Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

So on the first of every month, here at, we have a linky party to show off anything you've made or worked on (or even fabric you've bought) during the previous month.  There is a second linky party to help small blogs meet and connect with other blogs.  You'll find a few new blogs to follow and hopefully build up the network around your blog and gain some new followers too.  My favourite project of this month was this deaden quilt I made for Dashwood Studio to showcase their new Cuckoo's Calling line by Bethan Janine.  I designed two templates - one for the inner dresden circle and one for the outer dresden circle where the leaves are split into two.

I used one of the prints from the line on the back - some people don't think quilt backs are important but for me, they can really bring a quilt to life and this orange print really pops. 

Once again I quilted the quilt using a pale Aurifil 40wt thread and a diagonal cross hatch.  The pattern for this quilt will be appearing in the April 2015 edition of Love Patchwork and Quilting so watch out for it! 

And what about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you.  As always here's the button to grab - a brand shiny new one this month to reflect the new blog header!

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.  Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.
