Have you ever forgotten your birthday? No, I haven't either. However, it appears I have forgotten my blogiversary, which in blogging terms is forgetting your birthday. Clearly I was too busy entertaining a 4 year old on his holidays and making quilts. It was on January 20 apparently. Yep - one week ago marked two years since I started my little blog. My witterings.
I have also been hovering around the 400 follower mark for a while now. So together with my blogiversary I think that calls for another giveway. I shall get back to you on that one very shortly. I have a cunning plan.
Today, I assembled the blocks for my second Care Circle quilt top. Last October, I asked the circle to make bright blocks using Elizabeth's Patchwork Wheel block. You can find the super easy tutorial here.
I still can't get over the fact that these blocks were made with lots of different stashes - they just go so beautifully together.
This won't be a very big quilt - it will be 48" square. Once made, the quilt will be donated to Project Linus UK and give comfort to a young sick child. I'm hoping to make the back, get it basted and start quilting it tomorrow or Tuesday and perhaps there might be one last finish for January.
I'm not promising as I have some important bee blocks to attend to including a paper pieced one. Have I paper pieced before? No. What am I paper piecing? A Union Jack from the book, Modern Blocks. Off to find my seam ripper...
