One Day in May Creations by Melissa Grant - Thankful BOM

Im up to making my third block of this quilt and it is such a joy to make. Each block is so diverse, you are doing different things all the time. I love things with dimension which is why I love Melissas work so much. Here is the first block I made, I am making two quilts in different colours so you can see the colour interpretations.

A long overdue blog post

Now that the silly season is over, where on earth did those couple of months go. Despite the heat and the busy season, I have managed to do some sewing. I made a few things for Christmas gifts, I am really enjoying printing on fabric and making them into small bowl fillers and cushions, they look really nice when done. I also finished off a Union Jack Quilt, need to make a nice cushion to match now, I love the Moda Etchings range, it is lovely. I made my postcard stitchery into a cushion, I love this stitchery and really need to make some more as it has turned out lovely. Finally I have started a new project, I am making One Day In May Creations, BOM of Thankful quilt, I am making two at once and have just finished Block 1 and love it already. Hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and best wishes for 2012.
