Planning ... and scheming ...

I'm busy quilting away, 
but in the mean time, 
whilst I have plenty that could do with being finished ...

I've been making plans :) 

these little lovelies from Tanya Whelan, I got this time last year when Doughty's came to town ...


and I've got them ear marked for a Jack Attack from Lynne ...


there's a button the side there if you are tempted too! 

And then the lovely Leanne of She Can Quilt, who I had the great pleasure to meet and get to know earlier this year at the Fat Quarterly Retreat, announced a Quilt Along of the Mod Pop quilt she recently pattern tested for Julie of Distant Pickles ...  

I love that quilt, so retro ... so I delved into that enormous stash and pulled out the 30 or so (or something like that) fat quarters and some white on white to get me going  ...


and my templates have arrived, I have the pattern and am ready to get going chopping up a little fabric for this one!

And most recently, I spied something really pretty on fellow Brit Bee'r Fiona's blog, now I'd spied it, but was resisting, after all , I need to finish a few things before I start yet another project right?!

but I was lost, once I saw how wonderful Fiona's rows look, I knew I could resist no longer!
So I went back to Lori Holt's site Bee in my Bonnet and sussed out the fabric requirements ...

now I've been sitting on a fq pack of Sew Cherry since I got it on sale earlier this year, not knowing what I was going to do with it, but as you know, I couldn't help myself!

well, I took out all the lights, and then added some more fabrics from that lovely fq pack of Ruby, raided my scraps of Its a Hoot, and delved into the stash for some more!

So if you are tempted with a little pile of fabric, and want to spend some quality time piecing a quilt, one row at a time, I can highly recommend the Bee in my Bonnet Row Along.  This is a long term project aiming to finish next spring

Go on, you know you want to!

Now, back to the quilting! 
I just though I'd pop in while I took a break to let you know I'm still here!

What have you been planning lately?

(oh, and Doughty's are back this coming Saturday, I've got a list!)

Oh you have some great projects here. I have just had a look at the row at a time QAL. It is very tempting! Di x

Honestly Trudi, you lead me astray! I drop by to read what you've been up to, and that in turn leads me to the blogs you follow, and then.... I'm hooked! Jack Attack looks fab, and so does Bee in my Bonnet Row Along!! Now just give me a tip, how do I manufacture a few more hours in a day?
By the way, did you know Doughty's were coming to Hull? 13th October - just 2 miles from the Humber Bridge.
