Productive shopping trip :]

So the fabric shop was great! I got quite a few bargains :] and I picked up a book, for £3! brilliant! it had a design for a big dipper pinwheel quilt, I loved it so much at first sight that I had to buy the fabric for it there and then! I got some really, really great purple dotty material: 

It has a kind of velour-ey look and i love it :D
Then i got some plain white with Little tiny flowers on -  i tried to take a picture but it didn't really work, so I'll leave that one lol
For the back, I got a lighter purple material with smaller white dots :] 

Not sure the picture does it justice - it's really cute tho xD

So I started the pinwheels, and while simple in concept they were hard to line up and make sure that it will all line up. My first is the worst one, but I'm hoping I'm getting better as I go along xD

This is my first block and a sashing strip sewn onto it ->

I know it doesn't entirely match up in the centre but they got better, I swear, look:

:] it looks okay from far away, if i do say so myself xD

So that's that. More to come soon :]

Oh and before I go - this is my cath kidson quilt, made with 7 fat quaters and simply stitched in the ditch, hope you can see it :]

Thanks for reading!



  1. I love both your quilts. The hour glass and the baby girl quilt are both awesome.

    1. Thanks :] Your comment was just what i needed today, the purple pinwheels are driving me up the wall, only two out of eight match up in the middle >.< you can't tell from far away but i can tell! i guess i shouldn't be so much of a perfectionist :]
