This Tanya Whelan Dolce jelly roll arrived in the post today from Saints & Pinners. I had emailed them asking whether they could put me together a roll of strips from the full Dolce range (all 26 designs) and they said that, by coincidence, they had just started making some jelly rolls which will appear on their website next week.
I am going to mix the Dolce with some Kona White from my mate Mandy's shop Simply Solids and put the whole lot together for this summer's paper piecing project. Now I had been talking about doing a hexagon project but, much as I love hexagons, I am not totally nuts about hexagon quilts - I know they're pretty but the patterns always look too old fashioned to me. So I've come up with something slightly different using stars inside hexagons which I will show you when it's under way.
It is Susan (aka Chickenfoot)'s month in our fresh modern been II and she has asked for wonky blocks. These are my first wonky blocks - I tried some before when I made the girls' quilts but they came out rubbish so I binned them. I am not sure whether I like these or not - I love the fabrics and I loved making them but I'll wait and see whether Susan likes them before I'm happy with what I've done.
