It's Two Flower Wednesday this week...and some new fabric.

Wednesday seems to have come around very quickly.  I made two hexie flowers for my Confetti quilt this week.

I only need another 25 or so and then I'll start on the little 1/2 inch hexies in the borders.  I love this pattern by Irene Blanck and knew I wanted to make it from the moment I saw the pattern at Quilts in the Barn on Threadbear's stand.

I've got to finish all my White Rabbits To Do things this month as I've already bought my reward.

I bought this Layer Cake from Jane at Want It, Need It, Quilt.  It is Anne Sutton from Bunny Hill's new range - Puttin on the Ritz - in the grey colourway.
I plan to turn it into churn dash blocks, possibly on an orangy background as a new quilt for my wonderful son Jack. (Jack loves orange).

Jane's shop at Want It, Need It, Quilt has the most amazing bargains.  This layer cake was only $30 and I've seen it for up to $59.95 elsewhere.  Jane also sent me a present.  This amazing owl ribbon.

She bought it especially for me as she knows I adore owls.  How lucky am I.
Off to my weekly Wednesday sewing group now. Hope you all have a fabulous day.
I am such a scatterbrain I forget to put in my link to fabulous Karen at Journey of a Quilter for One Flower Wednesday.  Please pop over and say hello, maybe share a hexie or two.
