Single Girl Quilt Along Progress....

Not that it looks like much , but this is what I have achieved today...

All ring fabric is cut and I have started piecing the arcs.

Now for the big decision... I don't want to do my solid as white.

The fabric I'm working with has a lot of fabrics with a white background and I think it will be to hard to see the definite rings.

What do you guys think Orange or Purple....Help!!!

Not keen on Charoal or Light Grey.....
I don't want to have to buy more fabric, need to use my stash!

Birdie Stitches Block #2

March is nearly here!
I decided to take this block slower but this is ridiculous....
Now I'm ready for Block #3.....
 I won't dawdle on next month... Promise

Fat Quarterly are having a coloured theme every month and next month's colour is Violet/Purple..
As you all know it's my Favorite colour so I thought I would share one of my entries for their mosaic..

The colours range from Blue, Green, Yellow and of course Purple
This is an Evening Bag...   

Made out of  variegated hand dyed Velvet and Felt then embroidered.
The Flowers are made with ribbon and fishing line.

It's called Monet which is part of

Single Girl Quilt Along....

Not that I needed anything else to fill in my day but, I couldn't resist!
The Idea that everyone could possibly do the single girl quilt together was too alluring.
Single Girl Quilt Along
After all when a support group is formed you know that you probably shouldn't attempt this pattern by yourself, or risk sitting under the desk sucking your thumb!
My pattern only turned up yesterday, so I spent my Friday Night cutting my templates out.

  I'm using a new line for Moda called Just Wing It, which is me to a tee.
Templates have never been my thing, so it's a big huge step for me, And it is circular so it will be interesting!!

There are 36 Fabrics for each ring and I'm still unsure of whether to do a Baby Quilt at 4 Rings or really go for it and do 9 rings.

Who else is taking part?, and how big is your quilt going to be?
Now for the business end of my blog...
A big thank you to everyone who has entered the giveaway!!!!

And the winner is Poppyprint, Congratulations Krista I will be in touch soon...

Folded Fabric Quilt....

I have been working on some UFO'S that have been
 pushed aside for other things
The First is My Hunky Dory quilt with the folded flowers. This was from a Moda Bake Shop Pattern but as usual I changed it...
I have alternated a folded square with a plain layer cake square
The Second is my New Wave Quilt...
   I did a Large Loopy pattern all over...

Now I'm off to trace the Second Birdie Block, It's so cute!
Head over to Little Miss Shabbys Blog, you will want to join in if you haven't already!
