Well what a day it was yesterday, while siting in the doctors waiting room to see him, DH took a bad turn....I don't know what happened, it was all so quick, but all I can say is thank goodness we were at the Dr's and not driving. The nurses and Dr were amazing, they looked after him and checked him out thoroughly.... I'm happy to say he is fine now.
So how lovely it was to come home to find a parcel from Quiltbook.com a great shop that has lots of repro fabrics and great service....also in the mail was this book. I have seen it around the blogs with chances to win one, but with my luck I couldn't see that happening so I thought I'd just buy it...great book, lots of gorgeous quilts that I can see myself making!
That gorgeous Pincushion was from Pia in Denmark a swap we were in a couple of years ago, I love it...♥
Thanks to the girls mentioned in my last post, I was able to find the pattern I was looking for in a book from our local library.....isn't it amazing how easy and simple it is when you know how!
The quilt is called Sparkling Gemstones, it's in a book " Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam & Nicky Lintott.
I had started going about doing this quilt the wrong way, but now that I'm on the right track....I'm thinking, Hmm, white spotty fabric or the black spotty fabric sashings...why do we do this to our selves !!
The black spotty fabric does look nicer and brighter than it does here...♥
Oh dear, I am so far behind in everything, two Civil War blocks to catch up on... my online Quilt Uni lesson for this week, before the next lesson comes out on Friday...and the borders on DD's Pies and Turnovers quilt.....OK, better going a move on...
Have a lovely day...♥
