My place to be creative

Creative Week 12 – Ooops it’s late!

Leave a comment

I like to have my posts done and up on Sunday or Monday at the latest, life got in the way – what more can I say.

We have had an exchange student from Germany with us since Thursday, my little son’s birthday and a trip to Cambridge to see our daughter and to visit the circus, along with meetings and social gatherings at school for the students – we need a holiday now – that’s the excuse, although I have still created several patterns which will see the light of day over the next few weeks.

Just a few quick questions before I post this weeks quilt project – What do you think about the current fabrics available?

Are they the colours you like/are looking for?

Do you prefer modern or traditional?

Where do you buy your fabrics?

Do you dye your own?

This weeks quilt idea – Layer Cake Garden

Layer cake garden

This idea uses 25 pieces of the layer cake or 25 10″ squares or 100 5″ charm Squares.  The quilt itself measures 74″ by 74″ including a 3″ border.
