Bet your floor is cleaner than mine though, lol! Love the quilt you have on the go, in all kinds of places!! Thanks for visiting - the clearing has been done slowly and steadily over the last 3 years (my brother mainly!) but the photos are nice keepsakes to have. Helen 2

You beat me to it this morning Fiona.Thanks for already visiting me. So winter is here...dark dark dark. It's draw the curtains and snuggle up with a bit of knitting time [if only I could keep the eyes open eh?]. Isn't it funny how our crafts are seasonal?
Really love your quilt.
Have a great week.
Hugs,

Those squares are so pretty, love the soft tones of it all. More quarter inch seams eh? You'll be doing them in your sleep soon!! How's the crochet coming on?

Lovely colours, Fiona. Looking forward to seeing the finished piece. I have always spread things out all over the floor, cut out fabric, spread out squares for blankets, etc. But now - it's the getting up after grovelling that's so difficult - must be my age!
Take care. God bless.

I've recently bought a pack of fabric charms because I liked the patterns, but I don't sew and now I don't know what to do with them. Yours look great! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #32

I can just see all of the vintage house dresses and aprons this fabric came from! I can't wait to see the finished quilt!

I saw this on your IG feed and love the beautiful colours. I liked it so much I asked for a pack of squares for christmas! They look so much fun. I love the surprise element of vintage fabrics too.

Determination is a wonderful thing and usually brings results, in this case such a beautiful kaleidoscope of colours! Brilliant¬

That looks beautiful and it's really taken me back to my childhood because my nans used to have bedding in those fabrics :)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Hi Fiona, what glorious colours. That will be so cheery when finished. The sheet form is called Tack n Peel, and I have some of that on a couple of blocks too. Trouble is, you still need something to hold the stamps on your storage sheets, hence the TIOO on the back of the stamps. Yes, I find it works great, I don't have any problems stamping without the foam. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #14 xxx

Such a fantastic range of colours - lovely and cheery! Thanks for visiting - tissues are patterned and I also bought scalloped edged circular napkins.Chrisx 38

Awww that is going to be so pretty when it is finished - hope you will share when it is completed.

The reason I can make quick cards with the coloured stamped images is that in the evenings when I want to watch TV I usually sit with a pile of images to colour in on my laptray - then when I am ready to make cards I do usually have a pile of images ready to go (I do the same when we go to Meadow Barn - I just take a pile of pre-coloured images and it really speeds things up) x

Hi Fiona
the thing about those big print vintage fabric is that although you have used the same fabric a few times ... it doesn't look like it ....great colours
