Where to begin?

Last week I popped into one of my local Patchwork & Quilting shops, Bee Crafty at Ellington. I have not been there since the lockdown in March so it was lovely to catch up with Maddie and Polly. They have moved things around in the shop and made it safe for small workshops and shoppers alike. As usual when I am confronted with an array of beautiful fabrics I cannot stop myself from purchasing a few, even if I don’t have a specific project in mind.

The first is a lovely fabric collection by Annie Brady for Moda called Big Sky. I have added a Bumbleberries fabric by Lewis & Irene in Mustard to this set. This will brighten up the dark winter months.

The second group is “Rainbow Colours” by Stoffabrics.com, in a vibrant purple and pink colour way. Along with a textured pink from their “Brighton” Range it will be fun set to work with.

I also couldn’t resist a charm pack ” Confetti” by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda.

It is certainly a bright mixture of colours and patterns, and it has started the creative juices flowing this weekend. How many blocks can I make from one charm pack plus a plain white fabric? I have been busy playing around with the 5″ squares and will post the results of my experimentations next week.

Hope you are having a creative weekend – Happy Quilting – Bev
