Planning for the New Year...

 
Thank you all for the very kind comments on my quilt blocks on my previous post. I am getting better with each project I do.  My sewing tutor says I always pick something that needs that extra effort!
Actually I choose charts without realising how difficult they are till I start!


         This is going to be my project for the new year.. it's a Robert Kaufman's oriental design fabric.


 My sewing class tutor has given me the chart and it is going to be a challenge. Nine blocks joined and set on points with the main fabric (the bottom one in the photo) as the border surrounded by cream, then bound by a darker colour. Each block is a different design. All the pieces in each block will have to have a stencil cut so that will take me a while! The colours in the photo look a little muted and are much richer looking in real life.

I am so looking forward to sewing it..

Such a lot to do and so little time!
