    K, check this out! I started this morning on my quilt, it uses the bright hopes block, I chose about 20 different fabrics to use, here's the first part of the quilt.


    I tried to get some detail of the fabric prints, and some of the colours I haven't used yet. I've already made 2 mistakes, but I can't seem to find them in the pics, so I guess it's not all that bad, eh?

    It's taken me all day to cut out all my pieces and get this far into my sewing, but I'm so hooked on this one, I'm really happy with the way it's going :)

    It is going to be so beautiful. Looks hard, but the close up makes it look a little bit easier. Pictures of finished quilt soon?

    This is going to be a beauty! What size will it be?
    It's OK to miss a few meals when you're on a roll, but don't forget to sleep. We all know that as soon as we start pressing on when we're tired ("I just want to finish this one section!") we start to make dumb mistakes! Well, don't know about the rest of you, but that's what happens to me!!!
