Have you been reading the Quilty Pleasures blog this week? Do you know that another 100 Blocks issue has just been released? It's my favourite magazine, and here is a small sampling of my collection. That's a lot of block patterns in that pile of reading material! There are lots of prizes and free issues to win on the blog this week, so make sure you check it out.
**Bonnie Hunter's block reveal is today - click here to see her new block pattern.
I have been working on one of my 100 Blocks projects. This is a block from issue #3 and it's called "My Easter Dress" by Sonja Callaghan. (In case you missed it, you can read about the piecing of the block here and the inspiration for the block here.)
This is the beautiful backing fabric that I bought just for this project. Isn't the selvage cute too?!? I would have liked the selvage to be wider, because it is so very sweet. This is a Robert Kaufman fabric called 'London Calling". It is a very soft fabric with a high thread count and lovely to work with.
And the quilting is started with some simple stippling in the grass. It's so fun to be doing some machine quilting again. I've missed it! This is just a 12" block so it won't take me long to finish.
