I am having a most enjoyable time....

fiddling around with different applique and piecing blocks.
As I have made 2 fairly large intricate quilts over the past 2 years, its really nice to just decide each day, what I am going to do, and not have anything absolutely needing to be  finish.

I have embarked on a BOM with Sarah Feilke.
From what I understand this is a modern quilt, which will be different for me, and I am looking forward to making it over the next 10 months. I am intending  trying to use fabric ONLY from my stash, and am using all sorts of greys I found.

The start of my fabrics, but I’m sure more will be added as I go. I am using some of the fabrics that I have for my Kim McLean Flower Garden Quilt. 

I find when I have them stored away for a quilt I forget they are there, and as one ALWAYS has more fabric than is needed I decided to scratch through the box and use some, along with whatever else I can find.

Sarah very kindly gave the pattern and instructions for making a block album to store the blocks as they are made, but I decided as I had this scrap booking box, I would use that instead.

Here is a photo of the first block ( made twice) and 8 stars. I decided the dark block wouldn’t really go with my greys, and I would have had to buy more fabric anyway, so I’ll keep it for maybe the back.

Now back to some more applique, as I am up to date with my BOM.

Thanks for dropping by
