A Block... and an Oops!

First the block...

The January Siblings Together Bee block, chosen my grandma-in-waiting Jenny was a nice gentle start to 2014.

Lovely Bluebird Park by Kate & Birdie from Moda...


This was surprisingly easy to make; I probably spent more time working out which of the fabrics were to be used for which part, and now I think my days of resisting the #economyblockalong are numbered.

PS.  Happy New Year to our super sponsors...




      

            

      



And the oops... I succumbed to the fabric sales!  Well just the one, and I absolutely dare you to ignore a bargain of 94p/FQ, that's £3.76/m folks!!!


I bought 4 meters of Tula Pink's Fern print, because I love it; (I used the 1/2m I had to bind my Marcelle Medallion), so I think I should be forgiven.  There are plenty of other great bargains to be had over at Stitch Craft Create, just saying, as a favour, you know, not to ease my guilt... honestly!

  1. I'm glad to see that I am not the only one who refuses to go on a fabric diet. That is a lovely block too.

  9. Good evening, I found your blog from a mutual follower. I love that you make so many wonderful projects . . . there is so much inspiration here. Great blog. I am a late bloomer to quilting just started a few months ago and I am loving every minute of it. So much that I re-cycled my husband’s old saw horses and made myself a quilting frame, LOL. He never used them anyway :)
    Please come over and help me celebrate my second year blogging anniversary :)
    I'm your newest follower and blogging sister, Connie :)

  15. Great block! I have just made mine this evening. Great link too. I came across them a couple of weeks ago, but glad I didn't buy anything as their prices have come down even more. Slightly disappointed to realise I have that lovely navy Tula already - haha!
