I forgot to show you the latest instalment of my fabric club from Somerset Patchwork.
The range is Tavern Red by Paula Barnes.
Lots of lovely reds and browns.
I realized the other day that I was getting a little bit short on reds so this mailout was very timely.
I especially like the four prints in the front - the three reds and the dark brown/black and red print. I know they will come in very handy.
When I receive the fabric clubs from both Somerset Patchwork and Threadbear Quilts, I store them in a special plastic tub in my cupboard. I find that I use most of them in my projects but there are always a few that are left untouched. I started thinking about making a quilt to use them up and I came up with a sampler quilt.
I have this great book by Davina Thomas - 200 Quilt Blocks and my idea is to make a sampler quilt using the blocks in it. All of the blocks are 6" so they can easily be joined together.
One of my aims will be to try new blocks and to practise my piecing which isn't always very accurate. Hopefully by the end of this I will find new blocks that I like and my piecing will be improved.
I'm not going to make all 200 blocks but think I will need either 81 (9 rows of 9) or 100 (10 rows of 10) but will see how it progresses. I plan to use all of the fabric in this tub which are the pieces from my fabric clubs so it will be very scrappy.
The name? Scrap Basket Sampler Quilt.
Until next time
