It’s always lovely to get fabric sent in the post to test and being a London girl, I suppose it was appropriate that the fabric I received were these London Town Fat Quarters from the Craft Cotton Co.
You’ve spent ages piecing your quilt top and the excitement mounts as all your blocks form into rows and then one big quilt top. You stand back to admire your work and you can’t wait to move onto layering it up…
This coming weekend sees the first retreat for those the Bloggerati, the wonderful group that write your blogs, provide you with hints and tips and other goodies on the website. It’s also the first retreat I have…
I’m nervous about things like parking and food too (being disabled plus coeliac) which also makes me a bit nervous sometimes about going new places. WE WILL BE FINE! We will thoroughly enjoy ourselves and even if things don’t go according to plan it will work out. See you there!
Look forward to meeting you Corinne, and I’m sure everything will work out well
YI am sure you will have a great time. Rescue Remedy gets me on planes…sheer cussedness makes me stay on them, despite the rising panic. Just keep to the 15 minutes. Then another 15..and so on
and then we wonder what all the fuss was about 🙂
I’m nervous about going too. Not for the same reasons, but still a bit worried. And go from ‘I can’t wait’ to ‘hmmm, not sure’. So I will feel a big sense of achievement once I’m back home again. Look forward to meeting you. x
I think that picture perfectly sums up the pendulum swings the brain goes through. I’m sure we’ll all have a wonderful time.
Jane – thank you for this blog – I too am feeling a bit unsure about this weekend, trying to get everything ready, and wondering what I’m going to bring along to it to work on. We will have a fantastic time – the retreat will be what we make it! Now I just have to make it through until Friday, and try to sort out the quilting on a quilt that I said I would make for a raffle – it needs to be finished by Thursday, and I’ve unpicked the quilting twice today…
Oh, that must be so nerve wracking Christine. I am sure it will be wonderful when it’s finished. Look forward to seeing you
Jane, you are a very brave lady! Although I am not going (too far to go from Spain, and we are over at Christmas – so the expense is another factor), I will be thinking of you all and hoping that you all have a great, rewarding and enjoyable weekend. I used to live about 2 miles away from the venue – so I can picture you all there. I am sure you won’t need that corner to hide in – you will be just too busy enjoying yourself. Hugs xx
Thank you and hopefully, you’ll get there one year Sue.
I hate anything going to waste and that included patchwork blocks. When I was doing some pattern testing for the Sew A Row Fire Quilt, I ended up with two blocks that weren’t used. They’d been sitting in the b…
Even little three inch blocks can be quilted, bound, and used as cute coasters
That’s a great idea
I used my one orphan block from the sew-a-Row as a Mug Mat and gave it to the recipient of my Spring Mini Swap.
That was a great way to use it, someone else can get pleasure from it too
I sent mine to The Grenfell Quilts
Lovely that they were able to become part of such a special project
