My creative space

There is a bit of sorting through fabric (that's a pretty fun thing to do), ironing, cutting and sorting into piles going on here today.

I am making a quilt out of Anna Maria Horner's 'Handmade Beginnings' book...I am just not sure whether I will crop the triangles on the sides to make in a rectangle...I might be more inclined leave it as a hexagon, or add bits (technical term) to the corners to make it a square. I will re-evaluate as I go I think.
This idea is it will end up looking something like this
I am still abit narky that my wristlet hasn't turned up and now my mobile phone has gone to join it, where the lost things are. 
Anyway, the most exciting thing is who this quilt is going to be for...I'll tell you soon, but at the moment, it's not my news.
Loads of other creativity going on- have a look over here.


  1. Your lost things are probably with mine - house keys, pink bra and a really good red metal pen. If you find yours, please tell mine to come home. ;-)

  2. That's a lovely quilt pattern.

    Can't believe you haven't found your wristlet yet - such a shame! I've now lost my sunglasses, but found another lost item skulking under my latest knitting project!! I'm hopeless at the moment!

  3. Oooh, I see lots of swearing and cursing in your future as goes arm in arm with lots of repetition and straight lines - but also a huge amount of satisfaction. That will be one beautiful quilt.

  4. I've seen that picture, love it!
    Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

  5. Lovely quilt pattern. That will be one beautiful quilt.

  6. What a brilliant quilt design. Great way to use lots of bright, mismatched fabrics. I can see the potential in your fabric piles already...

  7. A fabulous looking quilt. I don't mind the ironing and cutting part because I love seeing and feeling all the lovely pile of fabric laid out on the back of a chair! Good luck with it all!

  8. Oooo... that is going to be SOOOOO good.
    I wish I had been hanging out with you as you went through your fabric stash - too much fun to really even imagine!

  9. That looks lovely! I can't wait to see yours.... and even more interested to hear who it's for!!!
    Hope that phone turns up, meanwhile I won't try texting you..

  10. hello from a fellow crafty mumma! Just discovered your blog and am now following...... I heart that quilt, I am so keen to have a go and make one for my little son - my MIL is an expert quilter and I am a tad intimidated!

  11. Great fabric selection sure it will look fantastic
