Just a few weeks ago my Mum had spoke of a brand new Quilting Shop opening in the main street of her home town. Having not dared to enter for fear of wanting to buy everything in there, I decided maybe she needed a little encouragement, and maybe someone to look after her purse!
Oh, Wow, wow wow wow!!!
What a gorgeous shop.
Couldn't help myself, had to make a purchase
(maybe mum should have looked after my purse!)
What beautiful fabrics, so fresh and modern.
So here I am with my four little fat quarters and no idea what to make...
The floor is covered with magazines and quilting books with me in an almost mad panic trying to find something to do, determined I'd be starting something that night.
Then in my trusty 501 Quilt Blocks book I come across 'Snail Trail'. Perfect! I'd seen a quilt made from these blocks not that long ago and admired it then. Great, something quick and easy (sort of), and before I knew it my MOJO's back.
You know you've got your Mojo when its late and time for bed and all you can think is, 'what if I do just one more little bit'
Then you come to this realisation that every one's gone to bed (some having to work the next day) and the sound of my machine trudging away wasn't going to down to well, besides there was no way I was going to get it finished that night. So I off to bed I went with the brain still counting stitches.
Nevermind, here I was 7.30 next morning back at it, before I knew it, it's lunchtime and I'm finished!
I have the fabric...
Strips are all cut...
