A Pink and Purple Project

This week I received an exciting parcel in the post; a selection of pink and purple fat quarter material. I spent about a day picking them out, and ensuring I hard dark, medium and light shades. A few of my choices have been replaced, but I think they still work quite well in the set.

The purpose of these materials is to make a 365 block quilt. It is a quilt with daily block patterns, designed and released by Kathryn Kerr. I came across it courtesy of the big sister (she's a bad influence!). I have yet to start making blocks yet, but at least I have some material to get started with. I am likely to get more as we go, which should also be quite exciting!

The link to the challenge is here:


I will post more when I (and/or husband) start making our first blocks, but for now, here is a picture of my material:

A Little Bit of Crafting

Alongside the early nights and theatre trips I mentioned in my previous post, I have actually managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafting...
