A little impromptu progress

I have made a little progress with my impromptu quilt along all the nine patch blocks are made up and are ready for cutting.
I have also made up the first couple of the other blocks as well as completing a couple of the nine patch blocks.
I am loving the look so far, what do you think?

I have made some progress on the back as well. I love using up all my leftovers for the back, it makes the quilt double sided.
Happy Quilting. x

June Sugar Block Club

The June block of the Sugar Block Club, run by the lovely and talented Amy Gibson, arrived on the 1st of the month, with another yummy recipe to try.
I have made my block called Home Sweet Home.

I decided at the beginning that each block would be a single colour using plain and print fabrics having put together the first six blocks I am loving the way they look.
Now I have a whole month to wait for the next instalment.
Happy quilting.

I am linking up to Lily's quilts small blog meet.
 After a few false starts I am hoping to get this little blog of mine up and running.
I will hopefully be able to update on a regular basis.
Happy Quilting.

All ready for tomorrow

The fabrics are all cut for the Impromptu quilt along that starts tomorrow.
I have carefully labelled and bagged all the separate pieces, there are quite a lot.

I have even cut the backing out as well.
I am using all the leftover fabric from the front.
I have done this before with other quilts I have made. In this quilts case because I am using fabric that I have, which are mostly fat quarters I have cut all the spare fabric into 9 1/2 inch squares to join up.
I had to cut 121 squares so I have to find some extra fabric from the stash.
Looking forward to starting tomorrow.
Happy Quilting.

Shall we Impromptu Quilt along .....

I am joining the Impromptu Quilt Along that is being organised by Katy at Monkey do. The plan is to use the Impromptu quilt pattern by Rachel Griffiths of ps i quilt.

It is a simple quilt using a layer cake as the starting point but i am going to do a little stash busting so instead of a layer cake i have sorted out a stack of fabrics.

I haven't yet decided whether to use the plain red at the top or the checked red at the bottom. I am using white as the background and will use red for the binding.

So why not join in the fun it all starts on the 1st June. There is a Flickr group for sharing your progress.

Happy Quilting.

Sugar Block Club

The Sugar Block Club is being hosted by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock. It is a block of the month programme that gives you a lovely block to stitch, and also a yummy recipe to make as well.


On the first of each month a nice little surprise arrives by email.

I am loving this little project, there is no plan for these blocks you can lay them out however you wish.


 I have just finished the May block.

I can't wait for June............Happy sewing.
