It’s not often that I buy fabric because I think it will be popular – rather than me really loving it. But that’s exactly what I did when I chose to add some Circa to my last fabric order. I must say – I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw it! It is probably the girliest fabric I’ve ever had! And yes – NOW I love it!
Anyway, after it started speaking to me, I thought I best listen and got to thinking about what to do with it. And this is what I came up with!
It’s a very simple design, but oh so effective. I made the nine blocks first, and then they sat there over the weekend. When I pulled them out yesterday, I was muddled where to go to from there. It was originally going to be a cot sized quilt, but when I did the math (you know how much I suck at math) I realised it would be the wrong dimensions for a cot size! So, I just re-jigged my technical drawing (this time on the back of an envelope) to up it to a single size. And added some reverse blocks on the ends. LOTS of white space for quilting!
And my favourite view of quilts.
I’ve also made the backing, but it photographed terribly due to being mostly white! So you will have to wait to see that until next week – when I hope I’ve been able to go and buy some more batting and will have it quilted – Fingers crossed!
A little reminder that today is the last day to enter my GIVEAWAY. It ends tonight and the winner will be announced here tomorrow night!
I’m linking up with W.I.P. Wednesday – You can too!
