Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

February Swap Block Received (and a sneak peak!)

(You might have noticed I have tweaked my blog layout a little, not sure I'm at a finish point yet though, let me know what you think.  I'm trying to work out how to add a spot for tutorials to my blog but I'm a bit of a novice at blog set up!)

My February swap partner in Quilting Block Swaps Australia was Maria from Nova Scotia in Canada.  You'll remember I sent her this cute little sailboat:

I received this lovely block along with a little fabric valentine, isn't that sweet!

and a look at the block on its own:

A bit of a teaser to leave you with too!  This is my February UFO project in which I'm using some rainbow charms I got as part of an online swap last year (just a peep!)

I have the top all together now, just have to see if I can manage to get it quilted by the end of February (a feat made more difficult by my hubby and I going away for 4 nights for our 30th wedding anniversary during the last few days of the month and my hubby also having annual leave - I know you know how having your other half around the house interferes with sewing time!). Just have to see how I go!

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. a pretty big sneak peek I think....love the rainbow colours - enjoy your time away.
    perhaps you can put your tutorials on a separate "Page" or use "Link List"


Thank you for visiting my blog today. I'd love to hear any comments you'd like to make!
