I've had some lovely comments from 'No Reply Bloggers' lately and I hate not being able to reply to you. If this is you, here is a link to help you work out how to fix it! (Starchaser06 not sure if you realise you are a no reply blogger).
My QBSA partner this month was Nikki who asked for any block in black, white and red. I had a bit of a wander around Quilters Cache and found this block, called X Marks the Spot (great name don't you think?!)
I discovered I had a real lack of reds in my stash so I had to go to my favourite red fabric of all time again! Its called 'Suede' and I so wish I had bought a whole lot more, I only have a tiny bit left! Everytime I use this fabric I get comments from people wanting to know what it is. Sadly there is no more to be had anywhere, not in red anyway.
My other project for this month is my UFO of the month. This lucky project number this month over at 52 Quilts is No 9 which for me was to quilt my other Star Surround quilt.
Today I got as far as making my sandwich - quilt sandwich that is! Its only a smallish quilt so I managed to baste it on my kitchen table with a bit of help from my trusty folding trestle table.
I think this is my favourite stage of making a quilt, when you get it all laid out all nice and crisp and flat before you put the pins in. What's your favourite stage?
Thanks for reading my blog today,
