I have been 'really good' and mostly worked on UFOs since Christmas. Today, though, it felt like time to start something new. I recently purchased two Oasis charm packs from Sarah with the intention of making a Schnibbles quilt.
I have always loved 3 Sisters fabric and Oasis could easily become my new favourite.
Isn't it pretty.
It didn't take long to cut all the required pieces ...
and pop them in a tub ready to start sewing. As you can see, I'm making State Fair. I really enjoyed seeing all the Schnibbles quilts in blogland last year so this year hope to make a few of my own.
Yesterday the first block of The Night Before Christmas arrived from The Fat Quarter Shop.
I've been a fan of Bunny Hill Designs for a long time ... hope I'll be able to manage all the needleturn applique. The fabrics are La Petite Ecole from French General.
Today I finished all the piecing for block one ... now on to tackle the applique.
