    Beautiful. I was just at the store yesterday helping a friend pick fabric for a new quilt that she’s making! Now I’m feeling inspired to make one myself!

      Aw thank you as its not perfect by no means but its been fun.
      I go on www.craftsy.com signed up for the free block of the month video tutorial with Amy Gibson, I’ve been following it since jan, I think that block was based on April? But I liked it so much because I could my fabric scraps up I just kept on making the blocks up. Then I sewed up my first row of six put it on my bed to gauge the size and kept sewing until i had enough variety in different colours. I finally finished last night. Phew
      I’m now on to my next one, paper picing hexagons that will take some time as I want this one to be pictorial so when I’ve done a few block I’ll post a piccy. X

    Thank you, it’s been a great way to use up fabric and bring colour to our room. I loved making it too.
