I've been getting ready for the Little Forest Quilt-Along.
I've picked my greens,
I've picked my browns and I've gathered a few sewing essentials.
I've downloaded the pattern. I've joined the Flickr group. I'm ready to go. Roll on Monday - lets get started.
There is still time for you to join in too. Just pop over to Peas in a Pod to find out more.I find this quilt-along so appealing because it only goes for a few weeks and, all going well, I'll have a new quilt top by mid October.
Fussy Cut Hexies
Quite a few people have been asking about the nifty little perspex hexie I use for my fussy cut hexie flowers.
You can buy it from Jane's great on-line shop, Want It, Need It, Quilt. Only $3.50 and a fabulous tool.
