totally groovy quilt along

my fabric for the totally groovy quilt along arrived today - I'm so excited to be able to finally start on this one.

I tried curves a few months ago with the New York Beauty blocks (which I must finish as well !) and I wasn't that confident but hopefully with a few of the curve tutorials Alyssa is having on her blog and with the help of the curve master foot I might just be able to do this pattern :)

Kona Solids - eggplant, cerise, petal, azalea, sprout

I'm really happy with the fabrics - the petal fabric is a little darker than I thought but with the other bright fabrics its probably just as well !

I love the azalea and sprout - they're just perfect ♥

I also received a few more fabrics for the hexy mf quilt along - I didn't quite have enough fabrics in the "cool sunrise" Lilly Belle fat quarter bundle that I won so I got some more Lilly Belle "warm sunset" fabrics that will put a bit of pink into the quilt - and you know how I love pink :)

I also bought some much needed glue stick refills - its amazing how much glue is needed for basting those hexies - and some perfect circles so I can finish the centres of my craftsy bom dresden plate blocks - I also have a dresden plate kit I purchased back in March that I still have to start so the circles will come in handy for the centres of those dresdens as well !

also in the mail today was a gorgeous little name tag from my ratz swap secret partner Karin who is from Sweden - how cute is that :)  Karin writes her blog in swedish (of course!) so I'll have to get the google translator working for that one !!

oh, and before I go - just wanted to let you know - I've had a glitch with my computer which is why I've done 10 days worth of posts in the past few days :)


  1. Oooh, yummy fabrics! My iPad shows your blog text as pink text on white and it always strikes me as an odd choice ... Until today when i carried on down reading more and more of the new posts, and hit a band of pretty brown background, *now* I understand the pink, LOL

  2. Was wondering how you got so much done and posted every 5 minutes! Lots of potential here!
