Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Christmas Quiltalong 2012 - Feb pt2

Well I do hope that everyone is enjoying themselves as much as I am! Surely this is what the internet was invented for!

Mind you, I must say that picking fabric is the most difficult part of quilting, and I've never made a scrappy quilt, so this is a new adventure for me!

So I've spent half the morning dithering over my stash and the attic room now looks like one gigantic jumble sale, BUT I have now chosen a bunch of fabrics for the backgound, dark, medium and light elements of the quilt which I am really pleased with. Hurrah!

I'm not giving myself the option of changing my mind and I'm heading to the kitchen for a coffee.

And I'm going to pop my pinny on whilst I am in there and knock up a little festive something to eat - I rather think that we deserve it...


  1. This going to look gorgeous. I just wish I had the courage to go scrappy! Bilbo will be proud of you!

  2. I just threw dinner in the crockpot. I made need a bit of a nap - being an insomniac, have yet to get some sleep. Love your selection of fabrics - good for you, no changes!

  3. Beautiful choices! I just picked mine and did some cutting and updated my blog with the pictures. Now it's off for groceries and I'll look forward to catching up with everyone later!

  4. I love your choices! Now you have me toying with a scrappy quilt. Hmmm


  5. Very nice selection of fabrics, m'dear. Sorry I haven't been able to join you today but as you know, domesticity of the horticultural kind had to take priority.

  6. Don't change your mind. Those fabrics look great together.
