I've not shown much of this along the way as it's been a design that was stitched 'as I was able' over the last seven or eight months.
But today I'm about to cut 504 two and a half inch squares and the quilt piecing shall finally begin...
There are six embroidery/applique blocks inside my "At The Heart Of It All" quilt, plus a sweet patchwork heart for the centre. The rest of the quilt is simply pieced with pretty two inch squares using 1930's reproduction fabrics.
Here's a few peeks at what lay on my cutting table just after dawn this morning...
Tonight, I may have a quilt top.
If you'd like to make this new BOM, the patterns will be inside the monthly Stitchery Club sets over the next 6 months.
There's also a much smaller stitchery-only version which will be simply sashed...
Go HERE to join in, and then gather your pretty fabric scraps because this project is perfect for using what you already have in your stash.
I'll need energy and calm today with such a lot of fabric cutting to do so I've brewed a wonderful tea!
In your tea pot place:
one green tea bag
one chamomile tea bag
one liquorice root tea bag
one nettle leaf tea bag
one teaspoon organic alcohol-free vanilla extract
1.2 litres of boiling water
Steep for about 6-8 minutes, remove the tea bags, and sip throughout the day.
You can add sweetener if you like - I added two teaspoons of xylitol (birch bark) to the full 1.2 litres as it aids with adrenal support, but you may prefer honey.
I drink this hot or cold and it's wonderful either way.
My friend Wendy has just started a free fortnightly "Friends" stitch-a-long. There are nine small blocks that can be stitched very quickly so if you'd like some easy hand sewing go over HERE and see her pretty mini-quilt!
Enjoy your day.
You know what I'll be doing...measure twice and cut once....measure twice and cut once.......
