Pinch and a punch for the first of the month and no returns. Ha! Gotcha. Once again it is Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog meet. So what did you work on in January? The thing I had the most fun with was this mini quilt which I have now cut into an octagon shape so that it can be hung straight or on point, backed, quilted and bound. My husband who had not thought much of it at the start and had expressed a hope that it wasn't being made for him, has now come around and says he likes it although I'm not sure whether he's just saying that just to be nice. And thank you again to the lovely ladies at Beach Harbor Quilts who let me copy their Eagle Harbor Summer pattern for this mini.
I am seriously considering making a wallhanging or full quilt sized version of this in Oakshott shot cottons and maybe even splashing out on their colourbox which is on sale at the moment. I'm even wondering about doing it as a quiltalong. We'll see. Would anyone fancy making along with me if I did?
