Gosh it’s Friday 13th.

Are you suspicious? I don’t think I am but sometimes find myself acting in ways which would indicate that I am – not walking under ladders, cracks in the pavement etc.

Quilting superstitions include – never make a quilt with 13 blocks, which I think would look odd even if I was tempted to try it.

Quilting Daily has many more quilting superstitions, many I hadn’t come across before.

Even though it is Friday 13th there is lots to get on with in my studio. The design wall is covered with blocks for the Patchwork Basics series and more will be added next week. You can follow the series both on IGTV and YouTube. The block collection will be made into sampler quilts next year. ( how strange it feels to be saying that )

Christmas has come early this week with a number of the block swap blocks arriving. The members of the group have made their designs in a blue and white colour scheme for me. They are perfect as I asked for a colour scheme to reflect Willow Pattern China. We have also welcomed another member to the block swap group which is great as this will mean we all will have 9 blocks to play around with.

Later today the studio needs to be prepared for tomorrows ‘Cushions for Christmas’ workshop. Most of the fabric has been cut in preparation, and the last fabric has arrived so that can now be prepared. Its going to be a fun day of folded patchwork.

Don’t forget the fabric competition which is running until November 30th 2020 Choose your favourite flying creature from the panel and leave a comment on the Spirit of Flight blog post.

The picture at the top of the post is the path behind our house. We couldn’t say indoors on such a lovely day, so my blog was delayed by a walk in the Autumn sunshine. We have to make the most of sunny days at this time of the year.

Hope you have had a good Friday 13th too
