    Lovely win, enjoy xxx

  2. Lucky you winning such gorgeous fabrics! And yes, everything is dependent on how much they sleep!!!

  3. So much fabric, so little time :)

    Have fun making plans whilst your Lord and Master sleeps!
