Isn't this mini quilt I received on the Schnitzel & Boo swap so happy looking. Ruth (IG :@Cutenessfactor) I am delighted this one's mine! Also in the parcel was a fabric card (love this!) and some goodies. There was a bag of Hershey chocolates but Gordon nabbed them before I got the camera battery charged!
Mum also nabbed one of the fridge magnets but the rest is all mine! Gorgeous fabric, lip balm holder and of course the bright and cheery mini-quilt. Thank you so much Ruth for a brilliant swap package!
Last Thursday, I was gifted some seriously cute Hedgehog fabric by Paula. I have plans for this! There is a Quilt-A-Long using Elizabeth Hartman's Hazel the Hedge hog pattern at Gnome Angel this month and I'm definitely using this somehow! I've chosen the larger sized version II of the pattern but may yet end up buying the smaller hedgehog, and the fox, and the whale, at Elizabeth's online shop. If you want to quilt a long, there is a discount code for Hazel on Gnome Angel's page.
The cream fabric is magic paper. You use it with paper piecing as the foundation instead of cartridge paper and you don't have to pull it out! It is very lightweight and has a soft side and a flat side that you trace your template onto. This was all sold out at Stitch Witch's stand in the Knitting & Stitching show last October and Paula kindly shared some. I can feel some paper pieced Doctor Who Blocks coming along this month. Out of the 12 from this Quilt-A-Long I only made 5.
Quite a few more to make yet! So thank you Ruth and Paula for such lovely goodies!
