I've been spending a lot of time making blankets the last few weeks..

I finally finished the quilt top for my flying geese quilt.  I'm pretty happy with how it looks but I need to get some kind of border on there and quilt it up

I also made another crochet blanket

I like to have something to do whilst watching the TV.....

And i finally dug out some fabrics from my last trip to the states.... I'm going to make a really quick quilt top with this bunch

I bought these rather lush charm packs and I've found the perfect pattern!

Missouri Star Quilt Company have a tutorial for a pattern called Falling Charms Quilt.

This is definitely my next project.  I'm just waiting for some pretty white fabric to arrive and I'm set!

Oh Deer!

I went through my fabric stash the other night there and don't you just love it when you find fabric you forgot you had!  It's like finding a tenner in a coat you've not worn for a while... but better if I'm honest!

I found this gorgeous momo 'oh deer!' charm pack that I had and some plain moda fabrics.... so I thought I'd do something quick n easy.  So I picked out the pink/blue/purple tones (i've saved the oranges/greens/yellows for another project) and laid them all out until I found a pattern I liked.

Then I sewed them up into a 4 patch square

Using a 1/4 inch seam of course!

So my idea was to have two patterned against 2 plain....

Then I had a jelly roll left over from my last quilt figured I could do a quick and easy lattice border!

I just love the deer print!  So into stags right now.  So once I'd sewn all the above pieces together in rows... it's a good idea to square your squares up before sewing them together!
The next step is to join your vertical rows together and to do this you need to make sure you line up your squares.... I mark the edges of the lattice then pin, pin, pin so that it stays in place through the machine.

Then voila!  A quick n easy quilt project!

What do you think?

I wanted to then turn it into a lap quilt... so I ordered another oh deer pack... as I didn't have enough of these tones left in the charm pack.  I'm hoping to finish it off tomorrow and have a quilting Saturday.

I have the quilt for my Mam to finish for Christmas... the christmas table runners and also another top secret project I'm working on!  My wadding arrived tonight.  I'd like to get these done this year so I can actually wrap them and have them under the tree!!

Blouse fabric?

I am going to make a blouse. Not sure which fabric to use. Light blue or dark blue? I think the light but maybe it's too summery for autumn?

I'm rubbish at making decisions and so in love with fabric. Ill probably end up buying both!
