Something New

My design board has been moved back into my sewing room, and is slowly getting covered with an assortment of  blocks.

Another new quilt is in progress. I was inspired by a short video my sister sent me of a quilt reveal. I watched it, had an AHA moment, and raced off to find a pen and notebook.  It will be another of my scrappy many different block quilt, based slightly on Tales of Cloth's - Seedlings Quilt, fetureing low volume ,Liberty and lots of other fabrics from the stash.  I'm trying to not buy new fabric for this one.  

Apart from the log cabin blocks I have just made, it is going to incorporate some English paper pieced blocks, three of which I have made already, probably a lot of my hexis that are sitting in a tin waiting for the right project,  it may also include some of the the Liberty/low volume x/+ blocks I have been making.  I'm quite enjoying being this inspired about a quilt, especially as I seem to have lost my sewjo for garment making.  Hopefully it returns with the warmer days we have been experiencing and an upcoming trip to Brisbane to look forward too,

Also enjoying the small posies I can make from violets and cyclamen currently flowering in my garden.


  1. Good to see your quilting mojo is back and that you have been inspired to make log cabin blocks. One of my favourite quilt blocks, though I have not made many myself. What board did you use for the sesign wall? I was thinking of making one that can be moved too! Enjoy your Sunday!

    1. My design wall is a piece of plaster board, that pins can go into easily. I just covered it with batting. I do think I need a slightly larger one now

  2. Lovely busy desing wall Julie! Your log cabin blocks are super, love how you've added a bit of Liberty into the mix! The Seedlings quilt has always tempted me too.
