This month we recommend Bella Solids in Pistachio, Mint, Amelia's Pink, Amelia's Apricot and 30's Yellow.
Obviously, as I'm sure you knew, I could not resist sewing with these pretties. I have a plan.......each month, I'm going to make a small project, using snippets from the bundle, this may be a pencil case, mug rug, a mini quilt etc. This months will involve these little half inch hexies which I stitched watching a film marathon with Poppy on Sunday. I can definitely recommend Matilda if you've not seen it before, Pops and I loved it!
I also wanted a longer term hand sewing project. I've got various machine quilts in progress at the moment, which I'm thoroughly enjoying, but some days all I want to do once I'm back from the shop and supper's sorted is collapse on the sofa and do some therapeutic hand stitches.
So as I'm Dresden mad at the moment, I decided to do an EPP version. My plan is to stitch three English Paper Piecied 8" Dresdens each month for a year. These will then form the basis of vintage inspired 30's quilt...... (I've been Pinning like mad!)Sewline glue stick, which is fabulous for getting those lovely curves and THESE reusable papers. These are then hand appliqued on to 9" squares of Bella Bleached White PFD 97, which I will eventually trim back to 8 1/2" squares once the Dresdens are in place and I'm ready to piece the quilt top together. I'm putting together 'a little happy' tutorial of how I'm stitching the Dresdens, so watch this space!
Here's this months completed blocks .......
That's all for now, but I'll be back to soon with pictures of another finish....I'm on a roll!
